In this Roast Beef Swiss Melt crusty bread surrounds juicy roast beef au jus with a perfectly melted layer of Swiss cheese. Coarse grained Dijon mustard and horseradish perfectly compliment the roast beef.
Perfection if I do say so myself.
When I proposed this sandwich using the left over roast beef from this Pot Roast my Husband got really excited. I’ve never seen my husband get so excited about a sandwich!
Wait for it…
That cheese dripping in the bottom right hand corner tells you it’s going to be good!
All that was standing between us and my vision of the perfect roast beef Swiss melt was horseradish.
My husband offered to run to the store. He braved the most recent Atlanta Snowpocalypse just get some horseradish. You see what I mean?
Excited. About a sandwich.
But not just any sandwich. A Roast Beef Swiss Melt made with the most delicious roast beef I’ve ever had.
This sandwich is similar to a French dip, except the thinly sliced roast beef is tossed in the thickened braising liquid prior to building the sandwich. I really don’t like French Dips. I think they’re gross: the bland sandwich get dipped into the jus, which adds some much needed flavor at the expense of the crusty bread.
Not my thing.
Not in my creation. No soggy bread and no lack of flavor!
This was hands down the best roast beef sandwich I’ve ever had. Crazy good.
I’d like to thank my Husband for being my hand model for these photos. No one models melty cheese better than him! 🙂
