Beef on Weck Sandwiches
To do justice to Buffalo’s signature sandwich, we worked our way from the outside in.
Why This Recipe Works
This sandwich, popular in Buffalo, N.Y., features thinly sliced roast beef piled inside a salty, seasoned roll. Rather than making the traditional kummelweck rolls from scratch, we brush a cornstarch “glue” on store-bought kaiser rolls and sprinkle on salt and caraway seeds. Cooking the eye-round roast to medium and allowing a long rest time makes it much easier to slice thin. We toss the sliced beef with jus and horseradish before assembling the sandwiches to bring all the elements together.
