Rhineland Grilled Pork Sandwiches
Living all those years in Germany you'd think I would have tons of German recipes, alas, all I have is this one.   Schwenkbraten gets its name from the way in which it is grilled, on a hanging (swinging) grill.  "Schwenk" means to swing and "braten" is to roast.  These can be purchased at any of the "Fest" for which Germany is famous.  Enjoy them in true German-style with a robust dark beer or a nice dry white wine.  Don't forget the fried potatoes on the side and a nice green salad.
