We were discussing some sandwich ideas and one thing led to another, and the other was a New Orleans sandwich Judy is fond of, a Ferdi from Mothers Restaurant. I've never had it before but it sure sounds good. To make it we first have to roast some beef for it, and after a little research we decided on Eye of Round after we hit on an old post by Chris at Dizzy Pig. He used Cow Lick, so we figured we would too. Only we were out of Cow Lick and had to go to Ace Hardware in The Woodlands (TX) to get some. Naturally, we bought a bunch of other stuff and talked to a couple of people who were sniffing around the Big Green Egg display area. We already had the beef eye but will need to do some turkey tomorrow. Back home, I lit Lily Large to focus on 300°. Then I went back inside to prep the meat and let it percolate a bit. All I did was generously apply a good coat of Dizzy Pig Cow Lick to all sides and ends, cover it with wrap and let it work. I was in no rush so I let Lily Large take her time to stabilize while Judy and I did some Coop-Keeping. It's amazing what a little organizing can do. We now have room left over for new stuff. But 'Miss Organizer' has everything in it's place and there's a place for everything. Sometime later I put the meat on and let it come back up to temperature before leaving it alone. I was using an indirect setup at about 325°. Finally, the Thermopen told me it was time to change the Egg over to a direct setup to sear all sides of the meat. That's what Chris said do. That done, I took it off, (cut a small end piece off for quality control purposes) and wrapped it in foil to chill in the frig overnight. Someone suggested that it slices better chilled. Sounds reasonable and we weren't hungry anyway.
Today, we sliced it thin and added it to the pan of gravy to soak up some really nice flavor.
The meat and gravy was so good that you could eat it on a sub roll or hoagie roll with just the meat and gravy and be very happy. Some thin sliced onions just adds to the already nice flavor. The hamburger dill pickles also added a nice touch, as did the tomato. We like mayo our all our sandwiches so we added a goodly amount of it. I suppose you could just keep going with it but simple is always good.
Try it, I think you will like it.
