I thought I was making Beef Souvlaki the other night but it turned out super-duper tough. :( I resurrected the meat by generally following this recipe. (Sorry, I didn't do the onion or garlic powder.) I used a food processor to process my marinated beef, added chopped dill pickles with some juice, chopped red onion and enough mayo to make it spread. Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper for the win. Tastes great on a fork or crackers, I think a sandwich would be divine. Thank you!

Very good. I used leftover roast veal and added French mustard as well as the horseradish sauce.

Thank you so much. I can remember my mom, about 55-60 yrs. ago, packing lunches for my dad and me with this filling. I always looked forward to it and have tried to duplicate it over the years, but just couldn't find the "missing ingredient". It was the horseradish!! Made some tonight with leftover steak and it is wonderful (although I was a bit heavy with the garlic). Thanks for bringing back great memories.

This was a good spread, and a great way to use up a bit of leftover steak. I had 5 oz of meat, so I cut the mayo to 1/3 cup. I had a great garlic sauce in the fridge, so I subbed it for the horseradish, which I didn't have. I would increase the onion powder to 1/4 teaspoon, and next time will add the horseradish. Great spread, thanks for posting.

Great use of that last bit of beef! I had only 8oz. of beef, so I cut the recipe in half. I omitted the salt, used garlic powder and onion powder, and increased the horseradish to 2 T. (We like it kicked up a bit!) Have eaten it on crackers and have made sandwiches. Thanks so much for sharing. This is a keeper!

Yum! This is wonderful! We used leftover pot roast, and it came out great. We used garlic powder and onion powder, because garlic salt and onion salt aren't something we ever use. We plan to do this again soon, perhaps using more horseradish. Definitely a keeper.

This is a great way to use up leftover beef! I decreased the amount of salt due to our preference and used garlic and onion powder. DH liked it, but thought it missed something, so I threw in some pickle relish and a dab of mustard and he gave it a thumbs up. Thanks for the great idea for sandwiches or snacks!
