Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches

I've been making fresh bread at home lately and one of the problems is always, "What should we do with all of this bread?" Sandwiches are always great with fresh bread and this pork tenderloin sandwich ticks all of the boxes. Juicy pork tenderloin, fresh veggies and great condiments make for an excellent all-around sandwich.
