A roast beef submarine sandwich

The roast beef sandwich is a sandwich that is made out of sliced roast beef or sometimes beef loaf. It is sold at many diners in the United States, as well as fast food chains, such as Arby’s and Roy Rogers Restaurants. This style of sandwich often comes on a hamburger bun and may be topped with barbecue sauce and/or melted American cheese. The roast beef sandwich also commonly comprises bread, cold roast beef (either the leftovers from a homemade dinner or deli meat), lettuce, tomatoes, and mustard, although it would not be uncommon to find cheese, horseradish, fresh/powdered chili pepper and even in some cases red onion. Roast beef sandwiches may be served cold or hot, and are sometimes served open faced.

Some trace the origins of the modern (American-style) roast beef sandwich as far back as 1877, with the then little known “beefsteak toast” recipe: cold beef, bread and gravy dish. In 1900, the dish was described by The Washington Post as “unattractive” and as “a tired ark in a gravy flood”. The dish gained popularity in the coming years and by 1931, some critics even went as far as to describe it as “a true taste of South Dakota”

Roast beef sandwiches have been a specialty of the Boston area, in particular in the North Shore of Massachusetts, since the early 1950s, typically served very rare, thinly sliced (sometimes referred to as shaved) and piled on an onion roll. Restaurants specializing it include Londi’s in Peabody, King’s of Salem, Hot Box of Somerville, Mike’s of Everett, Nick’s of Beverly, Harrison’s of North Andover, Land & Sea of Peabody, and Bill and Bob’s of Peabody, Salem and Woburn. In Brooklyn a small handful of establishments, beginning with Brennan & Carr in 1938, have served a variant of the sandwich, and two more directly Boston-derived roast beef restaurants opened in the early 2010s.

A modern variety of roast beef sandwich has become a staple in Eastern Massachusetts. Their most popular toppings are mayonnaise, James River BBQ sauce, and cheese (white American cheese on the bottom) individually or in some combination of the three, all together being called a “3-Way”. A horseradish cream sauce can also be added for extra tang/zest. Kelly’s Roast Beef restaurant of Revere, Massachusetts, claims to have invented the sandwich in 1951.

A traditional beef on weck sandwich

Beef on weck
The beef on weck is a sandwich found primarily in Western New York. It is made with roast beef on a kummelweck roll topped with salt and caraway seeds. The meat on the sandwich is traditionally served rare, thin cut, with the top bun getting a dip au jus and topped with horseradish.

Chivito sandwich
The chivito sandwich is a national dish in Uruguay, and consists primarily of a thin slice of filet mignon (churrasco beef), with mozzarella, tomatoes, mayonnaise, black or green olives, and commonly also bacon, fried or hard-boiled eggs and ham. It is served in a bun, often with a side of French fries. Other ingredients might be added into the sandwich such as red beets, peas, grilled or pan-fried red peppers, and slices of cucumber.

Corned beef sandwich
The corned beef sandwich is a sandwich prepared with corned beef. The salt beef style corned beef sandwiches are traditionally served with mustard and a pickle. In the United Kingdom, pickle is a common addition to a corned beef sandwich.

A French dip sandwich

A French dip sandwich

The French dip sandwich is a hot sandwich consisting of thinly sliced roast beef (or, sometimes, other meats) on a “French roll” or baguette. It is usually served au jus, that is, with beef juice from the cooking process. Beef broth or beef consommé is sometimes substituted. Despite the name, this American specialty is almost completely unknown in France, the name seeming to refer to the style of bread rather than an alleged French origin.

Pastrami on rye
The pastrami on rye is a classic sandwich made famous in the Jewish kosher delicatessens of New York City. First created in 1888 by Sussman Volk, who served it at his deli on Delancey Street in New York City. It became a favorite at other delis, served on rye bread and topped with spicy brown mustard. Delis in New York City, like Katz’s Delicatessen, have become known for their Pastrami on rye sandwiches.

Love that Olive Oil…..

Adding even just a little of olive oil can really bring out the flavors of a dish. Obviously, it’s easy to go overboard on this. I’ve found that a little dab will do, but I do love the flavors it adds. I’ve used olive oil on Hummus, Pastas, and even cakes!

Fried Oysters w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Summer Crisp Corn

Today’s Menu: Fried Oysters w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Summer Crisp Corn

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a Aunt Millie’s Living Carb Smart English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Well it’s been a while since I’ve made a Dinner Post. But now I’m fully recovered from the fall I took. It took a while but I’m 100% again. I never want to go through that again! It’s a beautiful Fall day outside, we’ve had about beautiful Fall Days in a row! Sunny and 68 degrees out. Did some raking leaves and took care of remaining Pepper Plants. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Oysters w/ Roasted Cauliflower and Summer Crisp Corn.

 

I had this trio of Oysters, Cauliflower, and Corn a while back, it was so good that I’m having it again! As usual I used Hilton’s Fresh Farm Raised Pacific Willapoint Oysters, my favorite. To prepare them; Place shucked oysters in a colander, rinse in cold water and drain. Dredge drained Oysters in the Flour, then Egg Beater’s, and then in Panko Crumbs seasoned with Sea Salt and Pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry for at least 1/2 hour. An easy way to coat the oysters with the Panko Crumbs is to place the Crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

 

Next, heat I heat some Cooking Olive Oil in a skillet. Then fry the Oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each Oyster carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in the frying pan. Remove from the frying pan and serve immediately. Serve with Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce. I served mine with a side of my favorite hot sauce Frank’s Hot Sauce. These are so delicious, golden brown and with an incredible fresh flavor.

 

I roasted a bag of Cauliflower Florets. One of our favorite sides! To prepare it I’ll need a baking pan. I ‘ll be roasting it at 425 degrees until knife tender. To season it I’ll need Cooking Olive Oil, Salt and Ground Pepper. I first washed off the Cauliflower. Next I sliced the bigger florets in half, they bake better when they aren’t so big. I baked them at 425 degrees. I checked them a few times until I could stick a paring knife through them. And they did come out so tender and delicious! I served them with some Hidden Valley Buffalo Ranch Dressing.

 

Then for another side I opened a can of Del Monte Summer Crisp White Shoepeg Corn. It comes in a can, just heat it up in a small saucepan and serve. It’s tough finding this, Meijer finally had some on the shelf. Enjoyed this Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder Pretzels with a diet Peach Snapple to drink. Take Care and Stay Safe Everyone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pan-Fried Oysters Recipe:
Ingredients:

12 large-medium Oysters, shucked
1 tablespoon Flour
1 Eggs, beaten or 1/4 cup egg Beater’s
1 cup Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko Bread Crumbs
Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste
2 to 3 tablespoons Extra Light Olive Oil
Lemon Wedges, optional
Hot sauce, optional
Seafood Cocktail Sauce, optional

Preparation:

Place shucked oysters in a colander to drain.

1 – Dip drained oysters in flour, then beaten eggs, shake off excess, and in panko crumbs seasoned with salt and pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. NOTE: An easy way to coat the oysters with the panko crumbs is to place the crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.

2 – Heat canola oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot.

3 – Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each oysters carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled. Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately.

Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce.

Makes 2 servings.

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili
Make a double batch of this quick vegetarian chili, full of black beans and sweet potatoes, and eat it for lunch the next day or freeze the extras for another night. We love the smoky heat from the ground chipotle, but omit it if you prefer a mild chili. Serve with tortilla chips or cornbread and coleslaw……

Roasted Cauliflower and Potato Curry Soup
In this healthy cauliflower soup recipe, roasting the cauliflower first adds depth and prevents the florets from turning to mush. A little tomato sauce and coconut milk give the broth a rich, silky texture. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt, if desired……
