Beef & Whiz

Happy Which Wich Wednesday! Today, Aby and I explored "Category 3: Beef" and chose the Beef & Whiz 'wich.

This particular sandwich was an adventure---and a TOTAL first-hand-try experiment for Aby---and this is how it all turned out...It should be noted, that neither one of us had ever had Cheez Whiz. EVER. All I could say about this condiment/processed cheese item was that it was soft and, for lack of a better word at the moment, liquid-y (I wish this was Abyspeak, but alas, I am temporarily vocabulary-impaired).

Allow us to present....BEEF & WHIZ IN DA HOUUUUUUSEEEEEE!!!

Aby's try on the Beef & Whiz (such a catchy name!)

Beef & Whiz in 5 Senses

See: Today, the pictures of this particular 'wich look tastily AMAZING---this time I used the flash! Enjoy the pictures!

Behold: beautiful sandwich wrapped in aluminum.
Yummy yumyummmmm, do you see the Cheez Whiz seeping out of the wrapping?
This is a beautiful sandwich---and I don't even eat meat!
The cross-section picture really lets the Cheez Whiz shine.
Smell: "{in Abyspeak} CHEESY AND SPICY!" The Cheez Whiz immediately takes its place in this sandwich as the predominant ingredient, and with the added jalapeno, the blend was a perfect blend of spicy cheesy aroma.

Feel: {Abyspeak again, before taking the first bite} "I think I'm gonna like this one. Surprisingly not juicy, kind of dry."---This was Aby's first time eating roast beef in a sandwich, and she realized, that compared with other deli meats (i.e. turkey and chicken), roast beef is a lot drier. Would that be a good or bad thing for Aby's taste? We would shortly find out...

Taste: The first (big) bite lol. {Abyspeak:} "Hmmmmmmmm, it IS good. Pica---(please note: pica is Spanish for 'it's spicy'---if you can make that into a verb?)---for my first time having Cheez Whiz, I must unfortunately admit that I'm not a big fan of it." It was with Aby's first taste of Cheez Whiz that we found out that it is not so much "liquid-y" as it was melt-y. The cheese taste prevailed throughout the sandwich; had it not been for the jalapeno complement, Aby might not have appreciated the Beef & Whiz as much. With regards to the caramelized onions, they were surprisingly submissive to the all-powerful Cheez-Whiz---{Abyspeak:} "No oniony taste!"---that's not necessarily a bad thing... ;)

Hear: This sandwich, almost like last week's "The Cuban," was a very soft sandwich. The ingredients Aby chose (olive salad, jalapenos, bell peppers) are not as crunchy as lettuce and cucumbers (for example), so every bite Aby took was pleasantly soft-spoken; every bite was a gentle whisper of blended tastes and aromas. Mmmmmmmm.

When it comes right to it, the Beef & Whiz is perfect for you sandwich lovers who looooove roast beef. As for Aby, she realized that she doesn't particularly fancy this deli meat, mainly because it's relatively dry when compared to other meats.

The usual question: does the Beef & Whiz beat the BBP? It was a tough decision to make, because we love Which wich sandwiches, but in the end of this Battle of the Wiches, Black Bean Patty is victorious (go #teamBBP).

It turns out, by the way, that Cheez Whiz is traditionally used in authentic Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches...perhaps this meat choice is juicier and more favorable to Aby? We'll have to try that out on our own time!


Final Rating? 3 out 5 wiches---{in Abyspeak} "It was not quite my cup of 'wich!" I think we just need to change the ingredients up a bit, we shall see in the future :)
