Yep -- fries & slaw on a sandwich; it's a 'Burgh thing. After a move to the Kansas City area a few years ago, I started missing my Pittsburgh foods and have been making my own Primanti's sandwiches at home, which is what this recipe is based on. If you have the time & equipment, I'd recommend making your own fries -- better tasting, IMHO. Secondly, use a vinegar-based slaw/dressing, if you're really going for authenticity. Lastly, you can use any type of meat in this sandwich -- cappicola is one of my favorites, as is steak with a fried egg. Now, if I could only replicate Kennywood cheese fries at home.... =)
