For all of you challenge lovers, Nebraska Brewing Company has a new one just for you. As I sat at work yesterday, I kept thinking of all the good times that the Death Pizza brought to me. The best part of my day was watching challenger after challenger try to eat the monster pizza. All falling short of the prize. As the reputation of the pizza got around, the challengers became less and less. I guess this one will stand for a long time. But I missed the excitement of the challenges. So I thought about making a new one. The pizza is a great challenge and will still be available, but I needed one that will appeal to people who may not love the heat of the pizza. So the Trippple Threat was born.
The start of this one came from my days as the chef at The Bleu Ox in Council Bluffs. I would spend at least two hours a day, cutting, tenderizing, and breading pork tenderloin. Not just any tenderloin either. These monsters were the size of a dinner plate. So I decided to make this the base of the Trippple Threat. Then I started to think of what this mighty sandwich might need to make it live up to its name. So we decided to make a bacon blanket for our sandwich. What is a bacon blanket you may ask? Well, we take 12 slices of bacon and weave them into a tasty bacon blanked that will cover the mighty tenderloin. Now I have two of my 3 P’s for this sandwich. The third, two pork sausages, spit in two and layered atop the bacon. Yea, that’s right, an 8 oz fried pork tenderloin, 12 piece bacon blanket, and two monster sausages. But did we stop there, HELL NO!!! That would be enough to make a grown man cry, but as a fat man myself, it needed more. So, to stick with the Trippple Threat theme, I topped the meat portion of the sandwich with 3 fried eggs. But as I looked at this great creation, I still wanted more, and what goes better with pork and eggs?? CHEESE!! So of course, three slices of three kinds of cheese. YES, nine slices of cheese. And now I had it, the wonder that would become the Trippple Threat. The sandwich had been created, but who can have a sandwich without fries?? Not me. So a pound of fries are added to the side. Oh yea, there is a focaccia bun trying to hold this beast together, kinda an after thought!!
The rules for this one will be a little different from the pizza.
-You have one hour to eat the pizza
-You can drink whatever you like
-You CAN add any condiment to the sandwich you would like
-This one will cost $20, and if you can defeat it, you will get a Trippple Threat T-Shirt, your picture taken, and put on the wall of fame.
-Losers go to the wall of shame!!
-We encourage bringing a group to cheer you one.
I will keep everyone updated on when we will start this challenge. I am thinking sometime within the next 3 weeks. When I get back to the lab, I will get all the details figured out, get the shirts made, and get ready for the challengers. Hope to see you all soon to try our new adventure. I look forward to many people defeating this beast and winning themself a place on the wall of fame.
