"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
This sandwich is a Springfield, Illinois original and this is just one take on how the sauce should be made.

You can make this a Pony Shoe by using just one slice of toast and one hamburger (or half the amount of the meat of your choice).
