The hot beef sandwich, a favorite in North Dakota diners, is a fork and knife affair, and you won't find much variation on the classic from restaurant to restaurant. The sandwich – often served open-faced – features sliced beef and toasted bread, served with a scoop of mashed potatoes and smothered in a rich, brown beef gravy. If beef isn't your thing, many menus also feature a hot turkey variation.
