Recipe Thursday-Berk’s Loaded Grilled Roast Beef Sandwich

Posted on February 16th, 2017 | Posted in Recipes, Sandwich, Supplier of the Month

We love roast beef and this sandwich from The Mediterranean Dish caught our eye because it’s slightly different than a standard roast beef sandwich with the typical horseradish and arugula on it. The caramelized red onion with bell peppers was delicious and very versatile for other applications and the sharp cheddar added the perfect contrasting flavor to this warm sandwich.

Yield 4 Servings

  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced (00683, 5#)
  • 2 green bell peppers, cored, sliced (00834, 5#)
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped (02619, 5#)
  • Olive oil (992055, 3LTR)
  • Seasoned salt (CQS020, GAL)
  • ¼ cup brandy
  • 8 slices good French boule bread or similar
  • Unsalted butter, softened (880030, 36/1#)
  • 6 oz shredded mozzarella cheese (775564, 4/5#, Foremost Farms)
  • 6 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (774101, 2/5#, AMPI)
  • 1 lb thinly sliced Berk’s Roast Beef divided into four equal portions (110098, 2/5#)
  1. In a large heavy skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on high. Add the onions and saute for five minutes then add the green peppers, garlic and a dash of seasoned salt. Saute for another 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are tender and onions have slightly caramelized. Reduce the heat to medium; add the brandy and cook until it evaporates. Remove from heat, and roughly divide the vegetables into four equal portions.
  2. Lightly butter the back of each bread slice, if desired.
  3. To assemble the first roast beef sandwich, take one slice of bread and top it with some of the shredded sharp cheddar and mozzarella. Now add the sauteed vegetables, roast beef. Top the roast beef with more shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese. Finally add another slice of bread to top the sandwich. Repeat with the remaining three sandwiches
  4. Grill the sandwiches, each, in a panini grill, electric plate grill, or a stove-top grill for 2-4 minutes until cheese is melted. If using a stove-top grill, carefully flip the sandwiches over mid-way through grilling. Press with a spatula.
  5. Remove from heat. Serve with your favorite chips and beer! Enjoy!
