Venezuelan Pepito Sandwich - Pepito Venezolano

Venezuelan Pepito Sandwich - Pepito Venezolano created by threeovens

The pepito is a Venezuelan street food favorite: a beef (or chicken) sandwich, drenched with sauces and condiments. The beef is seasoned with worcestershire sauce (salsa negra) and garlic. The bread is a large soft hoagie-like roll, and the condiments typically include lettuce, tomato, carrots, cabbage, and many sauces, such as guasacaca (an avocado relish, which I have posted a recipe for), BBQ sauce, ketchup, mayo, mustard, etc... The whole thing is topped off with crispy potato sticks. Unfortunately, this site would not allow me to post all of these options in the ingredient list, but please choose from these suggestions! When you buy a pepito from a street vendor, there are usually many sauces to choose from and you can customize your order.

    We thought this was great even though we did not load it up with lots and lots of toppings.
