Pit Beef Sandwich off the minimax

Thatgrimguy Posts: 4,712


I picked up a prime bottom round roast over at Whole Foods and reverse seared it on the minimax. 

Smoked at 225 and seared at 600ish.

Used @Eggcelsior tiger sauce recipe from brisket camp a few years ago.  And built it on a griddle toasted Kaiser roll.

    Looks good but I've never had tomato on a pit beef sandwich?  Tiger sauce is just mayo and extra hot horseradish mixed. Slice the beef as thin as possible. Enjoy!

    Not in Eggcelsior’s recipe. He adds a number of extra things that zip it up quite a bit.  Some lemon juice, garlic, and old bay if I recall.

    That may be true but here in B'more it's just mayo and Xtra hot horseradish.

    I’ll have to let Eggcelsior know.  Maybe he’s never been to B’more.

    Here is the recipe @Eggcelsior sent me awhile back, turns out great:


    For the meat, take a sirloin roast/cap and season it with: 
    1 part black pepper
    1 part salt
    1/2 part of each:
    garlic powder
    paprika
    chile powder
    oregano
    onion powder
    1/4 part cayenne or to taste(I go with 1/2 part)

    All that is scale-able, based on how much meat you are doing. I did just under 10 lbs, so 1 part was around 1/4 cup

    For the tiger sauce:
    1 cup mayo
    1 cup horseradish
    3 tbsp lemon juice
    4-5 garlic cloves
    s&p to taste
    cayenne to taste
    creole or old bay seasoning, around 1/2 tsp or eliminate salt and go with more to taste.

    Make the tiger sauce and let it sit overnight for best flavor

    Rub the beef and place in a food saver bag then SV for 12-16 hours at 131.
    Dry the meat after the bath, reserving the juices. Keep the juices warm on the stove serve with the meat. Sear the meat on all sides for 30 sec to 1 min each until you get the appearance you like(since the meat is already cooked). Slice thinly and serve with thin sliced onions on a kaiser-like roll or crusty bread.

    If you don't have a SV, I'd recommend reverse searing the meat. Traditionally, it is grilled direct over medium high heat using top or bottom round until medium rare in the middle.

    Chaps is ok; most redeeming quality is that it’s in a strip club parking lot. Bakers or Pioneer are better. Chaps tiger sauce is meh, though. Garlic and some spice really make it better.

    Nice lookin' sammich!

    And, I'll cast another vote for @Eggcelsior 's tiger sauce. It's been a few years since I had the pit beef sandwich he makes, but still remember how frikkin' good that sauce made it.

    Bakers is just ok.  Never had Pioneer.  Try Bull on the Turf in Edgewood on 40. You won't be sorry. To each their own on the Tiger sauce recipe.  I prefer the original.
