I just had some Thanksgiving leftovers, but this made me hungry again! Love the channel BTW, especially the nasty canned “foods”.

No provolone cheese? Add the cheese and then put it under the broiler for about 4 minutes. Yumoooo

I wish I could try the 500 no peek method, but my gas oven has too many vents. It doesn’t hold in the heat.

Leslie Danyella says:

As a Chicagoan I must say you did pretty good. I like to put a slice of american cheese on the bread then dip it, then add the meat, and dip it again. But nice job

That sandwich look absolutely delicious…however I have one suggestion, can you please put up the ingredients that you used? For example you there in that thick dark sauce into the pan…I couldn’t really comprehend your accent…so can you please write up what it is? For all ingredients…it will help a lot, thank you:-) 
I totally enjoyed your videos…and l don’t usually like cooking videos that easily but yours really something…that got me into it..but as a girl…you CAN cook good, better than me.  Well done. With Luv, from Australia.

Rivet Gardener says:

Beautiful sammy, wow, and excellent tutorial! And there you go with my favourite knife in your kitchen~ love that tool 🙂 perfect slices. Oh man, I need a sammy like that right now! Thanks for sharing, you are outdoing yourself with this one, Larry. Wonderful, just wonderful!

Anonymoose says:

LOL! My first thought was, “When I bite into that, it’s going to go all down my front.” Solution: take it out in the back yard and eat it nekkid.

You remind me – I asked about that knife a while back and was gonna get one, and got sidetracked and forgot about it. At least I bookmarked it. I love the way it slices!
