Description[edit | edit source]
Though Americans were likely not the first people to make a sandwich out of roast beef, they are nonetheless given credit for its invention because they were the first ones to bother writing anything about it. The modern roast beef sandwich can be traced back to 1877, consisting of cold beef and gravy. In 1900. the sandwich was called "unattractive" by a popular newspaper.
True to the phrase "there's no such thing as bad press." Americans read about the unattractive sandwich and flocked to eat it. congregating mostly in South Dakota. By 1931 the roast beef sandwich had been called "the true taste of South Dakota." though it is uncertain if that was meant to be a compliment or not.
