The Sandwich Legends represent all-time American classics.
ATLANTA – Arby’s Restaurant Group Inc. has announced a new line called Sandwich Legends that include two new offerings, the Miami Cuban, Texas Brisket and the familiar favorite New York Rueben.
The Miami Cuban features sliced pork loin and pit-smoked ham topped with melted Swiss cheese, dill pickles and yellow mustard on a toasted sub roll. The pork loin is rubbed with brown sugar, molasses powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper prior to slow roasting for hours.
The Texas Brisket consists of Arby’s 13-hour hickory-smoked brisket with Texas-style barbecue sauce, crispy onion strings and dill pickles on Texas toast. The barbecue sauce is a new recipe for Arby’s, using chipotle peppers for flavor.
The veteran of the Sandwich Legends lineup, the New York Rueben, is a fixture on the Arby’s menu. It features the same Reuben ingredients found at delis across New York City: corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing on toasted marble rye bread. Guests can also pile on the corned beef with a Double Rueben.
“What makes these sandwiches legendary and beloved across the country is how they are part of the culture and pride in the cities and regions where they were created,” said Jim Taylor, chief marketing officer of Arby’s. “Our goal in bringing Sandwich Legends to the menu is to give guests a convenient destination to enjoy some of the most famous sandwiches in America, prepared in a way that pays homage to the classics.”
The Miami Cuban, Texas Brisket and New York Reuben sandwiches are available at Arby’s restaurants nationwide.
