A few years ago I had the most amazing roast beef sandwich at a restaurant, so tonight I recreated it. We have roast beef every Sunday for dinner. Always roast beef, always done the same way. Since we’re only a small family of four, we generally have a fair amount of leftovers. Call me crazy, but there’s only so many times I can eat plain ol’ roast beef and mashed potatoes with gravy as leftovers, so tonight was a welcome change. Plus this sandwich included my favorite thing ever: goat cheese. Goat cheese makes everything better. Just give me a spoon (I’m not even kidding…).
Lets begin by roasting some garlic. Drizzle a little olive oil on some peeled cloves of garlic and pop ’em in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes.
When the garlic comes out it’ll be a beautiful golden color. Mince it. Make sure you don’t leave any big hunks. Nobody likes a mouthful of garlic- moderation in all things, people.
Mix minced garlic with goat cheese. I used my stand mixer for this step.
Thinly slice half a red onion. Toss it in a pan in balsamic vinegar and a little olive oil.
Once your onions have caramelized, take them off the heat.
Slice beef to your desired thickness.
Prepare your veggies.
Layer goat cheese, arugula, roast beef, onions, and tomatoes on a sliced mini baguette. Enjoy![amd-zlrecipe-recipe:65]
