My brother-in-law used to work at a certain sub shop – so he knew how they make one of their most famous subs…and he passed the secret on to us – now I’m going to share it with you.
Here’s the list of ingredients, but don’t go by their description of how to cook it (it’s all wrong).
Put your cut up ham and some butter in a large frying pan. Fry up the ham, allowing it to brown up a bit. Then add your pineapple and a goodly bit of the juice (we use fresh pineapple rather than the canned stuff). Allow that to simmer and the pineapple juice to cook down (this step is the key to an awesome sub). Then top it with your favorite cheese (we use colby-jack) and allow that to melt… Then scoop onto a sub bun.
I like to dash the bun with a little bit of mayo and some Big John’s Steak-n-Onion red sauce. There’s nothing better after a day on the bike than a couple of these bad boys.
If you don’t have a local Big John’s and can’t find the sauce, I found this recipe (though I can’t vouch for its veracity).
