Hey All,
Greetings from Halifax, NS, Canada. Gotta say I'm loving your Steelers. I'm a Packers fan, but the Steelers are the team I root for in the AFC.

I was wondering if some proper Pittsburgh-dwellers could give me some ideas about what kind of food Pittsburgh is famous for or really loves.

Every year at our SUper Bowl party we do a main course and a dessert that hails from each of the cities of the two super bowl teams (last year it was New England Clam Chowder and Boston Cream Pie for the Pats and Philly Cheesesteak Hogies and Cheesecake for the Eagles).

This year, I have no idea what passes for the favourite foods of the two cities playing in the big game.

I have heard about the Roethlis-burger, but I'm not sure what exactly makes them any different from any other burger.

Are there better dishes that typify a favourite Pittsburgh nosh? If so, do you have recipe ideas?

What about desserts?

I want to do the Steelers proper at our party. You guys are awesome football fans, and I think you have one of the best run teams in all of football. I can't say how much I dig Hines Ward, Jerome Bettis, Polamalu and Big Ben- it's easy to root for your team.

Any help you can offer would be awesome- can't wait to hear what you guys suggest for quality, authentic Pittsburgh eats for the SB party.

Go steelers!

I don't know if you can find a recipe on line for Perogies, but you could make them or you could buy Perogies. You could have Kielbasa and Perogies. (or as my mother-in-law calls them Kolbassa). I make homemade perogies, they are labor intensive and you need help. They are sort of like potatoe and cheese filled ravoli. You cant put em in butter and onions or the way I make mine, is with sourcream and butter. God! It makes me so homesick. I'm from Perryopolis, Pennsylvania and that's what I've made for my Superbowl parties. I so wish I was home in PA. Good luck, I hope it helps. Thank you for your support for the black and gold.

Here's a recipe for Ham Barbeques ; First you'll need some Chipped Ham, you should be able to get it at your local deli. It will be the sliced ham,boiled ,or baked even but it HAS to be sliced paper thin. Next get a bottle of Ketchup, preferably Heinz, and you'll need some relish and brown sugar.
Basically: 1 lb. chipped ham, very thin cut, thin as possible
1 bottle Heinz Ketchup
2 tablespoons Relish(hot dog), maybe a little more to taste.
2 tablespoons Brown sugar

Pull apart the ham and put into a pot,add rest of ingredients and heat. Serve on hamburger buns. Put on a slice of cheese if you like.yield about 10 sandwiches depending on size and type of buns.
If your having alot of people for your party, put it all in a Crock Pot and heat through!!
Nice and easy also tasty. Enjoy!!! :yummy: :yummy:

Can anybody fill me in on the details of the Roethlisburger and what makes it unique?

Is the Ham BBQ actually good? I have never heard of that before...

To quote Campbell's "H'mm H'mm Good"

Also the most popular roethlisburger is something like this:
1/2 pound burger
1/2 pounder Italian sausage
2 scrambled eggs
fried onions and peppers
2 slices American cheese
all for $7.77 at Pepi's in the Strip

It isn't really a well known Pittsburgh food, per say. Mostly a recent marketing gimmick.

You could try to make a Primanti's style sandwich. They use Mancini's bread (pittsburgh bakery) and fresh cut potato fries. Plus top of the line meats.

Check out http://www.primantibros.com

This is the Pittsburgh equivalent of the cheese steak from Philly.

(Interesting note from my buddy who grew up in Philly but moved to Pittsburgh...he said whenever you hear the phrase "Philly cheese steak" it usually isn't and that only a handful of shops in Philly can make an actual cheese steak, Philly style.)

Thanks for the 411 on the roethlisburger y'all. What kind of bread do you serve it on- is it in a wrap (sounds like it's loose instead of formed into a patty) or a sub bun or a regular burger bun?

Any ideas for dessert?

then if you're lucky the digestive process allows you to dispose of them in rectangular patties.:bouncy:

I wanted to ask about sausage and kielbasa.

Some towns have a particular sausage they're particular to. Is there a truly Pittsburghian sausage or something unique about Pittsburgh kielbasa?

A shot of Crown Royal, JD, or something with a beer chaser. You're gonna need to get that buzz back after you eat...(lol).

Go w/something simple for dessert. Nobody wants a lot of fuss. Cheesecake or a Steelers' cake decorated in Black 'n Gold!

The only place I go to is Ricci's in McKees Rocks for Italian sausage.
