Cherry and Balsamic Pork Po Boy

Cherry and Balsamic Pork Po’ Boy



This recipe for Cherry and Balsamic Pork Po’ Boy was developed for country artist Alex Maxwell.  We asked him some questions and went to work to create this recipe.  This sandwich hits the savory, sweet, and spicy notes perfectly.  This is a slightly fancier spin to something you would find on a food truck outside a concert venue.  While you are cooking, check out our interview with Alex Maxwell by clicking here.
