Club sandwich

Club sandwich

A club sandwich, also called a clubhouse sandwich, is a sandwich of bread (occasionally toasted), sliced cooked poultry, or fried bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise. It is often cut into quarters or halves and held together by cocktail sticks. Modern versions frequently have two layers which are separated by an additional slice of bread.

The club sandwich may have originated at the Union Club of New York City. The earliest known reference to the sandwich, an article that appeared in The Evening World on November 18, 1889, is also an early recipe; “Have you tried a Union Club sandwich yet? Two toasted pieces of Graham bread, with a layer of turkey or chicken and ham between them, served warm.”Several other early references also credit the chef of the Union Club with creating the sandwich.

Other sources, however, find the origin of the club sandwich to be up for debate. Another theory is that the club sandwich was invented in an exclusive Saratoga Springs, New York, gambling club in the late 19th century.

The sandwich is known to have appeared on U.S. restaurant menus as far back as 1899. The earliest reference to the sandwich in published fiction is from Conversations of a Chorus Girl, a 1903 book by Ray Cardell. Historically, club sandwiches featured slices of chicken, but with time, turkey has become increasingly common.

Club sandwich with tater tots

As with a BLT, toasted white bread is standard, along with iceberg lettuce, bacon, and tomatoes. The sandwich is traditionally dressed with mayonnaise. Variations, however, on the traditional club sandwich abound. Some vary the protein, for example, a “breakfast club” that includes eggs or a “roast beef club.” Others include ham (instead of, or in addition to bacon) and/or cheese slices. Vegetarian club sandwiches often include hummus, avocado or spinach, as well as substitute the real bacon with a vegetarian alternative. Mustard and sometimes honey mustard are common condiments. Upscale variations include, for example, the oyster club, the salmon club, and Dungeness crab melt.

The sandwich is commonly served with an accompaniment of either coleslaw, or potato salad, and often garnished with a pickle. The coleslaw or potato salad is often reduced to a “garnish” portion, when the primary accompaniment is an order of french fries or potato chips. Due to high fat and carb content from the bread, bacon and dressing, club sandwiches have sometimes been criticized as unhealthy. In 2000, Burger King came under fire for its chicken club, which contained 700 calories, 44 grams of fat (nine of them saturated), and 1,300 milligrams of sodium, as well as the trans fat from the fryer shortening.

Today’s Menu: Roast Beef, Ham, Bacon, and Cheddar Cheese Double Decker w/ Chips

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. One of my favorite Breakfasts! After Breakfast I went up to the local Kroger for a couple of items and stopped by the ATM machine at the Bank on the way back home. Cloudy and a high of 48 degrees out. Got the leaf blower out and did the usual cleaning of the deck and driveway areas. Trimmed down Mom’s Rose Bushes and gave a final trim to a couple of the hedges. Not a whole lot else going on today. For Dinner tonight its Sandwich Night, I prepared a Roast Beef, Ham, Bacon, and Cheddar Cheese Double Decker w/ Chips.

 

 

I went to Jungle Jim’s International Market yesterday and purchased several Boar’s Head Meats and Cheese. Jungle Jim’s carries all of Boar’s Head products along with some test items from Boar’s Head. I purchased Boar’s Head London Broil Roast Beef (Rare), Sweet Sliced Ham, and Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar (sliced). I used these3 items along with Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon, Bib Lettuce, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, Emeril’s Deli Style Mustard, and Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread (3 slices) to make my Double Decker.

 

 

 

To start I gathered everything up. I first fried my Bacon 4 slices. And as always when frying Bacon you always make double the amount you need because it’s near impossible not to snack on it as your making it! With the Bacon fried I started making my Double Decker. I first toasted my 3 slices of Bread. On the bottom slice of Toast I first spread Mayo across it, next a slice of the Vermont Cheddar, 2 slices of Bacon, Bib Lettuce, then slices of the Sweet Sliced Ham, topped it with the Deli Mustard, and my bottom half of the Decker was done.

 

 

Topped everything with another slice of the Toast. I then topped that with Mayo, a slice of the Cheese, 2 slices of Bacon, Bib Lettuce, next slices of the Roast Beef, Deli Mustard, and the last slice of Toast. And the Double Decker is ready! Wow, what a Sandwich! Love the Boar’s Head Meat and Cheese. Then the Mayo and Mustard give perfect flavor. Excellent Sandwich!

 

 

 

 

 

I had some Ruffle’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips to go with the Sandwich I also had a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Today’s Menu: Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef!

 

French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links 001
It was French Toast and Turkey Sausage Links for my Breakfast this morning! For the French Toast I used Egg Beater’s, Ground Nutmeg, Ground Cinnamon, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Just mix the first three ingredients together, amount depends on how many slices you are making. Preheat a skillet, add butter, and preheat on medium. Dip your bread in the mixture and grill in the pan until done, flipping once. I love the combo of the Nutmeg and Cinnamon for his! Topped it with some Maple Groves Sugarless Maple Syrup. For the Links I used Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast sausage Links. Also had the morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

After Breakfast Mom wanted to go to Jungle Jim’s International Market, which was fine by me! Love shopping there! The store is so huge and just packed with items from Ground Kangaroo to Quail Eggs. The best Deli, Produce, Meat, and Seafood Departments you can find. We ended up the rest of the morning there! Still fairly hot and humid but we have some days coming in the 70’s and no humidity! Can’t wait. So for Dinner tonight – Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef!

 

 

 

Chips, Dips, and Roast Beef! 002

To make the Sandwich I’ll be using; Boar’s Head Deluxe Low Sodium Oven Roasted Beef – Cap-Off Top Round, Private Selection Sweet Hot Stone Ground Mustard, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The Roast Beef is always so fresh and the Beef is cooked to a perfect Rare and seasoned just right. I picked up the Boar’s Head Roast Beef while at Jungle Jim’s International Market earlier today. The Deli Department carries every Boar’s Head Meat and Cheese that’s available. Love that store!

One of America’s Favorites – French Dip

April 6, 2015 at 5:36 AM | Posted in BEEF | 1 Comment

A French dip

A French dip

An American cuisine, the French dip sandwich, also known as a beef dip, 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 (“with juice”), 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.

Although the sandwich is most commonly served with a cup of jus or broth on the side of the plate, into which the sandwich is dipped as it is eaten, this is not how the sandwich was served when it was invented.

Two Los Angeles restaurants have claimed to be the birthplace of the French dip sandwich: Cole’s Pacific Electric Buffet and Philippe The Original. Philippe’s website describes the dish as a “specialty of the house”, and the words “Home Of The Original French Dip Sandwich” are present in the restaurant’s logo. At both of these restaurants, the roll is dipped in the hot beef juices before the sandwich is assembled, and is served “wet”. The sandwich can also be requested “double dipped” at either establishment. Philippe’s own brand of spicy mustard is traditionally used by patrons to complement the sandwich.

His controversy over who originated the sandwich remains unresolved. Both restaurants were established in 1908.

Roast Beef Dip au jus, with french fries

However, Cole’s claims to have originated the sandwich shortly after the restaurant opened in 1908, while Philippe’s claims that owner Philippe Mathieu invented it in 1918.

The story of the sandwich’s invention by Philippe’s has several variants: some sources say that the sandwich was first created by a cook or a server who, while preparing a sandwich for a police officer or fireman, accidentally dropped it into a pan of meat drippings. The patron liked it, and the dish surged in popularity shortly after its invention. Other accounts say that a customer who didn’t want some meat drippings to go to waste requested his sandwich be dipped in them. Still others say that a chef dipped a sandwich into a pan of meat drippings after a customer complained that the bread was stale. Cole’s account states that the sandwich was invented by a sympathetic chef, Jack Garlinghouse, for a customer who was complaining of sore gums. Some accounts tell Philippe’s version of events, but assign the location to Cole’s. The mystery of the sandwich’s invention might not be solved due to a lack of information and observable evidence.

The French dip is now served at a number of restaurant chains including fast food, diners, and standard restaurants.

One of America’s Favorites – Beef on Weck

A traditional beef on weck

A traditional beef on weck

A beef on weck is a sandwich found primarily in Western New York. It is made with roast beef on a kummelweck roll. The meat on the sandwich is traditionally served rare, thin cut, with the top bun getting a dip au jus. Accompaniments include horseradish, a dill pickle spear, and french fries.

 

 

The kummelweck roll gives the sandwich its name and a distinctive taste. A kummelweck (sometimes pronounced “kimmelweck” or “kümmelweck”) is topped with kosher salt and caraway seeds. Kümmel is the German word for caraway, and weck means “roll” in the south-western German dialects of the Baden and Swabia areas (northern Germans generally say Brötchen), although the kind of weck used for this sandwich in America tends to be much softer and fluffier than a standard German Kümmelbrötchen or Kümmelweck. The sandwich has been introduced to new areas of the United States with population movement. In Austria, a similar type of small white-bread is known as Kümmelweckerl (diminutive from Wecken, which refers to a whole big bread, i.e. Brotwecken)

 
The origin and history of the beef on weck sandwich is not well established. It is believed that a German baker named William Wahr, who is thought to have emigrated from the Black Forest region of Germany, created the kummelweck roll while living in Buffalo, New York. A local pub owner is said to have used the roll to create the beef on weck, with the thought that the salty top of the roll would make his patrons purchase more drinks.
A typical beef on weck is made from slow-roasted rare roast beef that is hand carved in thin slices to provide about 1⁄2 inch (13 mm) of meat on the bottom half of the roll. The cut face of the top half of the roll may be dipped in the jus from the roast. Prepared horseradish is usually provided for the diner to spread on the top half of the roll to taste. The traditional side dishes for a beef on weck are french fries and a kosher dill pickle spear.

 
The beef on weck has long been popular regionally, and has gained a following in other areas of the United States where it has been introduced. Expatriates from Western New York have taken the dish and brought it to other areas after relocating. It has also been featured by chefs on cooking shows including the PBS special Sandwiches That You Will Like. Bobby Flay, Anthony Bourdain and other chefs have featured the beef on weck, or a variant, on their television programs.

The American restaurant chain Buffalo Wild Wings was started by former residents of the Western New York area and the original name of the restaurant was “Buffalo Wild Wings and Weck” or as “BW3”, the third W referring to weck. The chain no longer serves weck outside of the Western New York area and no longer uses the original name, but some still refer to the company with the extra “W” in its abbreviation.

 

 

Beef on Weck Sandwich – Beef on Weck Sandwich Recipe:

I came across this recipe for Beef on Weck off one of my favorite sites What’s Cooking America. http://whatscookingamerica.net/

Whats Cooking America

 

Some people consider Beef on Weck (thinly sliced slow-roasted rare roast beef piled as high as 6 inches) on a freshly baked kummelweck roll, the Best Roast Beef Sandwich in America. Also called Beef on Wick, an alternative spelling usually used by older people from Buffalo and eastern suburbanites.

This sandwich is a tradition and a staple of Buffalo, New York, as it is Buffalo’s signature sandwich. The key to a good Beef on Weck is freshness and freshly-carved beef! In Buffalo, the beef must be on the rare side, preferably carved right off the bone and served on a salty kimmelweck roll. In fact, it is this roll that makes the sandwich unique. Few, if any, restaurants outside the Buffalo area serve this sandwich or even know what it is.
Beef on Weck Sandwich – Beef on Weck Sandwich Recipe:

Yields: 8 sandwiches
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 50 minutes
Ingredients:

1 (3- to 4-pounds) beef roast (tenderloin, Prime Rib, or eye of round)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Coarse salt and coarsely-ground black pepper
Cornstarch Glaze (see recipe below)
8 Kimmelweck or Kaiser rolls*
2 tablespoons caraway seeds
2 tablespoons coarse salt**
Prepared horseradish

* Kimmelweck roll is a salty roll that is similar to a Kaiser roll.

** Rock salt (like the kind used for pretzels) is the preferred salt used in Buffalo. If you can’t get this, any salt with granules larger than table salt will do. I used coarse salt.
Preparation:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Rub roast with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place roast on rack in a shallow baking pan, tucking the thin end under to make it as thick as the rest of the roast. Bake, uncovered, 40 to 45 minutes or until thermometer registers 130 to 135 degrees F. Remove from oven and transfer to a cutting board; let stand 15 minutes before carving. Reserve meat juice, and carve meat into very thin slices (as thin as you can slice).

Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.

Brush the prepared Cornstarch Glaze on the top of each kimmelweck or Kaiser roll; sprinkle equal amounts of caraway seeds and heat in the oven for 3 minutes or until tops of the rolls get crusty and the caraway seeds and salt begin to stick. Remove from oven and cut each roll in half lengthwise.

To assemble sandwiches, divide sliced beef on the bottom half of each roll, spoon with reserved beef juice, and top with the top half of each roll. Serve with horseradish on the side.

Makes 8 sandwiches.

Cornstarch Glaze:
1/2 cup cold water
1 tablespoon cornstarch

In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stir together water and cornstarch. Heat mixture to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to low, and stir until mixture thickens and is translucent. Remove from heat and let cool.

The Sunday roast is a traditional British main meal served on Sundays (usually in the early afternoon for lunch), consisting of roasted meat, roast potato or mashed potato, with accompaniments such as Yorkshire pudding, stuffing, vegetables and gravy.

Sunday roast consisting of roast beef, mashed potatoes, other vegetables and mini Yorkshire puddings

It is popular throughout the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland. Other names for this meal are Sunday dinner, Sunday lunch, Sunday tea, Roast dinner, and Sunday joint, joint being a word that specif

ically refers to the joint of meat. The meal is often comparable to a less grand version of a traditional Christmas dinner in these cultures.

English Roast Beef

Ingredients
5 pounds beef round roast
salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1/2 teaspoon dried mint
1 medium onion, sliced (optional)
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
1/8 teaspoon seasoning salt (optional)
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cold water
1/4 teaspoon dried sage
1/4 teaspoon dried mint

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Season the roast with salt and pepper to taste. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown the outside of the roast on all sides in the butter. After the roast is browned, add 1/2 cup water to the pan, and sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of sage, and 1/2 teaspoon of mint onto the roast. Place onion and garlic into the pan if desired, and season with seasoning salt and red pepper flakes, if using.
Cover the pot, and place the roast in the oven for 2 to 3 hours depending on how well done you prefer the meat to be. 2 hours for rare, and 3 for well done. Removed finished roast to a pan to keep warm.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a medium skillet. Whisk flour into melted butter until smooth. Remove from heat, and stir in 1/2 cup cold water. Mix until a smooth paste is formed. Return to medium heat, and season with remaining sage and mint. Stir in the liquid from the roasting pan, and boil, stirring constantly until the gravy is thickened. Remove from heat. Slice the roast and serve with gravy poured over the meat.
