Roast Beef & Stout Sammies
They call traditional English stout “steak in a can”. It’s heady stuff, so “they” may have a point. That said, cooking with stout is always equal measures filling & fulfilling. So, imagine our surprise and smiles when our bakers decided to drizzle a tempting stout glazing over our already mouthwatering Grace Baking Ciabatta Roll Roast Beef Sammies. In short, their eyes lit up, jaws dropped, and a line-up formed outside our test kitchens. The contrasts created between succulent roast beef, fresh Provolone, onion and the stout beer glaze defies description! I wonder what our bakers will stumble across next?
- 4 Grace® Baking White Ciabatta Rolls
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
- 1 yellow onion, sliced
- ½ cup stout beer
- 8 slices Provolone cheese
- 1 lb. thick-sliced roast beef
- Stout Glaze (recipe follows)
- 1 cup stout beer
- 6 tbsp. butter
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. dried mustard
- 1 tsp. onion powder
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 350˚F. Slice ciabatta rolls in half and set aside.
- Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onion, and sauté until soft. Add stout beer and continue to cook over medium heat until liquid is absorbed (approximately 5 minutes).
- Make Stout Glaze. Combine stout beer, butter, brown sugar, dried mustard, onion powder and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until sugar dissolves. Raise heat to medium and allow mixture to simmer until liquid is reduced to a thick syrup.
- Assemble sandwiches. Line bottom of a large baking dish with ciabatta roll bottoms. Layer each with a slice of Provolone, roast beef, a scoop of the onion/mushroom mixture, a second slice of Provolone, and the ciabatta lids. Pour Stout Glaze over each roll. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.
