Leftovers: Beef Sandwich

The chuck roast was divine, but we had a lot leftover. Instead of completely reinventing the meal, I out it between some bread. I added some spicy mustard, melty gruyere and dinner was served!

Here's what I did -

Ingredients: - leftover roast beef - 1 cup grated gruyere - 1 baguette, halved & sliced down the middle - 1 tablespoon sambal (garlic chili paste) - 1 tablespoon dijon mustard - redleaf lettuce - thin slices of sweet bell pepper - garnish with pickled jalapeƱos

Method: - warm the leftover beef in its au jus - toast the bread under the broiler until just crisp to the touch, no browning (yet) - mix the sambal & mustard. To tame the heat, mix in a little mayo or creme fraische. - slather the bottom piece of bread with the sambal-mustard mixture, layer on beef & cheese - drizzle olive oil on the other piece of bread - put under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly - top with jalapeƱos, lettuce & bell peppers - take a big bite - you earned this!

What's your favorite way to use up leftovers? Do you ever have roast beef? After this sammy, I plan on making extra next time!
