Book Binder's Beef Sandwich
Some things never go out of taste style, and for me that's a perfectly squashed juicy beefy book binder's sandwich! And, it's a perfect sandwich to eat with our beefy tee, Well Done, Done Well.
That's me acting beefy in our latest design...getting ready to drip some juicy beef on my shirt.
Make it as beefy as you like, serve with pickles and you've got yourself a classic.

Excerpted from Escoffier!
Cut off the crusts from the ends of a sandwich loaf leaving at least 1/2 inch of bread on them. Grill a thick steak, well seasoned with salt and pepper; allow it to cool then spread it with mustard and horseradish.
Butter the crusts, put the steak between them and tie up with string. Wrap it in several sheets of clean absorbent paper, place in a press and tighten it gradually before leaving it for 30 minutes. When removed it will be seen that the inside of the sandwich will be saturated with the meat juice which the outside crust has prevented from escaping. The string and paper are removed and the sandwich is then wrapped in greaseproof paper or placed in a box with a lid.
