HORSE RADISH AND BEEF SANDWICH IDEA

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

what do you think it will be the best to make a sandwich with horseradish and beef?

post #2 of 14

Hm, based on the ingredients I'd go with a pretty rare roast beef, freshly grated horseradish, a coarse-grained mustard, cornichons and a robust sourdough bread. Nothing fancy to be done there, the ingredients call for simplicity.

I'd probably consider some sort of swiss cheese as well.

It's interesting - I really can't imagine a swiss cheese there that would fit without either being overwhelmed by the quite intense roast beef/horseradish combination or else overwhelming it itself. Might be my upbringing - cheese on sandwiches always went with ham or bacon, but never with roast beef. You got a particular one in mind, teamfat?

Sometimes in specialty cheese shops I can find this fabulous cheese made in Switzerland called "meerrettichrahmkaese" or translated, horseradish cream cheese. It's different than horseradish blended into our American style Philly cream cheese, more like a really, really thick mascarpone with a bit of cheesy tang and then really bright horseradish. 

This cheese is wonderful with roast beef of any sort. I also like it a lot with smoked turkey or Westphalian ham.

Something like that would be a real winner on your sandwich, I'm sure.

 

Unfortunately, it's kind of hard to find. I've gone to several cheese shops in NYC and been unlucky. Maybe sometime soon I can find a way to  replicate it.

Roast beef sandwiches served with horseradish cream has been served for years in many places. As far as straight grated horseradish I think it would be to strong, but to each his own.

Rare roast beef sliced thin, sprinkle of salt, shaved red onion and horse radish on thin crusty bread - done.  Pickle on the side if you want and a cold beer complete the picture.

Speaking of horseradish-

I made the huge mistake of planting one little horseradish plant in my herb garden about eight years ago.

Now it's everywhere! Huge plants (pretty though) huge roots. 

 

Does anyone have a suggestion as to how to grate this stuff without having to wear a gas mask and clear the house of any living beings beforehand?

I made the additional mistake of digging up ONE root, peeling and grating it in my food processor.

WE HAD TO RUN FOR OUR LIVES!

I thought my eyes were melting! and my sinuses felt on the verge of causing a brain hemorrhage!

Food, you are doomed. As soon as you let it run free in your garden... well... It takes over ;)

Try using a sharp microplane, it comes out like fluffy snow and you can do quite a bit before the tears flow, say half a large root.

And, if you plant it in the garden - place a root barrier about 30 cm deep into the earth around it, or it WILL take over the place :D
