My blogging friend Danno has two blogs (Cook's Journal and New Orleans Cuisine) and a website (NOLA Cuisine). At NOLA Cuisine, you can find all kinds of wonderful recipes like the one pictured above.
The sandwich is a Roast Beef Po'boy with Debris Gravy. Debris gravy is gravy made out of the scrumptious little bits of meat and gravy at the bottom of your roasting pan. Regarding the desired tenderness of the meat for the sandwich, Danno says: the object is for the meat to just fall apart…not by breathing on it, that would still be too tough, but by just looking at it. About a 10 second stare should do the trick.
If you don't want to make your own and you happen to be in New Orleans or are planning a trip to New Orleans, Mother's Restaurant at 401 Poydras is famous for their debris sandwiches.
I also found out from Danno that there is a website you can check out to find out which restaurants in New Orleans are re-opening and when.
