A little taste of the Big Easy

New Orleans style Roast Beef Po'Boy with debris gravy. This was a first attempt and I noted the things to do different next time, none the less the results were right on the mark. I used a recipe which called for a 2 1/2 lb roast, Garlic Cloves, Kosher Salt, Black Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, a Small Onion, Beef Stock, Chicken Stock, Worcestershire Sauce, Tabasco Sauce, Fresh Thyme and Bay Leaf. I cooked it in the dutch oven indirect for several hours and sliced thin. I had to add a little corn starch to the gravy to thicken it up a bit. Served with shredded lettuce on Gambinos Po'Boy Bread (from New Orleans)which I was able to find at our favorite local Cajun restaurant. The taste was exactly what we were looking for. :)

    Looks darned tasty. What is the name of the local cajun restaurant? I've eaten at a place in Pensacola that was great - I believe it was on 9th Avenue??? Red beans and rice were delicious....
  • Yes, Jerry's Cajun restaurant on 9th Ave. Great place :)

    Is that recipe on the internet anywhere? I have 2-1/2 pounds of brisket that I had to cut off to get the whole brisket in my Egg. I was thinking of grinding it for brisket burgers, but that D.O. cook might be just the ticket.

    Dean, just outside the Quarter on Poydras is a sandwich shop called Mothers. If you get a chance you have to go there. My favorite is the Ferdi - out of this world.......I'll be jealous :laugh: Check out their menu

  • Yes, I searched around a bit and found this one. It was the closest to what I was looking for. The left overs are even better than last night. They were good and sloppy just as they should be. Here is the recipe I used and made a few small modifications. I did not use the carrots and I added a little corn starch to the gravy to thicken it up. :)
  • Mothers is good Judy, All home style cooking. :)
  • The recipe called for a chuck roast and I used a rump roast

    I think that would give Domilise's a run for their money. Loks great. Got my mouth watering.
  • By far the best I ever had was from the IGA supermarket in Covington, Louisiana. We used to get them every Saturday after football practice. 8" was more than one person could handle. Mike from Abita probably knows about them.
