We all love baseball season and there’s nothing better than a homemade sub. Today we’re making ballpark pork subs to chow down on while we’re watching the game.

Ballpark Style Pork Sub Sandwich! Check out this EASY loaded pork sub sandwich recipe! Loaded with Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet, coleslaw, tomatoes and french fries - you'll want to devour this sub before game time!

After a long day at work, we come home and want to whip up a delicious meal — but we also know the game is on at 7 o’clock. What are we to do? BING! A light bulb goes off, we have a Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet in the fridge, a pack of sub rolls and a few other things we can toss together for a delicious ballpark sub!

Ball Park Style Loaded Pork Sub

First let me say, I’m going to show you how to make this in a “unloaded” version first. A simple sandwich that anyone in the family can enjoy while watching the game. Then, we’ll talk about how I like to go overboard from time to time and get crazy by creating an off the wall concoction of a sandwich – the loaded ballpark style pork sub!


Our ballpark sandwich recipe only calls for a few ingredients. Sub rolls, Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet, coleslaw, tomatoes, a touch of extra mayo and if you want to make these loaded subs, french fries with ketchup and a sprinkle of salt and pepper.

Ingredients for Pork Filet Sandwiches

This is such and easy and delicious dinner option – especially since the Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is already marinated and ready to roll! We absolutely love the variety of Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork options available.

We make these sandwiches with both the Smithfield Applewood Smoked Bacon Loin Filet and the Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet. The latter being my favorite for loaded ballpark style subs, but both are off the charts good.

It’s raining out right now – spring in New England, right? So we won’t be grilling tonight! What do we do? Slice it up and sauté it on the stove top, that’s what! Just as juicy and good for a nice family meal, that’s for sure!

Prepare your Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork. Slice it into 1/2″ thick pieces. Add a tablespoon of EVOO to a fry pan that has been heated to med-high heat. Cook the slices for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until it has reached an internal temperature of at least 145 degrees F.. 145 to 150 degrees F. is perfect to keep it nice and juicy! Do your cooking in a few batches, adding EVOO to the pan before adding the pork each time.

Now is also the time to get some french fries on too. We’re cooking up some frozen fries in our Air Fryer – simple and tasty and takes about 15 minutes!

Now we’ll get our Italian sub rolls cut in half, slather bit of mayo on the top side of the roll and add about a quarter cup of coleslaw to the bottom half of the roll.

Now add some nice big slices of Smithfield Garlic & Herb Loin Filet. PS: did you know that Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork is 100% pork? It is!

Now this is completely, 100%, optional. I like to get a bit ridiculous with my sandwiches. You only live once, right? I’m tossing a bunch of french fries right on top! Go crazy with it! I put the tomatoes under the pork (so the fries don’t get soggy) and topped the pork with french fries. Now slather them with ketchup and sprinkle on some salt and pepper.

Top it with the top bun and hope you can fit it in your mouth. If not, just squish it down before your devour this beast! The mayo, ketchup, coleslaw and tomato all work in perfect harmony with the Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Herb Loin Filet!

Loaded sub not for you? Or not for the kids? No worries! Just serve your fries on the side like a normal person. :)

After your sandwiches are assembled, serve them in fun baskets like you might find at the ballpark, or wrap them up with some fun red and white checked basket liners. I know, it might be a bit over-kill, but nostalgia is always something to think about!

Turning a meal into an experience that creates wonderful memories is what it is all about! Now flip on the sports channel to watch your favorite ball club kick some butt!
