I was taken aback when someone in my life said to me, “A sandwich isn’t dinner.” To clarify, she meant dinner as in the evening meal. So never have I given that any thought about that before, I had to stop and wrap my mind around it. I’ve made sandwiches for dinner a kazillion times. And right then and there I decided I wasn’t going to guilt myself at this late stage of my life. Especially when the sandwiches are these Bistro Steak Subs.
So raise your hand if you’d like a Spiedie, maybe my New York Chicken Spiedies. If these are new to you, Spiedies are chunks of highly marinated meat, in this case, chicken, skewered and grilled to perfection, then served on a fresh, soft roll; it has to be soft, nothing too fancy. And then drizzled with the same garlicky herby vinaigrette it was marinated in, not just because that gives it a double dose of flavor, but because it also kind of melds that gorgeous, juicy grilled chicken and the bun into one cohesive sandwich.
I can’t think when I first got interested in the Philly Roast Pork Sandwiches. I’m pretty sure it was after I made Minnesota Bean Pot Cassoulet Recipe. I used a little of the pork from that recipe for this loosely based interpretation of the famous sandwich, so if you’re from Philly, just look away, now! Since I just put out a post the other day on Braised Pork Roast with Sausage & Cabbage, I thought that Shortcut Philly Roast Pork Sandwiches would be a nice companion recipe. Just in case there’s any roast pork leftover from that meal.
The Superbowl is coming right up! Now that’s a big deal in the U.S. for those reading from far-flung lands and it’s an event. We always had a great football team in my hometown, but I’m just not the fan I used to be. I gotta admit, I’m fan of the food, though, and the Superbowl is an excuse to hang out either in front of the TV or in the kitchen. Since the New England Patriots are playing this year, I’m making the Classic Boston Sausage Pepper Grinders.
This does have an ad, but it is a compilation of the Budweiser Clydesdales.
Does anybody remember way back when I posted a copycat recipe for Panera’s Steak & White Cheddar Panini? I mentioned I already had a “go-to” sandwich, but I followed my friend’s lead and ordered the steak one. My “go-to” was Panera’s Turkey Artichoke Panini. When I was out with my friend I didn’t realize it was no longer on the menu, which is a good thing because I swear I had to grieve alone when I found out.
