Debris Po’Boy Sandwich NOLA In Your Mouth

May 7, 2015
Debris Sandwich

So now you can make a phenomenal pot roast, right?  Good!  Now take the bits and jus (juice from the roast & cooking liquid) and make the world’s best sandwich:  The Debris Po’Boy! I fell in absolute, head-over-heals, love with these at Mother’s in New Orleans.  They are damn good.  Good enough to make the pot roast for in the first place, that’s for sure.  I mean sure you can eat slices with nice side dishes of vegetables and mashed potatoes… but once you wrap your lips around this sandwich you’ll be making roasts just for these.  Trust me.

Before we begin, let’s talk about bread.  New Orleans French bread is a thing of beauty. A gift from whatever God you believe in… just perfect.  If you’re like me, you can’t find nice airy and hearty bread in your area.  It’s a tragedy I know.  If all you can find is mega-mart dense, doughy, “French/Italian/We Aren’t Sure/It all tastes the same no matter the shape” bread you CAN make do.  Just pinch out a bit of the center.  It’s not ideal but you’ll still get a good sandwich.



  • Two cups shredded pot roast
  • 1 cup pot jus (cooking juice from the roast)
  • Two hearty rolls, slit down the center in the middle, not all the way through – see photo
  • Yellow Mustard to taste
  • Mayonnaise to taste (keeps your bread from turning to absolute mush)
  • A hungry belly


Slit the rolls in the center middle, not all the way through either side or back.

Split the Roll Debris Sandwhich

Fill with mayo and mustard.

Fill with Condiments

Use tongs to stuff those puppies full of meat.  Pour in half the juice between the two.  Use the rest for dipping if you desire.

Debris Sandwiches

Now eat.


Super simple. Super good.
