Foodie Dirty SecretNovember 29, 2010
Do you know what this is? I mean, aside from a crappy iPhone photo?
It’s a Foodie Dirty Secret.
It’s something I’d never post a “recipe” for. Something a Foodie wouldn’t be caught dead eating. It’s void of nutritional value, it’s pre-made, processed food, and it is dayum good. It’s a classic of my childhood – one of those quick, easy-to-throw-together meals that our Moms fell back on when their day at work was really hard and they couldn’t face putting a more elaborate meal on the table.
And what is this classic, you may ask?
It’s a Steak-umm sandwich. It’s two of those brittle slabs of meat, pan-fried in a little butter, topped with a single slice of Provolone, and then put on two slices of super-soft white bread (no whole grains, thankyouverymuch) slathered with Kraft Mayo (no substitutions allowed) and sprinkled liberally with salt and pepper. Utz chips (again, no substitutions allowed) on the side.
It’s greasy. It’s gooey with melted cheese. It lacks any drop of wholesomeness, and I love it.
