The finished dish is much more appealing than the name that's been hung
on it. One of the detailed instructions in the recipe was to sprinkle 2 teaspoons (t.) of salt over the melted shortening. Even though it was recommended to follow the recipe closely, I didn't. I used 1 t. of salt. If I had followed directions the dish would most likely have been a ten. With my stubborn mess up I gave it an eight. All of. the other directions were followed, right down to using a cast iron pan.
*Use a cast iron pan
*Steam the bread
*Eat the sandwich with mustard and dill pickles
* Cook out all of the liquid
Here's the results in pictures.
|Browning the meat and onions.|
|Adding the 'secret' ingredients. Mustard, sugar, vinegar.|
|Layering the roll with mustard and home made dill pickles.|
|The finished dish. If there was an additional picture,|
it would be of an empty dish!
