1poundsSlow Roasted Golden Rotisserie Marinated Fresh Pork Sirloin
1cupwhole berry cranberry sauce
4ouncessoft goat cheese, softened
1/3cupfinely diced pecans
Salt and ground black pepper
Remove the Slow Roasted Golden Rotisserie Marinated Fresh Pork Sirloin from its packaging and place into a slow-cooker. Pour in the ½ cup water and set to cook on ‘high’ heat for 4 hours, or ‘low’ heat for 6 hours. When pork sirloin is ready, remove it from the slow-cooker and rest on a board while preparing the remaining ingredients.
Slice each croissant in half. Use a pastry brush to brush each half with melted butter. Arrange the croissant facing up on a baking tray and place under the broiler for a few minutes, until the croissants are golden brown. In a small bowl, combine the softened goat cheese and diced pecans. Slice the avocado into thin slices. Slice the rested pork sirloin into thin slices, about 1/8-inch thick.
To assemble the sandwiches, spread the bottom half of each croissant with a generous amount of goat cheese; top with baby spinach, sliced avocado and sliced pork sirloin. Season the avocado and pork lightly with salt and pepper. Spread the top half of each croissant with a generous amount of cranberry sauce, then place onto the sandwich.
Make your own seasoned pork: If you don't have access to Smithfield products, no worries! You can make this recipe with regular pork sirloin and season it at home! First, pat the pork sirloin dry with paper towels. In a small ramekin, combine a few teaspoons of kosher salt with 1 tsp of each: garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and ground black pepper. Rub the spice blend into the meat, making sure it's well seasoned all over. Proceed with the recipe.
