This coveted juicy and tender Roast Beef Sandwich Recipe came from a 1940’s pool hall – here is your invite to enjoy this special recipe with us!
Picture it, is the 1940’s and you’re young and in love so you get married. The wedding is finished and you and your wedding attendants head over to the pool hall for the reception. You sit down with a with a glass of beer and a juicy roast beef sandwich in a homemade bun. It’s dripping in goodness, so you have to shove a paper napkin down your dress, so you don’t get that wedding dress dirty. Oh and there’s definetely some jazz being played in the background.
My grandparents had this recipe from way back in the day, served it at their anniversary and have passed it on to their kids and grandkids. It’s one of the most coveted recipes in my box because grandpa actually signed off on it’s amazingness! This historic and nostalgic dish has its roots as a traditional English dish from the 1700’s – there’s even a song called “The Roast Beef of Old England”!
This delicious sandwich is made with love and you will feel it in each bite – it really is a winning combination of ingredients and it makes for a hearty meal! It isn’t something you can just get at your local deli counter and it’s a step up from a trip to the Arbys drive thru (although those curly fries are pretty great!).
I took the original recipe translated into Instant Pot times and voila’! With freezers full of beef, here on the farm, we like to pull this recipe out for family gatherings, old fashioned card parties, and an occasional birthday!
If this sandwich is one thing – besides from being so tasty – it’s flexible! You can switch up the toppings and the bun to customize to your liking!
Homemade sauces to try: Remoulade Sauce and Horseradish Cream
The list goes on!
In this recipe we use our Instant Pot because it is considered a multi cooker meaning it can cook food in a variety of ways. That being said, there is no right or wrong way to cook roast beef. You can use an air fryer, crock pot, or just throw it in the oven!
Chuck Roast is a larger cut of meat that can be used in pot roast, beef stew, etc. and it is cut from the shoulder area of the cow. Beef Roast on the other hand, is cut from the rear legs of the cow. While both taste great, Chuck Roast is more fatty while Beef Roast is more lean.
