Just a simple roast beef panini, caramelized onion and provolone cheese sandwich with a side of cole slaw.
Earlier this Summer I was the lucky winner of an Imusa Panini Press from Vianney over at Sweet Life Bake. I was thrilled, because if you remember from my Raspberry Chipotle Roast Beef, until now my only way to make these wonderful warm gooey sandwiches was to use my grill pan and a brick covered with foil.
Even though it actually worked pretty well, my new Imusa works like a charm. Thank you so much Vianney.
If you’ve not visited her blog, you must. She lives in Texas and her blog focuses on Texas cuisine and wonderful recipes from Mexico. And does she love Tex-Mex? Oh yes, and she takes pleasure in providing great Tex-Mex fusion recipes. LOVE her site.
A couple weeks ago I made my Mom’s Sunday Pot Roast for dinner. It’s the ultimate comfort food from my childhood. As kids we always looked forward to roast beef sandwiches on the days following the feast. They were made of cold shredded pot roast on plain white bread, smeared with some Miracle Whip, a dab of sweet pickle relish and a leaf of crisp iceberg lettuce.
I somewhat followed this lead for my first official Imusa Panini experience, except I used Rosemary Sourdough bread, provolone and onions. No Miracle Whip or sweet relish…okay, not even close. But I did know that the roast beef was going to be the main ingredient.
So simple. So delicious. The savory melt in your mouth chunks of slow roasted beef, the warm runny cheese, the sweet onions and the toasted rosemary sourdough bread still soft in the middle. Fabulous! And did I mention dinner was ready in about ten minutes? You can’t beat that during a busy work week.
Next up, I’m going to follow a lead from Vianney. She just posted an avocado grilled cheese sandwich. You should head over and see what she did.
I see many Panini sandwiches in our future. What’s your favorite Panini sandwich to make?
