Pot Roast Sandwich Smothered in Gravy with Melted Swiss Cheese and Horseradish Mayonnaise

Pot Roast Sandwich Smothered in Gravy with Melted Swiss Cheese and Horseradish Mayonnaise


Before I had even made the pot roast I knew that my first use for the leftovers would have to be pot roast sandwiches smothered in the tasty sauce from the braising. I think I might have been looking forward to the leftover sandwiches more than the actual pot roast itself. I could not see making this sandwich without a melted gooey cheese and I ended up going with some swiss. To melt the cheese I assembled part of the sandwich and placed it under the broiler with the cheese on top. To finish the sandwich off I was thinking about a horseradish and mayonnaise sauce. Horseradish goes well with beef and I thought that it would add a nice bite to the sandwich that would help balance out the cheese and gravy. The sandwiches turned out a little messy but they were so good!! Tender moist braised beef in a tasty gravy with gooey melted cheese is such a great combo. I also enjoyed the horseradish and mayonnaise flavour combo and it worked really well in the sandwich. I will be eating a few more of these sandwiches before the leftovers are gone.

What a great blog- your food looks fantastic. It's not often that every post on a blog is something I want to make!

Dana McCauley said...

You should check out Dinner with Julie. She did a post for a pulled pork panini that I think could be adapted to work for pot roast very easily.

Your sandwich looks great - don't get me wrong - but her sandwich is really over the top!

Elra said...

That is why you have left over, right? Mayonnaise and horseradish sounds so good Kevin.
Cheers,
Elra

If you ask me, the leftovers from pot roast are the absolute best part -- simply because you can put together amazing sammiches like this one. *drool*

Great way to use up the leftover pot roast of the the day Kevin. Ut amazes me how you can be so inventive day after day!!

Jeph said...

OMG that looks sooooo good! I can totally see making a roast JUST so you can have this for leftovers. Heck, we have a wedge of jarlsberg cheese that's "starting to sprout" a little in the fridge. I can see making a roast JUST to have leftovers for sandwiches JUST to use that cheese!

duodishes said...

Salivating. Like for real.

Cheesy and messy is the description of a sandwich that's hard to resist! I've mad pot roast sandwiches, but they don't compare to this one!

OMG, those sandwiches look incredible! I have always maintained that the leftover sandwiches are reason enough to cook a roast :)

Bobby said...

Anonymous said...

I made your recipe for the pot roast with the coffee gravy using deer round steaks and it turned out delicious! The next day I made this sandwich with the leftovers and again it was wonderful, the leftovers won't last much longer! thanks for your recipes!
