Faced with the distinct possibility of relocating to Iowa in the very near future, I decided to look into the possibility of a local cuisine:
There is a pork tenderloin sandwich, made of tenderloin, which is pounded flat, breaded and deep fried, then served on a hamburger bun with ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise and dill pickle slices - sort of like a schnitzel burger maybe? Supposedly, this dish originated from the large German population, which first populated Iowa. Creamed corn is also a local specialty.
Well, I suppose this is better than those "hot dishes" made with Cambell's soup. Then again, it's not Chicago either.
