  • Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Cut the potatoes into 1/4-inch thick fries, and fry until they float and are golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Set the fries aside.

  • Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C).

  • Place the bread on a baking sheet, and toast to a light brown in the preheated oven, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove half the bread slices. Place 1/4 of the pastrami on the remaining 4 bread slices, and top with provolone cheese. Return to the oven until the pastrami is hot and the cheese is melted, about 5 more minutes.

  • To assemble, top the melted cheese of each sandwich with French fries, cole slaw, 2 tomato slices, and the top pieces of bread.

Cook's Note

I make them one sandwich at a time because I only cook for myself...I place the bread on the baking sheet as well, so it is partially toasted. Also, onions are optional.

Editor's Note

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
