Toasted Kaiser, slabs of smoked brisket, gravy, collards, our fried potatoes with sausage and onions. Any takers?

    Superb.  Homemade gravy I presume.

        Indeed, if I can't make something from scratch better than out of a can or mix, shame on me. The brisket is wrapped as soon as it's taken from the smoker, I use the pure gelatin it releases as it cools, season it, use cornstarch for thickening. sometimes I do need to thin it with a little beef broth.

          Looks terrific. Can I have mashed potatoes, though? With gravy on them?
          I've never thought of smoked brisket served that way. Great idea!

              This is called food torture, and it should be against the law.

                    Same here with the mash & gravy... I do open face RB sand evrey once in a while, sells out quick.
                    2 slices of texas toast, plenty of mash, 6-7 oz thin sliced roast angus sirloin, lots of gravy from the pan drippings.

                      I normally would like mashed potatoes with butter, but I'd like to try the fried potatoes with sausage and onions.  Never had that before, and it sounds killer.

                        OK, One of you Easterners help me out here.  Is the 'name' for this sandwich, served hot with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy over ALL, "A Manhattan" Sandwich. I am enjoying a memory-fart that tells me this is what a hot beef was called 50 years ago during my time in New England????

                          I don't know about where you were in New England 50 years ago, but where I was in New England 50 years ago it was called a hot roast beef sandwich.
                           
                          Want a weird name for it? Around here they call it a split. I have no idea why.

                              Mc Cutcheon's Cherry Cider, McCutcheon's is a local Jelly, Jam, and anything else that can be bottled vegetable wise, they are terrifically good products, they do hot sauces, marinara, spaghetti  sauces, all kinds of cider, sodas you name it. Google them.

                                    CTF, I'm beginning to think you get some kind of sadistic pleasure out of posting these pictures so those of us not easily within reach of your place have no access. I picture you, after posting, in the grips of a Dr. Evil laugh. Bwah-ha-ha-ha! Bwah-ha-ha-ha!

                                      Michael,
                                       I was on the North Shore of MA..going to school at Salem State and cooking/fry-man at HoJo's on Rt 95 in Rowley,MA. The menu called it a Hot Beef, but lots of the tourists heading North (we were on the Northbound side of I-95) called it a Manhattan. New Yorkers Maybe??? I have never heard that descriptor used anywhere else.

                                              For some reason the term 'Manhattan" also seems vaguely familiar to me so I checked around, and apparently there's some evidence that it originated in or around Indiana (another take on it is here).  Makes me wonder if I've seen it on a menu somewhere during my trips to and from Ohio, or down through Illinois toward St. Louis.

                                                I will have that  with  mashed potatoes  and  2  side orders;   your  fried potaotes  (I love them)  and  your greens!  Do you have any  cheap wine  for me?


                                                Some alter wine I stole from St. Anthony's Church, or some Thunderbird I always carry in my back pocket..."What's the price? 25 twice!"

                                                  OK, One of you Easterners help me out here.  Is the 'name' for this sandwich, served hot with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy over ALL, "A Manhattan" Sandwich. I am enjoying a memory-fart that tells me this is what a hot beef was called 50 years ago during my time in New England????


                                                  For some reason the term 'Manhattan" also seems vaguely familiar to me so I checked around, and apparently there's some evidence that it originated in or around Indiana (another take on it is here).  Makes me wonder if I've seen it on a menu somewhere during my trips to and from Ohio, or down through Illinois toward St. Louis.

                                                  My mother-in-law roasts a standing rib roast on Thanksgiving Eve and hot beef sandwiches made with the leftovers make a great Thanksgiving Day breakfast.

                                                  The smell of a Standing Rib, roasting, ranks about 11 on a 1-10 scale!

                                                    Beef (or pork or turkey) Manhattan was a weekly standby on the high school lunch menu in Columbus IN back in the 60s.Probably the most looked-forward to school lunch item in my town and I suspect in a lot of Southern IN.

                                                      All the diners offered Hot Turkey and Beef open face sandwiches. I used to offer a Carved Roast beef dinner and changed to the Hot beef sandwich, it sells real well......For $5 it should sell well..................

                                                          Been called Manhattans in Indiana for as long as I can remember. Also seem to recall some places in Washington (up around Bremerton) calling them that.
