    After watching Adam Richman on the Food Channel, I decided I would make a heinous sandwich. He was doing some ultimate sandwich show and I was up for a challenge.
    So, here we go.
    I rubbed a very lean boneless country rib slab with onion powder, black pepper and fennel pollen.
    After sitting a couple hours, I grilled it and let it rest.
    I warmed a baguette.
    I made two toppings: 1 with sliced cabbage and creamy italian dressing, one with Paggliachi roasted peppers and mayo.

    I spread the baguette with the roasted pepper mayo spread, piled on the grilled pork. I topped it with sliced cheddar; then the cabbage mix and sliced tomatoes.
    Holy... CARP!
    In the GT tradition, I should have captured this on film, I am sorry.
    I would highly recommend fennel pollen, it is amazing and kicks everything you use it in up a bit. Intense doesn't even describe it.
    Bon appetite and Happy Friday!

    Isn't that what McDonalds uses for a McRib sandwich?

    Sure, only it's not ground, soybeaned and amalgamated.

    I am working on it. I've lived all over the U.S., am well travelled world-wide and am an Executive Chef, mainly due to my palate. Food is life to me and I love to share with my friends.

    I'll bet _no one_ turns down your dinner invites. I have a ski buddy who's a lifelong chef, also well traveled (once served as personal chef for the king of Nepal), has his own restaurant not too far from me, wife and I are going there tomorrow night. We never go out for mundane food--his is always great and unique.

    Let us all know when you publish. :wavey:

    I bought it through a distributor, I think it's D'Allesandro. It's about $30 an ounce, but goes a ways.
    Amazon carries a few from Pollen Ranch that are great too.

    There is no best sandwich, or best soup, or best color or smell or whatever. Speaking of Adam Richman, have you seen some of the sandwiches he eats?

    I like the guy but his tastebuds are out of wack. 83% of everything he shows that is good he puts either coleslaw or sauerkraut all over it. Or both.


    Or fish. Yuck.

    You know it's a blessing and a curse. We love to have folks over and they love the food, but we don't have the reciprocation factor from newer friends.
    We go to peoples houses and hear "it's nothing fancy, but...."
    That sucks, I love food, doesn't have to be fancy. Home cooking is about history, tradition, etc.
    When you learn the story behind the food, it's that much better.

    My guess is that cooking for a professional chef brings out some feelings of inadequacy. "No matter how good a meal I make, he can do it better."

    I have never heard of fennel pollen but I freakin' love fennel seed. I put a lot of it in my spaghetti sauce. I munch down on a couple of seed by themselves ever time I add it to something. :supergrin: I am going to have to try the pollen now.

    I'm guessing Hell is Iowa and Heaven is... Canada?

    Or Hell could be Illinois, which would make Heaven North Dakota... No, that can't be right...:dunno::supergrin:
