The signature sandwich from one of my favourite Canadian cities - the recipe from one of my favourite Canadian chefs, Cristine Cushing! If you don't want to go through the long process of cooking & smoking the brisket, just use the Montreal Spice Mix as a rub on a roast. Serve piled high slivers of smoked meat between 2 slices of rye bread with loads of mustard & a dill pickle on the side!
I adopted this recipe from Mean Chef. This recipe I found on Epicurious. It is fabulous. The sauce itself has lots of possibilities on its own. It is great on pork tenderloin and roast chicken. When raspberries are in season, I make a whole bunch of the sauce and freeze it.
It is generally believed that the Cuban cigar workers who migrated to the Tampa, FL area/Ybor City back in the early 1900's brought the Cuban sandwich to the US. Originally called the "mixto" or mixed sandwich, the Cuban, as it is known today, became a workingman's lunch for those employed in the cigar industry. Note--if you can't get sour oranges in your area, try equal parts of orange and grapefruit juice or 2 parts orange juice to 1 part lemon juice and 1 part lime juice.
Yes, you can make authentic gyros at home --> the texture and flavor of this meat is as good as you get in a good Greek restaurant, without the traditional rotating spit.. but this is just the recipe and technique for making the meat, for I'm assuming you know the drill on making the classic gyro sandwich - stuff the meat in a grilled pita with sliced tomatoes, onions and tzaziki sauce.. Enjoy!
We used to take our kids for one last summer camping trip to the Pacific Ocean during the weekend before school started each fall. One of our favorite towns was Seaside, Oregon. And in Seaside, there was (and maybe still is...I don't know as I haven't been back there in over 10 years) a great little family-owned deli that served the most scrumptous sandwiches and soups. My favorite sandwich was their Garden Sandwich. YUM YUM YUM! I grabbed a take-out menu during one of our trips so that I could make the sandwich at home---no reason to wait another year to enjoy such a great sandwich!
I love panini's and this one sounds great. From Every Day with Rachael Ray June/July 2008.
"A panini is a supertasty sammie because it's crunchy on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. If you're not a blue cheese fan, use your favorite cheese instead."
Can be made in a frying pan or grill (the George Foreman type) I found this recipe on the net, changed it a bit and at the moment it is an addiction!
I like it brushed with the olive oil but my preference is to use mayonnaise and use this method now all the time ever since I made Dawnab's Recipe #108522
If you have an electric panini maker then use it for this, if not you need two skillets, one heavy cast iron skillet or similar for the top to weigh down the panini. This makes a perfect lunch or light dinner. Plan ahead the chicken needs to marinade for 1 hour before cooking....this works with a George Foreman grill, just make certain to hold down on the top lid firmly while cooking to ensure toasting the bread, or maybe you are lucky enough to own a panini maker, then you will not need the heavy skillet for the top. Double the recipe if desired. You will love this!
