"This is a copycat of Primanti Brother's sandwiches - famous in Pittsburgh and oh-so-delicious! You can use any meat - I prefer capicola. Heat the meat in a pan with provolone on top until it's warm ..." See moreand the cheese is melty. Put it on Italian bread (I cut mine in slices to be more authentic), pile on some fries (not thin fries but not as thick as steak fries - homemade are best), then a vinegar-based cole slaw (not mayo-based). I used the Amish Slaw recipe from this site and it works great! Best sandwich ever!!!"
"This is a very basic, 'gist' of a Pittsburgh style sandwich. I live in Pgh, and am a big fan of Primanti's. Vinegar based slaw is a MUST. Also, the fries have to be FRIED, not baked. Don't try to save..." See more calories on this one. Also, fresh, hand sliced italian bread is key. It's nice and soft, so after the sandwich is made, you can press it down and dip it in hot sauce. YUM."
"Yep -- fries & slaw on a sandwich; it's a 'Burgh thing. After a move to the Kansas City area a few years ago, I started missing my Pittsburgh foods and have been making my own Primanti's sandwiches a..." See moret home, which is what this recipe is based on. If you have the time & equipment, I'd recommend making your own fries -- better tasting, IMHO. Secondly, use a vinegar-based slaw/dressing, if you're really going for authenticity. Lastly, you can use any type of meat in this sandwich -- cappicola is one of my favorites, as is steak with a fried egg. Now, if I could only replicate Kennywood cheese fries at home.... =)"
