Day #63, #30 Roast Beef

Similar to the last post, this sandwich also does not have an interesting name or history behind it, it's simply known as the #30 Roast Beef.

I've never actually had deli roast beef before, and I was in for a surprise. The only kind of roast beef I have ever tried was the roast beef from Arby's. Although I eat very little red meat, I love Arby's roast beef sandwiches. Our roast beef was different than that though, and I was told that it was due to our's being a "quality roast beef". It's actually a USDA choice grade meat. There are 8 grades of USDA meat: Prime, Choice, Select, Standard, Commercial, Utility, Cutter and Canner.

This sandwich is made with rare roast beef, Vermont cheddar cheese, lettuce, red onion, tomato, and mayo on fresh (un-grilled) Italian rustin bread. This might be the first time that I have tried our rustic bread un-grilled, and it was very good. It was soft, and went very well with the roast beef on this sandwich.

The #30 is a simple and easy choice for those that like roast beef. I thought it to be different than what I am used to, yet surprisingly good.
