Cart de Frisco Sandwich
When I was in college, Cart de Frisco was one of several outdoor food carts parked outside the University of Oregon bookstore. They sold grilled chicken sandwiches, which were sloppy, spicy and very delicious. I think the chicken was marinated and grilled on a stick like a shish kebab. The meat was removed from the stick and smashed onto a grilled bun and topped with coleslaw with an Asian-style dressing on it. It was messy and wonderfully flavorful.
In the food section of last week’s Oregonian they had a recipe which sounded a lot like the Cart de Frisco sandwich, although it called for grilled pork loin rather than chicken. I tried it last weekend and it was very similar. While the recipe might need a bit of tweaking, I’d definitely make it again. And you can, too, if you want. You'll find the recipe at my new blog Kitchen Canvas.
