I modeled this sandwich after one I enjoyed at a little hole-in-the-wall coffee shop in Cardiff by the Sea, in Southern California. It was wonderful and so is this!
- 4 slices thick sourdough bread
- 1⁄3 lb thinly sliced roast beef (I use rare beef purchased at the deli.)
- 4 slices monterey jack with jalapeno pepper cheese, generous slices
- 1 teaspoon canned diced green chilis
- melted butter
- Lay sliced bread on bread board.
- Paint tops of bread slices generously with melted butter.
- Flip bread slices over.
- Spread mayonnaise generously on each slice of bread.
- Assemble two sliced bread pieces with roast beef, cheese and 1/2 teaspoon diced green chilies.
- Sprinkle with salt. Top sandwiches with other two slices of bread, mayo side down, butter side up.
- Grill sandwiches on medium high heat griddle, with lots of butter on the grill beneath, until bottoms of sandwiches are golden brown and cheese begins melting.
- Carefully flip sandwiches over using two utensils and grill again until bottom bread is also golden brown and cheese is melted.
- Remove two sandwiches from griddle, slice each in half and arrange on two plates. Garnish plates.
- Serve with dill pickles, yellow mustard, prepared horseradish and lots of napkins.
- French fries, onion rings and cole slaw make wonderful additions to this meal.
I made these for my husband and son as I don't like jalapeno pepper cheese. My family thought this was just OK. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't use the butter or add salt. For some reason they like jalapeno pepper cheese but they didn't care for it melted on this sandwich.
I've made these sandwiches a couple of times this year during football season and everyone loved them!
made this a few weeks ago. great sammie! Only change - i used horsey sauce packets from arby's in place of straight mayo to get rid of them. YUM!
