    Timothy J Higgins Eva's Note:

    Nola Cuisine did the groundwork here by deconstructing the sandwich from an episode of Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives where he featured Parasol’s and their signature sandwich. This is as about as close as you can get to the real thing so enjoy. But if you ever do find yourself in the Big Easy, make sure to plan a visit to Parasols and pay homage to the King of Po’ Boys. For the uninitiated a Po’ Boy is a traditional Louisiana sandwich, somewhat like a sub sandwich. But what makes it so different from a regular sub, grinder, hero, hoagie, wedge, zep, torpedo, bocadillo or roll? The bread. Some may argue but Po’ Boys must be made with fresh baked French bread. This alone separates this sandwich from the also ran’s.

    1. 1
      1. Trim the beef of any excess fat and cut into large chunks. Place the beef into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 1 hour or so. Remove the meat and place it into the fridge, reserving the broth.
    2. 2
      2. In a separate pot, bring 4 cups of the broth to a boil. Whisk in the flour a little bit at a time until well blended and no lumps remain. Next whisk in the garlic powder, salt, pepper, oil and Kitchen Bouquet until well blended. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook the gravy for about 20 minutes. Add more salt, and pepper if necessary.
    3. 3
      3. Preheat the oven to 350°F Slice the cold beef into very very thin slices and against the grain if you can. Place the beef slices in a baking pan and cover with the gravy. Cook for 30 to 45 minutes or until the beef is so tender it just falls apart. Keep the oven on.
    4. 4
      4. To make the Po’ Boys, line both side of the bread with mayonnaise and Creole mustard. Then pile on the beef / gravy mixture, then the lettuce, then the tomatoes (maybe a little salt and pepper) Flip the top piece of the bread on and put the whole thing into the oven for just a couple of minutes or until the bread is a bit crispy and toasty.
