2 slices thick Italian bread
1/4 pound meat, sliced thin (ham, turkey, pastrami, corned beef, roast beef, leftover meatloaf, bologna - your choice)

2 slices provolone cheese
1/2 cup cole slaw (recipe follows)
2 slices tomatoes
1 cup cooked French fries, still warm

Cole Slaw

1 head green cabbage, shredded
1 onion, sliced thinly
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
6 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons oil
salt and pepper, to taste


Cole Slaw: Combine the shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, and onion in a bowl. Place in refrigerator for at least an hour. You'll need 1/2 cup per sandwich.

In a pot, dissolve the sugar into the vinegar and oil over low heat. Add in salt and pepper and cool. Wait until completely cool before pouring over cabbage mixture, chill in refrigerator for at least an hour.

Sandwich: In a pan, over medium heat, add just enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add sliced meat and heat for about a minute. After flipping, add slices of provolone cheese and cover until melted.

Place your meat and cheese slices on the first piece of Italian bread, then place one cup of fries on top of the meat. Pile on the cole slaw. Then add your sliced, fresh tomatoes. And finally, top it off with the other slice of Italian bread.

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I wanted to eat at the Primanti Brothers when we were in Fort Lauderdale but didn't get there. Found this recipe and tried it. If their sandwich is anything like this I'm definitely hitting the restaurant when we go back. This was to die for! I loved the fries on it. In fact, I'm thinking all my sandwiches from now on need fries on them. Intead of Italian bread though I used big hoagie buns because the store didn't have any fresh italian bread out yet. Worked fine for my purposes (and may have been easier to eat that way.)
