Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 12 French bread
  • 12 Italian bread
  • 2 tablespoons mustard (optional)
  • 12 slices Swiss cheese
  • 6 slices Black Forest ham
  • 12 slices dill pickles
Marinated Pork Tenderloin:
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 lb pork tenderloin

Method

In shallow baking dish or resealable bag, stir together onion, orange juice, oil, lemon juice, lime juice, garlic, salt and oregano. Add pork, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Marinate for up to 24 hours.)

Place pork on greased grill over medium-high heat. Close lid and grill, turning occasionally, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, 20 to 25 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.) Cut into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices; set aside.

Spread butter on 1 side of each bread slice. Spread mustard (if using) on other side. With buttered side down, layer 1 slice cheese, 1 slice ham, 2 slices pickle, a few slices pork and another slice of cheese. Top with bread, buttered side up. Repeat with remaining bread.

Using panini press, or in greased skillet over medium heat, grill sandwiches until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Cut each sandwich into quarters.
