Slow roasted balsamic beef waffle sandwich

When I take the time to make sandwiches, I want to make gourmet, out-of-the-ordinary sandwiches. Since I purchased a waffle maker not too long ago, I decided to make a waffle sandwich, inspired by my visit to the famous Bruxie in Los Angeles. This slow roasted balsamic beef sandwich ended up being the best, most delicious sandwich I have made so far. It is a must try!

  5. 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  6. 2 cups beef stock

  8. 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  9. 1 bay leaf
  10. 2 tbsp creamed horseradish
  11. 4 tbsp creme fraiche or mayo
Pickled onions
  1. 1 red onions, finely sliced
  2. 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  3. 2 tsp sugar
  4. 1 tsp salt
  1. 1 1/3 cup flour
  2. 4 tsp baking powder
  3. 1/2 tsp salt

  5. 2 eggs, yolks and whites separated
  6. 1/2 cup butter, melted
  7. 1 3/4 cup milk
  1. cilantro leaves
  1. Prepare and braise the beef.
  2. Shred the beef and let it rest in the braising liquid. Keep warm in the oven, which you can turn off, until you are ready to serve.

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

Braising beef or any protein for that matter, takes a long time to complete, but it’s actually very easy to do. The basic idea is to put everything in a pot or baking dish and let it cook in low heat over a long period of time. This allows the fat and muscles to break down, making the beef incredibly tender.

I only made half the recipe so the chunk of beef wasn’t as large, allowing it to finish braising quicker. My beef was tender after cooking for a total of 3 hours; I was able to shred it by just gently wiggling a fork!

Now for the waffles, I have tried different batters before but I found this one to be the best so far. The batter doesn’t call for any sugar or vanilla extract, making it appropriate for a savory sandwich. The addition of a whipped egg white also yields a light airy waffle.

Now I tried the beef by itself and the waffle by itself, but once all the components were put together…holy moly is this sandwich finger-lickin’ good! The pickled onions added the needed crunch and tartness while the creamed horseradish added a little spiciness and creaminess to the sandwich. The beef, oh the beef, tasted even better than it smelled and was o so tender. I am a sandwich fanatic, but I have to say, this is probably the best I’ve ever made. Enjoy!
