Sweet beef sandwiches
Marinated Beef Sandwiches
Taste of Home Celebrations Cookbook Copyright 2005
1 ½ cups water
¾ cup packed dark brown sugar
¾ cup soy sauce I used low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 small onions, sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
1 boneless beef rump roast (about 4 pounds)
12 to 14 sandwich rolls, split
In a gallon-size resealable plastic bag, combine the first seven ingredients; add roast. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally. Transfer roast and marinade to a Dutch oven. Cover and bake at 325 degrees for 2 ½ to 3 hours or until meat is tender. I cooked it in the crockpot. Thinly slice; serve beef and juice on rolls.
Yield: 12-14 servings
This was pretty good and made a nice dinner last night but it won't be the last marinated beef recipe I try. I think it was a bit sweeter than it needed to be, for a sandwich. It would have been better suited over rice.
I used the 'natural' beef for this. I didn't notice a difference in taste. They've been having some good sales on the natural meats - actual sales, not marked down for quick sale. Although quite of bit of it does end up marked down. Even when I was in a larger grocery store in Harrisburg, I noticed a lot of it was marked down. Shoppers need to start paying the premium so that they'll keep supplying it. I paid full price for natural ground beef last week so I'm doing my part.
Tonight I plan next week's menu and I'm really going to try to spend as little as I can on groceries for next week. We'll see how that goes.
Blast From The Past: Hamburger Special from June 2006, another slow-cooked beef sandwich. I've been wanting to make these again.
Question of the Day: When did you last eat a sandwich? What kind of sandwich was it?
