Pit Beef Sandwich

I did this post before Bev got home with a camera.

While freezer arranging the other day, I found a nice piece of pit beef – in this case eye of round – that had been smoked to an internal temp of 125, making it a nice medium rare. My thought was I could have a couple of sandwiches from it while Bev was gone, but Daughter, Wende, came by for dinner and I decided to have it. I had some buns, the beef, a big pot of beef broth from my broth making event and I had just seen a Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives show where they made a roast beef Po Boy and claimed it was the best on the planet. So I decided to make gravy from some of the broth, slice the beef thin, and bake them in a 275* oven for a couple of hours or so, which is how the DDD place did it. After the gravy was made it occurred to me that I should have used cajun spices to make it rather than my usual.  Fortunately, Wende had her cell phone to make a shot.

It's hard to beat good smoked beef, cooked in gravy, and a little mayo for a fine sandwich.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.



  1. I'll take that sandwich for breakfast. Looks fabulous Larry! Nice photo for a cell phone shot.

  2. Nothing beats a good beef sandwich!

  3. Any beef sandwich makes a day better.

  4. 3 cheers for that sandwich. I have never heard of "pit beef" before. Could you elaborate on that for me. I love smoking but have mainly stayed with venison. In fact I have done a brisket once and ribs half a dozen times. I do love the look of that sammy.

  5. Hi Larry, Gee---that sandwich looks incredible... Made me hungry... But--I don't have anything quite that good here to munch on... Darn!!!!

  6. Larry, That's one heck of a beautiful sandwich...a meat lover's dream! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  7. This looks delicious - love, love, love roast beef sandwiches. I don't get them very often anymore, but every bite is savored!

  8. Nicely done, Larry. I like the idea of heating the roast up in the gravy. Great idea.

    Still stinks about the camera though. (Tell Bev she should buy you a Nikon D60, lol)


I appreciate and enjoy your comments
