Delicious pork chop sandwiches made with pepper jack cheese, crispy veggies and a spicy cherry pepper mayo.
Cherry Pepper Mayonnaise
Homemade Spicy Pickles
Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
In a baking dish, mix together the flour, seasoned salt, pepper and cayenne. Dredge both sides of the pork chops in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess, and set aside on a plate.
Add the vegetable oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter to the skillet and heat until the butter is melted. Working in 2 batches, sear the pork chops on both sides until golden brown and cooked through, 2 minutes per side. Remove to a paper towel-lined baking sheet.
In a separate pan and working in batches, add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and toast the cut side of the buns until golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Re-assemble the buns and set aside.
Mix together the mayonnaise, diced peppers, lemon juice and some salt and pepper in a medium bowl until well combined.
Smear the cherry pepper mayonnaise onto each bottom bun, top with a pork chop, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, more mayonnaise spread and the top bun.
Serve hot or wrap in sandwich wrap/foil for transport.
To a small saucepan, add the rice wine vinegar, honey, crushed red pepper flakes, mustard seeds, dill and ½ cup of water. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat.
Toss together the cucumber and red onion slices and transfer them to a wide-mouth quart-size mason jar. Carefully pour over the warm vinegar mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 12 hours and up to 7 days.
