Thread: deli sloppy joe

  1. Question

    Ok, when I was little a sloppy joe was the burger and tomato sauce sandwhich.

    However, I was introduced to a different sloppy joe:

    3 slices of thin rye bread with 4 types of meat in between (pastrami, roast beef, corned beef, turkey) plus russian dressing and coleslaw--soooo good!

    How many points do you think that is? I had the junior with 2 meats.

    Thanks

    Yes, so good, but so many points! It would be impossible to figure without the nutritional info. on the bread, cold cuts, dressing, etc...

    Personally, if I ate something like this without knowing the points I would put 10 points down for it to encourage myself NOT to do this again.

    It's gonna be way more than 10 points. The bread alone is 6 points. Coleslaw is 2 points per 1/4 cup, so that's another 2-4 points for the sandwich, depending on how much they added (my bet would be 1/3 to 1/2 cup b/c 1/4 cup doesn't cover much - so figure at least 3 points). Russian Dressing is 2 points per TBSP, so figure another 4-6 points for the dressing. The points for the meat will vary depending on what you selected: 1 oz pastrami is 3 points (some types of Boars Head pastrami are 1 point per oz), 1 oz turkey is generally 1 point, 1 oz deli style roast beef is generally 1 points, and 1 oz corned beef is 1 point. Figure around 3 points for the meat, if you think you got around 3 oz.

    That's 16-20 points, assuming they did not grill it - when they grill, they add butter, so add another 2 points for that.

    (By comparison, take a look at www.dwlz.com for Scholtzsky's - their Small Original sandwich - 3 types of meat, 3 cheeses but no mayo, no coleslaw, no Russian Dressing - is 18 points.)

    (Next time, eat half the sandwich. Trust me - I've had those filling, grilled, meaty-dressing-y sandwiches, and half is all you need.) [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Calgal: I "sit" corrected. I think I said 10 points just for "shock" value.
    If I ate something like this without knowing the points beforehand, 10 points would be enough to shock me out of doing this again. But, I think you are right. This was probably more like 18 points.

    Dawna, LOL. I guess we have different "shock" thresholds. 10 points for a sandwich doesn't shock (or deter) me if I think it will keep me full for the rest of the day and I'm planning a very light (i.e. soup and/or salad or oatmeal) dinner. In fact, I often have 8-10 point lunches. Now, go north of 10 points, and I'll have a cow. Any meal north of 15 points is an absolute no-no, except for real special occasions where I have extra flex points saved. The idea of "spending" 18-20 points on a sandwich when I have a target of 20 points per day would freak me out. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the replies. I know I went overboard and have to do my best since all my flex points were used yesterday.

    Have a good week everyone!

    Cool

    Cal, Boy...can I relate to what you are saying.

    For me, a "big" splurge is 15 points on a small box of fried clams, my absolute all time fav.treat. I only have this treat maybe twice a year, usually in the summertime when clams are small and sweet. Oh, man....now my mouth is watering.
