Hey Folks-

 

Way back was a thread on great food for overnight racing..... one of the recipes was for a "brick sandwich" made with ribeyes, cheese and other assorted goodies.... you then squish the sandwich with a brick overnight and it condenses to make it easier for consuming on the rail in the dark.

 

Found a few older threads, but none with this particular sandwich.  I assume it's Focaccia (or similar bread), but anyone still online who posted (or remembers) that recipe ?

 

Other suggestions are welcome !

 

Thanks in advance

Ciabatta bread.

 

Make a sandwich with steak and cheese on it.  Put a brick on it to make it easier to eat on the rail.

Beef tenderloin, carmelized onions and horseradish sauce on French/Italian loaf. Flatten as necessary. Killer combination. Crew favorite year after year.

Use the brick to bang on your head when wind shuts off.

It's called a Shooter's Sandwich. Here's one recipe: http://www.guardian....ooters-sandwich

See step four above. Quadruple the brandy, drink the marinade, throw the sandwich overboard and hit yourself over the head with the brick when the wind shuts off. I'll get my coat.

I feel like I should applaud after viewing that.  That's the kind of thing that you eat and then high-five your cardiologist.

That does look good! That looks better than anything I have eaten during a race, and I have been on some boats where we fed well!

More-or-less same idea as Beef Wellington: crust, beef, duxelles.   Just with bread rather than pastry crust and steak rather than tenderloin.

 

Worthy of a try.

You can also just go with anything that is called a "Pannini"  basically you just want any bread that is fairly absorbant but also has some solid body and crust.  So a Pannin, Ciabbata, Foccacia or a fresh Baugette all will do.

 

the idea is that you take what would normally go in a stew but rather than cooking the meat in the stew (though you could as long as you didn't cube it) you cook it flat and as tender as possible  then you take the stew and the meat, put it on the sandwich and put it under a press of some sort (sandwich shops have a toasting press for this) and let the liquid penetrate into the bread, but by pressing it, you restore structure to it.  Then by letting it cool you let the fats in the food gel (nicer than coagulate) and that adds further structure.

We built a Shooter's Sandwich last night.  One loaf of Italian bread, two T-bones minus bones, some crumbled bleu cheese, mushrooms, shallots, and a bit of grey poupon.

The mushroom and shallot saute produced a pretty amazing aroma.

You would get shot using Dijon mustard but you can use a french loaf dugout like the boule.  Colman's mustard is a must and the prime rib pan fried with cognac and peppercorns is classic.

It was a bit too heavy on the bleu cheese. Much of that gets pushed out to the edges upon compression, so when you slice across the loaf, the ends of the slice, where the excess bleu cheese ends up, want to break off anyway. It was damn good, but not a finished product. Needs refinement.

Will try without bleu cheese next time, perhaps with some kind of melted cheese in its place. Not sure what will replace the mustard. Ribeyes are a must for next time.

You could bake those ingredients into the bread.
