Our expertise at creating the most savory hickory-smoked meats makes it obvious that we would serve BBQ, but the fact that we’re located in Iowa means that we needed to serve the best pork tenderloin in Des Moines too. After all, the pork tenderloin is an Iowa tradition, and here at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Clive, we do our best to do this classic Iowa sandwich proud.
Some say that the first person to create a breaded pork tenderloin was native to Indiana, but Iowans know that this delicious delicacy truly belongs to our great state! The pork tenderloin has been a staple in classic Iowa cuisine for as long as anyone can remember. Iowa produces more pigs than any other state in the U.S., and turning that asset into a traditional Midwestern favorite creates a unique sense of pride in all of us.
The Famous Pork Tenderloin – Wobbly Boots-Style
We simply had to try our hand at this famous dish, and according to the diners at our family restaurant in Des Moines, we’ve done an outstanding job! We took this classic sandwich and turned it into something simply irresistible. Even the pickiest pork tenderloin fan will be impressed with this big boy!
We start out with a more-than-generous portion of meat. (This is one GIGANTIC sandwich!) Next, our chefs hand-dip it in buttermilk, followed by a coating of expertly seasoned flour and breadcrumbs. It is then fried to a beautiful golden brown, and placed on a bun. You probably won’t be able to see the bun unless you pick up that humongous pork tenderloin, but believe us, it’s under there! Don’t be surprised if you need a doggy bag to take home when you’re full.
If you’re serious about your pork tenderloin, as most Iowa foodies are, that big beautiful sandwich is the center of attention during your meal.
