Spiedis (pronounced "speedeez") are a type of grilled meat sandwich considered a local specialty. This recipe is my own, but there are many variations in our area. In nearby Binghamton, Spiedi-Fest is held on August, featuring this delicious dish made of all different kinds of meat. Thousands of people attend. I hope you enjoy my pork version. -Beatrice Riddell, Chenango Bridge, New York

"Very good! I ended up not cutting the meat into pieces, but it still tasted amazing! I will definitely be making it again."
