Spanish term or phrase: Libritos lomo de cerdo
Can anyone please help me with this terminology.
It is a list of food products available in Spain and they are being
translated for tourists information. I am afraid I have no more
context other than the name of the product.

Thank you for your help

agree  Andy Watkinson: Sounds a bit Fanny Cradock, but yes.... (pass me the brandy, Johnny)
4 hrs
  -> :-) Thanks, Andy!
agree  Charles Davis: But note that virtually all these photos show what they look like when you've stuffed them. As a product to buy they're just "butteflied" slices of pork loin.

  -> I admit I'd never heard of 'butterflied'. 'Libritos' are two thin pork fillets, sandwiched together, filled with ham and cheese, covered in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. I've always referred to them as [type of meat] cordon bleu. Thanks, Charles :-)
