SHORT RIB GRILLED CHEESE | The MOST IMPORTANT SANDWICH of my life

The short rib grilled cheese...This may be the most important sandwich of my life. Created by my brother, Dave, the uniqueness of this sandwich stopped people in their tracks (along with generous samples of Brussels sprouts, also my brother's creation) and helped attract people to the cart…they talked about it, it pulled people in. Because of this sandwich, and the rest of that menu and the loyalty we formed because of it, it allowed me to have confidence that I could build something cool that people liked and inspired this journey in food I’ve been on for about 10 years now. Learn the story, and the method, behind the sandwich I will never forget.

This is the best sandwich I have ever had in my lift. It is so decadent and just feels so good to eat. It give you all the feels. We dont live in a city that always has watercress fresh ( not expired ) available so we substituted arugula and we did not add the onions. I cant wait to make the short ribs this week for my brother and his family and have left overs to make this grilled cheese again. I am looking forward to trying this on my brothers homemade sour dough bread! mmm!

We also shredded our cheese for better melting.
