New York Roast Beef on Weck Rolls

Susie D.


This sandwich originated in Buffalo, New York. It's thinly sliced roast beef served on a Kimmelweck Roll, with the name weck specifying the type of bread. This easy version transforms a kaiser roll into the salty, caraway seeded weck roll. A good deli roast beef sliced thin will work. Prepared horseradish is served along side.
