Now, I know you're wondering what I made for the contest. Well, you may have a clue since there's a big ol' photo of it at the top of this post. And now you want to know how I made it, right? Of course you do! Because it looks delicious and you love delicious things.
This sandwich is inspired by a Banh Mi, a Vietnamese sandwich of grilled meat and pickled veggies on a crusty baguette. My version slow-roasts an inexpensive cut of steak in a rich mustard sauce until it is falling-apart tender, then tops it with crisp and cool vegetables, as well as a creamy horseradish spread. It's an amazing balance of flavors, textures, and temperatures. And the fact that it's mostly made in a #Crockpot means it is super, crazy easy.
- about 2 lbs top round steak, cut into four to six pieces
- 1 small onion, sliced
- 3 Tablespoons Saucy Mama Smoky Garlic Mustard
- 1 Tablespoon prepared horseradish
- 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 2 carrots, julienned
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 Portugese rolls
- about 1/3 of an English cucumber, thinly-sliced
- chopped scallions
- Saucy Mama Creamy Horseradish
Grease your slow cooker. Toss onion slices in the bottom of the Crockpot and place the pieces of steak on top. In a small bowl, mix together the mustard, horseradish, Worcestershire, and red wine vinegar. Pour over the steak, flipping each piece to make sure the sauce coats both sides of the meat. Set your slow cooker to high and set the timer for four to six hours.
Now, to make the quick-pickled carrots: in a bowl, stir the sugar and salt into the vinegar until dissolved. Toss the carrots in the vinegar mixture and cover tightly. Let the carrots sit on the counter to marinate at room temperature while your steak is slow-cooking.
When your steak is fork-tender, slice open your rolls and toast until golden and crispy. Slather them in Saucy Mama's Creamy Horseradish (this stuff is cool, spicy, and addictive! But if you like a less spicy sandwich, just mix the creamy horseradish with a bit of mayo before adding to the bread). Top with some of the roasted steak and onions, then cucumber slices, a few forkfuls of the pickled carrots, and a sprinkle of chopped scallions.
