My All Time Favorite Super Bowl Sandwich

Need some good eats with a little more gusto to go along with Eatin' and Drinkin' on NFL Super Bowl Sunday? Then check out this AMAZING Pittsburgh, PA influenced sandwich recipe that is great for both parties and tailgating.
A Pittsburgh Style Sandwich ~ All on One Bun
Originally from Pittsburgh, I'm used to eating the most unbelievable ‘Game Day’ food on this planet. There is just something amazing about the food served in the city and surrounding area’s dive bars. This sandwich is of the Pittsburgh style ‘Eat it All on a Bun’. You may not be familiar with this style and you may not be a Steeler fan but I'm sure you will soon be a huge fan of this recipe. Additionally, this eatin’ advice is being made available to you today from the daughter of an eye-witness to the Immaculate Reception.

Preparation and Cook Time
How to Serve the Super Bowl Sandwich
Pay attention because the way you serve this is important, and separates the men from the boys. On a big Kaiser roll, you slap on a slice of pork, a fork or two full of sauerkraut, a link of kielbasa (split down the center so it sits on the sandwich), and a pierogi or two. Next, you top the whole mother-lov'n mess off with a healthy dollop of sour cream.
Make no mistake, this is a two-fisted sandwich, in the same ballpark as the famous ‘Dagwood’ (circa 1930), so it takes a little coordination to get ‘er down. This central European influenced manwich is best served with some large sourdough pretzels and a frosty beer.
