Pittsburgh Eats

As you know I am proud to be from Pittsburgh, PA. I am always sharing my home town’s cuisine like Pittsburgh Steak Pomme FritesPittsburgh Devonshire SandwichThe Other Pittsburgh Sandwich The South Side Slopes, and The Pittsburgh Panini.

When it comes to Pittsburgh cuisine there is nothing like Pittsburgh eats. In fact, Zagat named Pittsburgh as the 2015 top food city in the US.  I know it surprised many people, you would think New York City or San Fransico would be number one, but it isn’t. It is my Pittsburgh that is number one.

Sunday Supper Reginal Specialties

The theme for this week for Sunday Supper, which is being hosted by Sue Lau from A Palatable Pastime, regional specialties. I am showcasing a Pittsburgh specialty, the steak salad. It is the best salads in Pittsburgh!

I know I live in Cleveland right now. I don’t think Cleveland is known for anything food-wise. Besides I am a Pittsburger, not a Clevelander.

Yes, there are Buckeyes. However, that is an Ohio thing, not really Cleveland. Nothing stands out in food that says hey I am from Cleveland. However, if you say fries and coleslaw on a sandwich, you know that is a ‘Burgh thing.

The three rivers and Pittsburgh are simply beautiful. Now you can see why so many movies choose Pittsburgh to film. Plus we have a rich culture and architecture, that you can pick any era and find a building in Pittsburgh that is from that era.

Pittsburgh is very diverse. That is so evident in the nationality rooms cathedral of learning at the University of Pittsburgh. For example, students learn art literature in the Italian room. Pitt invited the city’s ethnic communities to undertake the creation of nationality classrooms, which would enrich the cathedral of learning with their old-world heritage.

Pittsburgh Steak Salad

Pittsburgh is very proud of its different heritages and cultures. It is very evident in our accents and how we talk. Plus it is present in our food.

What makes a Pittsburgh steak salad? Two additions: fries and Ranch dressing. I never knew steak salad did not normally come with fries until I moved to Cleveland.

 

How To Make Steak Salad

I was very surprised when I ordered a steak salad at a restaurant in Cleveland and it was missing those fries. Trust me those fries make the biggest difference when comes to a tasty steak salad.

Steak Salad Pittsburgh Style

That was how I realized there is steak salad and there is steak salad Pittsburgh style. Pittsburgh salad just is better in my opinion and it is those fries! It really makes a steak salad recipe so much better!

Why the Ranch dressing? Honestly, I have no clue other than to tell you it is a ‘Burgh Thing. We love Ranch dressing.

 

Steak Salad

I know a local eatery Eat n Park, they are known for it’ Ranch dressing, besides Smiley Face cookies. A salad isn’t a salad without Ranch dressing. If it isn’t Ranch then it is Italian would be the second dressing of choice for a steak salad.

Once you try good salads, you want it. That is how it is with me. I want the best salads in Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Steak Salad.

When I start to miss home, I like to cook some Pittsburgh originals. This salad is spot on from what I remember. I like to cook my own thick cut fries to put on this wonderful salad. I enjoy your recipes and reading about your take on our wonderful hometown!

Only thing is...shouldn’t it have provolone cheese too? I actually was looking for the recipe to make sure that was the right kind of cheese...Parmesan doesn’t seem like thebonly one because it always had a melted cheese too. I’m a Pittsburgh girl but far from home. We are gonna try this tonight but I think I’m going to get some precooked sliced steak so I hope it still turns out good. I’ll let yinz know:)
