I've been trying to find this recipe for years! Thank you so much for posting...Mom never wrote it down. The only change I made was to use spicy brown mustard instead of yellow. I love it and so does DH. Excellent!
Grew up on this stuff since I am from the coal region! Only thing I do different is more vin and mustard, we like it tangy!
Great sandwich! Made as written and everyone had seconds! The only thing I would change for next time is to decrease the mustard a little; with the tang of the vinegar 1 1/2 tsp mustard was a little too tangy for us. Made for Lets P-A-R-T-Y Tag.
