Pot Roast Sandwich – Fenway Park


I have been a fan of the Tampa Bay Rays for years. I actually worked at Tropicana Field for five seasons. Therefore, I have cheered against the Boston Red Sox on countless occasions. The Husband and I planned a trip to Boston for a quick weekend. Neither one of us had ever been there before, but we had both heard great things about the culture, the sports, and of course the food. I walked into Fenway on a Friday night with zero expectations in the food department. I was hoping to run into a lobster roll, and praying that no drunken Sox fans could see into my Rays-loving heart. (Dual purpose fashion side note: I wore “neutral” pink; I wasn’t planning on cheering for either the home team or the visiting Astros, and that pink goes amazingly well with my black Anne Klein boots.)

I walked into Fenway and immediateley, shockingly fell in love. That place is old school baseball done to perfection. We walked up and down the rows of concessions, and I am forever thankful that we took a chance at a no-frills stand that turned out amazing sandwiches.  The Husband went with the Steak and Cheese.  He decided to have it with mushrooms, ketchup, and pickles.  This sandy was a hot, tasty mess.  I almost wore it when we sat down at a wobbly picnic table.

The homerun sandwich of the day was my Pot Roast perfection.  I had never heard of such a thing.  I am apathetic about pot roast in general, but I was intrigued.  I chose provolone for my sandwich glue.  Per the suggestion of my sandwich makers, I went with some mushrooms, lettuce, and tomato.  It was huge, it was messy, it was succulent, it was one of the best sandwiches I have had in a long time.  That pot roast was so tender and flavorful.

We topped it all off with some Fried Dough.  As you all know, calories do not count on vacation.

The Boston Red Sox spanked the Houston Astros 7-3.  I cheered for back to back homers over The Green Monster directly to our right.  I drank a few wicked small beers.  We Floridians survived the 45-degree weather.  Most importantly, I added a new must have sandwich to my All-Time List.

Cheers, Boston, stay Strong.  You are fantastic.

    I had never had the fried dough…so delicious! The vendor definitely had to direct our powdered sugar/cinnamon application process.
