Pit beef has become the go-to meal for barbecue sandwiches throughout Maryland and the neighboring Baltimore area. Costas Inn is well-known for its seafood and crab dishes. However, we also specialize in cooking other delicacies, such as pit beef. If you want to learn more about this meal, plan to try it, or have already eaten it, this blog is for you.
Pit Beef Is A Baltimore Favorite
Local historians believe this dish originated on the city’s east side. Initially, pit beef was not recognized as a staple dish but, over time, gained significant popularity. For nearly 50 years, Costas Inn has served the absolute best pit beef sandwiches in Baltimore.
How Did Pit Beef Rise In Popularity?
The popularity of pit beef has expanded substantially over time. Pit beef is becoming increasingly popular on the menus of barbecue restaurants. The truth is that no one knows how local pit meat became so popular. Nonetheless, after several years, locals began to notice pit beef. Over time, pit beef has become a fixture within Baltimore culture and cuisine.
How Is Pit Beef Prepared?
The meat is often served rare and sliced into tiny, delicate slices. Pit beef is made from top round roast and is barbecued over hardwood or charcoal. It is also stacked high on bread or a roll, and topped with horseradish, a few onions, and (occasionally) barbeque sauce. Typically, the dish is served with a side of french fries.
