Interesting that they consider the pasty a sandwich. I'd liken it to a stuffed pasta, like ravioli or pierogi.

I've always considered them more of a savory pie, but I could see "sandwich" being a description, although maybe not in the strict sense. Pasties were designed to make food more transportable, so miners could take their lunches down into the mine with them.

Very nice photos, although the chopped pork sandwich from NC should been called a barbecue sandwich and where is the coleslaw? JMHO

I share your HO! I thought the same thing. Since when is coleslaw optional on a Carolina barbecue sandwich??

Pennsylvania has the pork and broccoli rabe sandwich??? Give me a break! The Philly Cheese Steak is iconic and synonymous with Philadelphia and Pennsylvania.

At least they didn't mention Primante's sandwich with french fries and cole slaw...

I said exactly the same thing, Hoot, when I looked at that pulled pork sandwich. Where's the slaw?!
And yes, pork and broccoli rabe is very popular here in PA... NOT! That one must be a Harrisburg thing
That doesn't mean that I wouldn't have liked to dig into a lot of them though

And the Beef on Weck is what that Baltimore pit beef I just cooked reminded me of, but I couldn't think of it. I used to get them at a German men's club in Erie a looooong time ago. It was one of those things bugging me everytime I ate one (which has been every day since Sunday ), so it was nice feeding my memory that tidbit.

IMO those Priamante sandwichs and similar offering are just plain gross!

Everything in them is wonderful, combined into one sandwich they are just disgusting!
