Recipe by Irishcolleen
If you ever visit New Orleans, at some point in time, you must get a good, sloppy roast beef poboy. The difference between a poboy and a submarine sandwich is the bread. Poboys are made on a very light and crusty french bread. I like my bread heated to where the crust is very crispy, yet the inside is soft. That usually takes about 3-4 minutes in a 350 degree oven. The proper way of eating this is to let the gravy drip onto the fries when you take a bite, then eat the fries and gravy. Mmmmmmm!!! :)

yuuuuummy!! So good, I wiped the plate clean with some shoe string fries (though seasoned fries would have been better)! I added some pepper jack cheese-made for a good little addition. Super easy, but doesn't taste like it. Thank you for posting. Picture coming soon...
