Salt Pork in Florida?

Just in case you are still looking, Walmart has Salt Pork that is salted. I buy it every 2 weeks.. it is also less expensive than what you will find at Publix

What kind of beef is used for a Steak & Cheese Sub?

thanks! I think I'll try the I said, we can finally get flap for steak tips down here.

Rib Eye just isn't the right thing...I don't care if a Philly Cheese Steak uses it..notice, we don't call them Cheese steaks..nope, Steak & Cheese..and we don't use cheeze wiz! ;0 Rib Eye is just wrong..wrong texture.

I'm a bit confused on the directions, though. If I freeze the flap and then take it out (from freezer to fridge) and refrigerate do I not end up with the same thing I started with..fresh flap meat? Am I partially freezing it and slicing it while it is still partially frozen? And then I refrigerate to thaw? Is that what you mean?

I can't wait to try this

Now, if I could just get some decent Chinese take-out sent down! ;)

What kind of beef is used for a Steak & Cheese Sub?

Sadly, we have moved to Port St Lucie, Florida and there are many, many food favorites that we can not get here. Steak & Cheese Subs just being one of them.

Believe it or not, they use roast in cold deli sliced roast beef that they heat!! The one time I did seem to find a place that didn't use the roast beef, the sub was horrible...inedible.

Oh, there was another place that did use beef, quality raw beef that was then cooked on a grill. But they used shaved Rib Eye much as I love Rib Eye.. not for a Steak and Cheese sub.

If it matters, we used to live in Revere and used to get our Steak and Cheese subs from Dimino's.

Since i don't think we will ever find a place that makes them the right way, I would like to make them at home.

It is bad enough we will never ever have Chinese food again..took 2 years to locate steak tips at the market..can't get a proper hot dog roll, either.
Anyway, am hoping someone can help us... maybe someone who has worked in or owned a sub shop in the Boston area.
