Peameal on a bun Thu, 10/17/13 5:16 PM (permalink)
I 'd like to hear from anyone who has served this up at their stand and any
suggestions they may have regarding toppings etc. Starting in the spring I'm opening
a sausage stand and part of my target group are early morning fisherman.  I'm hoping
coffee and a good ole peameal sandwich might be the ticket.  Any suggestions welcomed!

      It's what we call Canadian Bacon.

        Peameal Bacon is made from boneless pork loin - it's a lean piece of meat.  It is then pickled cured and rolled in a golden cornmeal coating. You can slice it and BBQ it or fry it up - you can even roast the whole thing.  It is quite popular and traditional in Canada especially for
        breakfast.

                  That is a typical Breaded Pork Tenderloin sandwich here in the midwest US.

                    I'm sorry wetfootwilly   .... may be some of our more northern Roadfood members can help.   I just never heard of 'peameal'   and I couldn't help it after you described it.   I think 'peameal' might be a little more regional type of food.    ... Good Luck  with your cart ...

                      Also can be called english bacon, some think its just ham in a different shape.  Depending on how much fat you leave on the cured slices, it can be almost like a ham sandwich.  We make a traditional which is just cured and coated with pea meal, but the most popular is a hot smoked version, with no peameal, closer to english bacon than canadian bacon.  The fattier loin cuts are best fried, but as its fully cooked, the smoked version makes a nice cold sandwich also.  Also smoking gives you that streaky bacon taste, without so much fat.  There's a lot of ways to call this cut, but all are cured.  I know some of our customers use it for english bacon sandwiches rather than streaky bacon.

                          Some of our 'Soul Food' places does a Smoked Pork chop sandwich.    It is usual brined (pickled to some); then lightly smoke; and grille before serving.

                            ... the smoked chop or loin
                            ... the sandwich ...  the only thing missing is the peameal (cornmeal) coating.

                            Pork loin chop, bone in, or out, cured and perhaps smoked in German is Kasseler.  We sell them as country pork chops here also.  Great on a bed of sauerkraut and braised in the oven, with some spaetzle and hot german mustard on the side.

                                Isn't Bhopal the place where the chemical plant exploded back in the mid-80's, killing 1,000+ residents?  Hardly a tourist destination, regardless of the quality of their hotels.
