A steak bomb is a sandwich in the cheese steak family only different. I'm not sure if this is a regional item or not.

The steak is cooked, usually with onions, sometimes with green peppers and/or mushrooms too. Near the end of the cooking process, the steak is topped with slices of Genoa salami and provolone cheese and allowed to warm up and start melting. Then the whole thing is scooped into a sub roll and served. The combination of the melting cheese and heated salami juices flowing into the meat makes this sandwich a real treat.

There are some sub shops here in New England that are pretty creative with the cheese steak genre.

One shop did the steak with mushrooms, pepper and onions, Italian sausage, pepperoni, salami, cheese and topped it all off with some tomato sauce. Fan-dam-tastic.

Maybe a little cayenne tonight, but not so much as to hide the flavor from the beer. So many chickens running around in my head. :D
If you start counting them, will it make you sleepy?

When I make it I drink the beer and just put water in the can. I rub the chicken with a cut lemon and stuff the lemon shells into the cavity before setting it on the can. Then just a little salt and pepper.

I'm either making chicken enchiladas with tomatillo sauce, or just chicken soft tacos with tomatillo sauce. I've got two things left over from last night. Can you guess what they are?

Pizza night here too. We have a friend visiting and she's never had pizza cooked on the grill so I'm making the BBQ Chicken & Bacon pizza.
