Pork is obviously a big thing here in Iowa. So big in fact that there is a contest that happens for the Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich in Iowa and it has been going on for 17 years as of this year. If you are a Pork Tenderloin sandwich lover, this is the place to go!

According to the Des Moines Register, for the 17th Annual Best Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich in Iowa contest the winner is...The Pub at the Pinicon in New Hampton! They call the sandwich the "P.T." and wait until you hear how it is made. The sandwich has a  center-cut, half-pound pork loin which is injected with their own natural juices, hand-cut and coated in flour, dipped in milk and egg wash and then breaded with seasoned panko crumbs and fried.

If your mouth isn't watering by now, I am questioning your taste. The Iowa Pork Producer Association's top award includes $500, a plaque and banner.
