Brown Sugar Bourbon Pork Tenderloin Sandwich

In the World Food Championships Taste of America recipe contest, the challenge is to use at least three products from the participating sponsors.  Well, if you know me, I was thrilled to see Boulevard Brewing, Brown Sugar Bourbon, and any Great Value Walmart product.  Considering my love of all three, creating several recipes was easy.  So, with that, here’s the first.
