One of the staples of Pittsburgh for a foodie is the Primanti Brothers. If you ever visit the Pittsburgh area it is a must try. They make the most incredible Panini's.
I made this for my husband Sunday. He was speechless (the first time ever). He loved it. He loved it so much he called me this morning at 7:30 (DID I SAY AM?)to tell me that he can't get the incredible sandwich out of his head and he will be stopping by ASAP for another panini. Of course, I made him another one......That is what wives do? Right?
Anyway. this is a 10! (Rated by the hubby. This is very rare rating. I think, he is a little stingy on the tens or expects to much. LOL)
ARE You READY!? ONCE YOU TRY THIS...YOU WILL NEVER EVER WANT A NORMAL PANINI.
My Pittsburgh Roast Beef Panini:
4lbs Lean Roast
1/4 cp. Montreal Steak Seasoning
4-6 cps Beef Broth
3/4 cp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 Red Onion quartered
4 garlic cloves minced
1. Rub the seasoning all over the beef and then sear all sides. Add the broth, onions, garlic, Worcestershire to the pan.
2. Cook 275 for 3-4 hours.
3. Slice Very thin, against the grain. (I used the slicing on my food processor)
4. Add back into the broth. (This meat tastes even better the next day after sitting in this amazing broth)
Coleslaw (Pre-made package, very thinly cut cabbage)
1/4 cp. Zinfandel Vinegar
2 TB oil
2 TB Sugar
1. Toss everything together and set aside
Fries or Homemade Fries (I cooked 1/2 bag. I makes 2-3 sandwich's)
(Follow directions. I cook them until they are really crunchy)
Provolone Cheese (1/2 lb)
Really Really good bread, I used a Three Cheese from Panera Bread
Lay out the two slices of bread. Top the bottom with the a few slices of Provolone cheese, Add the Roast Beef, Add more cheese, Add fries, Add the slaw and then the tomato top with the second slice of bread. Slice in half. I secured with toothpicks.
Take A HUGE BIT of the amazing taste of Pittsburgh! YUM!
