Brazilian Roast Beef Sammie (Bauru)

Andy Anderson !


I’m in the test kitchen… The sun is streaming through the windows.

I’m in the mood for a sammie…
I found some small French rolls left over from a catering job…
A bit more rummaging about…
A nice beef roast (promising)…
Various blocks of cheese…
Some fresh tomatoes…
A plan was forming in my brain… A Brazilian Bauru Beef Sammie.

I’ll need a good sauce to compliment the beef, but we’ll talk about that later.

If you ever find yourself in São Paulo, you have to try one of the “authentic” Bauru sandwiches.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
