How to Make Fried Lake Trout and Pit Beef from ‘The Wire’

In the latest episode of “Binging with Babish,” a cooking series where home chef Andrew Rea recreates famous foods from films and TV shows, Andrew demonstates how to make deep fried lake trout and fries, a roasted “pit beef” sandwich, and an egg cracked into beer from HBO’s hit 2002-2008 crime drama series, The Wire.

Lake trout, pit beef, eggs cracked into beers – come for the gritty and heartbreaking depictions of heroin addicts and inner city grade schoolers, stay for the eats!”
