San Francesco's Hot Peppers

LeTimmy Jun 21, 2007 03:42 PM

I thought about making my own veal sandwich and was wondering if anyone knew what kind of peppers San Francesco's uses. Mustachio's used raw jalapenos last time I was there and personally didn't enjoy it. San Fran's are nice and soft. Is it possible they are just roasted jalapeno's?

    These would be roasted peppers such as banana peppers, I think. Italian style. Jalapenos don't belong in a veal sandwich!

      I'm not so sure they are banana peppers. 1. Because I've never had banana peppers that spicy 2. San Fran's peppers are green and banana peppers tend to be orange, yellow.

      The search continues.

      No clue apart from mentionng there are pickled jalapenos that aren't thermonuclear. The Mexican San Marcos brand are nice and available at many Loblaws--love 'em. Still, as indicated, these aren't trad on a veal sandwich.There are just sooo many pickled Italian-style peppers to say definitively...

        But those still aren't what are used in Veal sandwiches, as you said. I am interested in this too. I would love to get a recipe and make my own. I don't think I have ever seen them for sale anywhere. One time an Italian friend brought me a bottle of hot peppers her mom made and they were just like what I get on sandwiches.

          Well, I guess I'll have to force myself to make the trip to San Fran's to get the answer personally and have one of the best veal's out there. Oh darn. I'll keep ya posted on my findings.

            What I learned a long time ago at SanFran is that their Medium and Hot veal use the same peppers. The hot simply contains twice as many. MMM...salivating already with 3 hours til lunch...

              Yes, that's correct. Although I find that the medium and the hot are both pretty darn hot. Which I like so I'm not complaining.
