A BBQ Joint Is Putting Tons Of Creative Twists On The Meatball Sub


To call this sandwich just a “meatball sub” would be an understatement. There’s so much different going on inside, from the meatballs to the sauce, that it takes your brain through more twists than a M. Night Shyamalan movie.

You can find this unique Smoked SPAM®️ Meatball Sandwich at Meat Up BBQ, a joint dedicated to smoked meats in Placentia, CA. It contains all of the components of your standard meatball sub: meatballs, tomato, sauce, and mozzarella. However, each ingredient gets an insane spin on its head to make the sandwich a whole new eating experience.

For starters, the meatballs aren’t made with ground beef, but instead contain both smoked brisket and SPAM®️ Classic for a combined smoky, savory flavor. Crispy mozzarella sticks top the sandwich in lieu of melting cheese over it. The “marinara” sauce uses tomatillos as a base, adding an acidic tang to the sandwich. And for those looking for a hit of tomato, it gets tossed with cilantro and served up as a garnish to the meaty marvel.

Each tweak of the sandwich’s ingredients creates an overall flavor that’s a far cry from the standard meatball sub. Meat Up’s version is a unique balance of freshness, smokiness, and heartiness that you have to taste to fully comprehend.

You can order the Smoked SPAM®️ Meatball Sandwich at Meat Up BBQ for the entire month of August as part of SPAM®️ Restaurant Month.

7-Eleven Testing Deep-Fried Doritos Stuffed with Melted Nacho Cheese

Anyone who’s ever enjoyed a decent (or hell, even half-decent) crispy, melty mozzarella stick has seen the face of God. Keep your fancy bries and panko breading; no amount of frou-frou ingredients could possibly improve on mozzarella sticks’ pure and utter perfection.

Except, okay, maybe Doritos.

 

The internet woke today to news of a new test product spotted at 7-Elevens in Washington D.C. called “Doritos Loaded.” ‘Net-designated vanguard Kevin Cobb, who tweeted a photo of the snacks as early as January 28th, described them as “nacho cheese Doritos dipped in queso.” A subsequent taste test by Junk Food Guy found the deep-fried triangles to be “almost too crispy. Like, sitting-under-a-heart-lamp-for-too-long crispy.” We ourselves will wait patiently for Dude Foods to teach us how to make our own.

Spokespersons for 7-Eleven have told news sources the product is currently just in its test phases, and it’s too early to discuss it publicly.

It’s not, however, too early for the rest of us to gawk. Spotted some at your local 7-Eleven? Send us your pics @foodbeast or info@foodbeast.com!
