Say goodbye to boring pieces of bread with uninspiring meats on them! This Roast Beef Sandwich has tender roast beef, bacon, onions and mushrooms loaded on top of a soft loaf of Italian bread. Don’t forget the chunky blue cheese spread!
Well, it’s official. This Mitten Movie Night marks 1 month until….my birthday! In honor of the downward slide and creeping closer to the middle of 40, I figured I would treat myself to one of my favorite food groups-sandwiches. There is nothing better than a BIG sandwich that you can sink your teeth into and just enjoy. The best thing about sandwiches is that almost anything goes and that goes for this roast beef sandwich that’s anything but average.
When I was thinking of what type of sandwich to make I decided to make it like a big sub sandwich. Growing up, my mom would make sub sandwiches in the summer and it was always a special treat. While I was at it I thought some bacon would be really good with this too. Then finally, let’s slather a blue cheese sauce on it.
What movie pairs well with a roast beef sandwich and beer?
For the movie recommendation, I HIGHLY suggest Father of the Year. Who doesn’t love Adam Sandler movies? David Spade returns to a little bit of Joe Dirt character which made this movie too funny! So now on to the roast beef sandwich recipe.
What beer pairs well with a roast beef sandwich?
The beer: Pooltime Ale from Bell’s Brewing.
The beefy concoction will pair perfectly with this refreshing summer brew. This beer is slightly tart from the cherries which make a perfect contrast to all the beef and tangy blue cheese in this. I may even say that I hit this combination out of the park!
How to make this Roast Beef Sandwich:
First, start by cooking the bacon. I like bacon very crisp so I cooked it for about 6 minutes then turn and cook for an additional 6-8 minutes.
Take the loaf of bread and cut it in half. Spread with butter and place face down on a cookie sheet.
Put into a preheated 350-degree oven and let it toast up for about 5-8 minutes.
Once the bacon is done remove it from the pan and put on a plate with paper towels to allow it to drain. Remove all the grease in the pan from the bacon reserving about 1-2 tsp.
Add 1 Tbs of butter to that (this is not very diet friendly if you can’t tell) then add the sliced mushrooms and onions.
Let those cook down for about 5 minutes. Then add the roast beef.
While those cook flip the bread over and spread the cheese equally on each side. Put back into the oven and let the cheese melt, around 5 minutes.
Make the sauce by mixing the blue cheese, mayonnaise and horseradish sauce together.
Crumble the bacon and add to the cooked roast beef. Take the bread out of the oven then pile it high onto one side of the bread then top off with the other.
Cut into 6 pieces then serve. Let others add lettuce, tomatoes, and the blue cheese mixture as they like.
And here you are…..
