Awesome Beef Stuffed Artisan Rolls

I made this up the other day when I was experimenting with hollowing out a French loaf, and stuffing it with different ingredients. And I thought, why not use a artisan roll instead. Hey, what could go wrong with that idea?

So, four artisan rolls, and two hours later, I came up with this baby.

I love the way the sauce seeps into the bread to make an ooey, gooey delight. Extra napkins are a must.

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

How to Make Awesome Beef Stuffed Artisan Rolls

Step-by-Step

  • 1Gather your ingredients.
  • 2Chef’s Tip: I chose a rustic round artisan roll with a nice crust for this recipe. We have a bakery close by, and these had just come out of the oven… Yummy.
  • 3Slice the top off of the rolls, and scoop out the filling.
  • 4Chef’s Note: Reserve the filling for another use, or do what I did. Put a bit of olive oil with some seasonings in a small bowl, and then dip the bread in and eat it while you’re working.
  • 5Heat up a sauté pan over medium heat, and then add the grapeseed oil.
  • 6Add the bell peppers.
  • 7Sauté until softened, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 8Add the cubed beef.
  • 9Continue to cook until the beef is cooked through, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • 10Add the cumin, cayenne, salt, and pepper, and stir to combine.
  • 11Whisk the flour into the beef stock.
  • 12Add the liquid to the sauté pan.
  • 13Chef's Note: Use a wooden spoon to scrape up any of the brown bits (fonds) that formed on the bottom of the pan.
  • 14Stir until the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  • 15Bring the mixture up to a simmer, and then lower the heat to medium low.
  • 16Continue to simmer and stir the mixture until it thickens, and the liquid is reduced by twenty percent, about 15 to 18 minutes.
  • 17Chef's Note: While it's simmering, do your final seasoning. Just a bit at a time, until you like what you taste.
  • 18Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 450f (232c)
  • 19Add the cheddar and pepper jack cheeses.
  • 20Stir to combine.
  • 21Fill the rolls to overflowing with the mixture.
  • 22Chef’s Note: This is a rustic dish, so it should look rustic.
  • 23Top each with 1/4 cup of the Gruyere cheese.
  • 24Place the rolls and the tops into the preheated oven.
  • 25Chef’s Note: The tops should be separate from the rolls. Lay them to the side of the beef-filled rolls.
  • 26Chef’s Tip: Keep an eye on the tops, because they will brown before the rolls are ready. Remove them when they are properly browned, about 3 minutes.
  • 27Remove the beef-filled rolls when the cheese is bubbly and beginning to brown, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • 28Cut them open, or serve them whole… and attack with a fork and several napkins. Enjoy.
  • 29Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
