St. Louis Hot Salami Sandwich

I am sharing a recipe from my home town. Or at least an approximation of it. Since I had never heard of it util I moved away. And now live in Cincinnati. And I wanted to eat one so bad!

But like many things, one must learn to do for one’s self. I did my best to figure it out. And had a long nice chat about it with my local deli guy. I needed to get a solid piece of salami (not thinly sliced). So we approximated how much to cut into one piece.

From there, it gets heated in a slow cooker according to directions given by Goldbelly if you buy one and have it shipped. Ahem, I am NOT paying that much! Oh Lordy, I will do it myself. So I hope you like it. I did!

It’s like a super meaty version of an Italian sub without the ham. Those are just the best! And this is too.

  1. Oh yum!! And I knew I liked you when I first found your blog, now I understand a bit better, I’m from St. Louis too! The Webster Grill, oh how I loved that place in college. Such memories you have just brought me. I live close to Chicago now and I miss the old St. Louis food places so very much, the food in St. Louis is just simply the best. I’ll be visiting over the holidays and will get some Provel cheese to put on this sandwich as I can’t get it up here in any longer as Schnucks stopped getting a lot of the St. Louis products they used to have. Will be giving this a sandwich a try right after my next grocery run! Thanks for all the inspiration!

    • I had been getting provel at Jungle Jim’s market but noticed it had gone missing for awhile now. Hopefully it comes back in stock.
