Binging with Babish: Teamster Sandwich from 30 Rock

You haven’t heard of sandwich day? It’s one special day each year that the teamsters gleefully hand out roast beef, fresh mozzarella, and roast red pepper sandwiches with special dipping sauce from their secret Brooklyn deli. Now, thanks to a single thirdhand source on the internet, that secret deli has been revealed as Fiore’s House of Quality in Hoboken, NJ. This week, let’s take a crack at bringing some of those generations-old Italian secrets into our kitchen.

  • Babish, you don't actually buy those super overpriced little jars of spices, do you? You must have a better option than those, right?

  • As someone who's half Italian with a Sicilian grandfather, you speak the truth. NEVER, skimp on the garlic. Ever.

  • I live near fiores, and I can confirm, that reaction is absolutely justified.

  • Better than Josh Weissman's $500 french dip. This is perfect

  • What really gets me is like… is that guy who is talking possessed of such an empty life that this sandwich day is really the best day of the year?

  • Have you made the Spanglish sandwich yet?? 🧐

    SAS 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • Can't believe you didn't add the meat juices after resting to the gravy. It's one of the most important parts of gravy making after any roast.

  • Bravo 👏

    Marc Norman Mitchell 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • I got a dumb question-Why is the shop "rumored" to be in Hoboken when Frank says it's in Brooklyn at the beginning?

  • I have a few sandwich shops in Philly another secret is to immediately wrap the sandwich up so that it steams/ slightly softens the bun!

  • It's defontes in brooklyn not fiores in hoboken 😂 🤦🏽‍♂️

    Alecchan 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • I wonder if this episode could be remade (by Babish) with home made roasted red peppers and home made cheese… that, or maybe compare 2-3 similar sandwiches?

    Audience4u 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • And now I need a sandwich. 🤤

    Troy Carr 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • I made this. Absolutely amazing! I planned on eating half for dinner so I wrapped it tightly in parchment paper. It was even better because it didn't fall apart as much. 10/10

  • It's actually defontes in Red Hook, Brooklyn

  • I would love to see you tackle the Stupendous Stew from Mario Odyssey. Only your shining brilliance could recreate such a creamy abundance of meat and veggies so zealously guarded by such a big a$$ insane bird, and so preciously treasured by the squeaky fork people of Luncheon Kingdom.

    Jennifer Ellison 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • Now I'm hungry…

    Tim85 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • Why use Maldon salt in something where it’s going to dissolve. Is it’s saltiness different than actual sea salt? I guess I should go try and find out.

    sharpshot17s 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • So this is where Liz’s sandwich went.

    GalvaGames 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • Roast beef with peppers and mozzarella? Dude just make an Italian Beef already and stop shortchanging the Second City's food.

    Kevin B 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • As a roast beef fanatic, I'm convinced this has to be the best sandwich I've never tasted.

    Dan Miller 18/10/2022 am2:31
  • I think Babish is the King bc he gives you a meal to peep and a show to suss haha
