In this video, we fire up the Weber grill and whip up some crazy good rib-eye steak, chorizo, and potato sandwich also know as a Pombazo Mexicano.

Pambazo (About this soundpamˈbaso (helpinfo)) is a Mexican dish or antojito (very similar to the torta) made with pambazo bread dipped and fried in a red guajillo pepper sauce and filled with papas con chorizo (potatoes with chorizo) or with papas only.

The bread used for pambazos is white and lacks a crispy crust. This particular bread is made of flour and is softer than the similar bolillo (also used for sandwiches), which allows it to retain its shape while being soaked in sauce. Teleras are usually found in Mexican bakeries where they are sold just like any other white bread.


Red Sauce:
Dried Guajillo Chillies 7
Mexicano Oregano 1 tsp
Garlic 5 cloves
Other Ingredients:
Pork Chorizo
Thinly Sliced Ribeye Steak
Hash Browns or Potato
Bolillo or Mexican Rolls
Sour Cream mixed with lime juice and cilantro
Shredded Lettuce
Pickled Tomato or Finely Chopped Tomato
