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

ENMMc | Jan 9, 2013 01:58 PM

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.
