Sliced Pork Torta Sandwich
1 T. vegetable oil
1 1/2 lb. boneless pork roast
1 large white onion, sliced in thin rings
1 1/2 c. Mexican barbecue sauce flavored with Chipotle chilies
4 (6-inch) French rolls, cut lengthwise in half
2 medium avocados, pitted, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro
Salt, to taste
Lightly oil pork roast and sear over direct heat on all sides. Meanwhile, place
oil and onions in Dutch oven and place in the center of the cooking grate. Cook
the onion, stirring until richly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the barbecue
sauce and 1/2 cup of water. Stir to scrape up any browned bits from the bottom
of the pot. Add the pork. Cover the pot and continue to cook on cooking grate.
Grill until the pork registers about 150 degrees on an instant-read thermometer,
about 30-45 minutes.
Place the bread cut-sides down on the cooking grate and toast until golden,
about 3 minutes.
Transfer the pork to a cutting board. Carve into very thin slices. Salt the pan
juices to taste. Add half the cilantro and pork slices to the pan juices; coat
well. Moisten the bottoms of the bread with some of the pan juices.
Arrange the pork and onions over the bottom bread and then layer on the sliced
avocados. Season lightly with salt. Sprinkle with the reserved cilantro. Moisten
the tops of the bread with more pan juices and place on top to make a sandwich.
Press lightly on the sandwich to compact it a bit.
Serve immediately or wrap individual sandwiches for a picnic.
