I tell you what though, sometimes that "slow cooking" method seems to me more like a shortcut.
If you go to this place Delasandro's in Roxborough they have a pile of like 30 pounds of meat on the grill.
So when you order your steak you get some of that meat that seems like its been sitting on there for a week.
I kind of like that at Genos they throw raw meat on the grill and cook it for you right then and there. But thats just me.
I live in Manayunk now and everything is fancy smancy. I sure do miss the neighborhood delis in port richmond where I could get a nice turkey hoagie and a fresh jewish pickle straight from the bucket.
