what do you think it will be the best to make a sandwich with horseradish and beef?
HORSE RADISH AND BEEF SANDWICH IDEA
ChefTalk.com Top Picks
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.
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.
