The Roast Beef Sandwich, piled high with medium-rare rotisserie thinly sliced beef on a buttered and grilled Kaiser Roll. So good. This is a favorite meal around these parts. Everyone getting to make his or her version of their sandwich, who puts barbecue sauce on theirs, who uses mayonnaise, who likes it plain with salt and pepper, the variations can go on and on.
To make this meal…
1. I rotisseried (could be a word?) a small 2.5-3 pound eye round in my George Foreman 8 in 1 toaster (the best little toaster oven I have ever had).
2. Before placing it in the oven I give it a good rub down with some seasonings like salt, pepper, powdered celery seed, onion, garlic, and maybe some rosemary too or sometimes I use Penzeys English Prime Rib Rub.
3. The roast will rotisserie for 45 minutes then get wrapped up tight in foil to set for 30 or so minutes.
4. I slice it thinly and serve with rolls, cheese, barbecue sauce, butter, salt, pepper, mayonnaise, pepper rings, and fresh fruit and chips.
* IF you do not have a rotisserie then you can do this roast for 45 minutes in a 425 degree oven, or using a kitchen thermometer, finish to your likeness remembering that it will cook a bit more once wrapped in the foil.
PS- I love dipping the inside of the top of my bun in the au jus that is flowing all over the platter.
1. Another day using the leftover meat we like to make fajitas or tacos by julienning the meat along with red onion and yellow, red, or orange bell peppers.
2. Toss the meat with your favorite taco or fajita seasoning. Put aside.
3. In a large skillet heat about 1 T. oil and toss in onions and peppers. Saute until tender crisp. Add in the meat and cook until heated through. Give it all a good squirt of fresh lime juice.
4. Serve with flour tortillas or crispy corn taco shells, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, shredded cheese, and hot sauce. Fresh fruit and a salad and you have a complete and easy second meal that tastes completely different than the first.
My brother introduced me to this knife sharpener and it was quickly put on every ones Christmas wish list, and everyone got one for Christmas! For under 10 bucks I could not ask for a better sharpener, so much easier and cheaper than sending my knives off to the “pros” to get done. It even does my serrated knives. Oh and it works so well you may want to keep some sutures in the kitchen drawer to sew yourself up on the days you perform accidental surgery on your thumb like I did. Must. Go. To. Knife. Skills. School.
