The Roast Beef Po'boy (And How to Make Any Po'boy)
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
12 ingredients
2-4 servings
This version is VERY authentic. I'm talking the neighborhood poboy shops, not the fancy restaurants or the tourist traps in the Quarter. If you've ever been to Johnny's on St Louis in the French Quarter (which is NOT a tourist trap, though tourists and locals a like are always packing the place), this will take you back there babe! Whenever I really get home-sick (even though I was raised in MI, NOLA feels more like home)- I like to make these. The bread is KEY tho, you just can't get the same texture as down there anywhere else- but I try to get as close as possible. You want the bread to be crusty on the outside but soft with just a little tiny bit of chewiness when you bite down into it. The lettuce, pickle, mayo and tomato is what is called "dressed". You may add cheese or hot sauce. It's messy, but SO good!! Cook time does not include time it takes to make/cook roast beef.
