It’s Trophy Back Thursday (#TBT) and today we are throwing it back to a custom Far Out Award we made for Thrillist’s Hall of Heroes Event.


A couple of weeks ago we introduced you to the Meatopia Trophy, an award we custom-made for Thrillist’s Meatopia Event. The custom award, which featured stacks of meat atop a golden cup, was such a hit that Thrillist came back looking for a similar award for their next event- Hall of Heroes.

If the mouthwatering image above didn’t make it clear, Hall of Heroes was a celebration of all things sandwich; the best things between sliced bread! Our concept then was to create an award that featured sandwich on sandwich on sandwich.

First we took our Meatball Sub, then we added a BLT, and finally topped it off with a mouthwatering Pastrami Sandwich. The result was nothing short of Far Out!


The chefs at American Cut Steakhouse, led by owner and Iron Chef Mark Forgione, created the sandwich that won the Far Out Award. For Hall of Heroes they made The Ruben: house-made pastrami, fermented slaw, ramp Russian dressing, and Jarlsberg cheese, “piled impossibly high on rye bread.” A classic prepared to perfection…YUM.


Yes, that’s an actual image of their Ruben. No, you can’t lick the sauce off the screen. Sorry.

The team at American Cut (pictured below) were clearly thrilled to take home the Far Out Award. Saucy swiss cheese smiles for days.



Chef Forgione himself stopped by the event and gave Thrillist a little iron chef insight into what makes the perfect pastrami sandwich. The short answer, their pristine pastrami they make themselves (it took them 3 months to perfect). Read more about the event, Forgione’s pastrami, and see more sexy sandwich pics on Thrillist’s write-up right here.
