Beef on Weck

Since we spent a few weeks in Buffalo/Rochester, NY this summer we got to have all our favorite regional foods. One of the items from the Buffalo area is Beef on Weck, which is short for Beef on a Kimmelweck Roll. A Kimmelweck Roll is a hearty roll topped with coarse salt and caraway seeds. It give the roll a salty/savory flavor. These are available in the Rochester/Buffalo region in just about every bakery section. Top your thinly sliced steak with the mayo-horseradish sauce and some au jus (if you wish).

Verdict: I love these sandwiches. Our steak was medium-rare but cook it to your liking. Same with the mayonnaise and horseradish blend. Adjust the amount of horseradish in your sauce to your liking. My family tends to be a bit heavier on the horseradish but taste and adjust as you go.

        Oh, yes, I couldn’t agree more. The last time I was “home” was 7 years ago. I miss it a lot. It still was the best time in life.
