Open Faced Roast Beef Sandwich With Sarayo
Like many people, I browse recipes for fun. What? You don’t do that too? Anyway, I’m browsing and remember this Bahn Mi sandwich I had at a Google conference a few months ago. I’d never put cilantro or raw jalapeno on a sandwich before and decided I needed to make some variation. While I didn’t have any leftover pork in the fridge, I did make a tri tip roast last night and decided to make a variation of a Bahn Mi sandwich. I’m calling it an open faced Bahn ME (get it ha ha. Because it’s for ME! Am I not humorous? ;P )
Recipe starts with making a batch of Alison bread. If you haven’t made this before, go make some right now. You will be AMAZED at your ability to now eat bread. Okay. It’s “bread”, in quotes. Not as good as a decent sourdough, but we’re not eating that way anymore, now are we.
I made the bread in a 4″ square microwave safe dish, so it made a nice bread slice shape. I decided it was too thin to slice, so an open faced sandwich it is. I toasted the bread, briefly, in a non stick pan, until it was toasty.
Then I assembled the sandwich, adding a few thin slices of Coastal Cheddar Cheese (From CostCo. Go buy some of this right now. You won’t be disappointed) and topping that with thinly slice roast beef, salt and pepper, cilantro and Sarayo, for a bit of a kick (since I’m fresh out of jalapenos and wanted to try the Sarayo I recently received in my Keto Krate.)
The result? An exceptionally tasty open faced sandwich that I’ll be making often.
