Pickled Radishes:
Sandwich Build:
Homemade Roast Beef:

Directions

Sandwich Build:

For the au jus: Heat the oil over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Add the peppercorns, salt, thyme, garlic, rosemary and shallots. Cook the shallots, stirring occasionally, until they become translucent, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the sherry and simmer, a few minutes. Add the stock and simmer, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and strain the liquid. Keep warm. 

For the pickled radishes: Simmer 1/2 cup water, the vinegar, sugar, coriander seeds, salt, star anise, bay leaf and garlic. After 10 minutes of simmering, pour the mixture over the radishes in a heat-proof container and cool. 

For the sandwich build: Place the bottom halves of the rolls on a work surface. Place the sliced Homemade Roast Beef on the bottom. Top with 1 slice gruyere each, some pickled radishes and watercress. Cover with the tops of the rolls. Cut each sandwich in half, dunk into the au jus and realize sometimes leftovers are just better.

Homemade Roast Beef:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Mix the rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper and garlic in a small bowl. Rub the mixture all over the roast, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate, about 20 minutes. 

Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over high heat. Wipe off the excess garlic and herbs and add the roast to the pan. Sear the roast on all sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the roast to a roasting pan with a rack. Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 125 degrees F, about 50 minutes. Transfer the roast to a cutting board and let rest, about 10 minutes. Thinly slice the roast and serve.
