Boy oh, boy! talk about local recipes...this one isn't just a local recipe, it's a microcosm! Nobody outside of a twenty mile radius around the city of Woonsocket, Rhode Island will have a clue what the heck you are talking about if you mention a "Dynamite Sandwich"
Woonsocket has a heavy French-Canadian influence, from all the immigrants that came to work in the textile mills in the 19th century. It is this influence that produced this local delight. There are many variations on my recipe...actually mine is most unusual. Most people use tomato sauce in theirs, I prefer it without.
The dynamite is nothing more than a spicy ground beef sandwich with peppers and onions, and with the variation you choose.
There is a huge cookoff every year, and a new dynamite champ is crowned. The winner gets their recipe published, and the tourism council has it made, and sells jars for fundraising.
Hoser's Dynamites
2 lbs ground beef
2 lbs onions, large dice
2 lbs bell peppers, large dice
3 stalks celery, diced
1 quart beef broth
1 Tbsp crushed red pepper
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Frank's hot sauce to taste
Heat oil in large Dutch oven and add crushed red pepper. Saute' pepper until oil turns red, then add ground beef, onions, peppers and celery.
Cook, stirring frequently until beef is browned and onions translucent. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
Add beef stock to just cover the mixture. At this point it's a matter of sauce, cumin, chili powder, whatever you want.
Reduce heat and simmer one hour.
Serve on Sub roll with chips and pickles on the side.

Go with your food!

Definitely has a Mediterranean slant !  Sounds like a cross between a Pisto Manchego & A Ragut Bolognese on a sándwich !  

Cool !!!  

Best wishes ..  

Volamos a Mediterraneo, un paraiso que conquista su gente u su cocina.
