Roast Beef With Crispy Shallots

Roast Beef With Crispy Shallots

The second meat at my meat slicer party last weekend was roast beef. Roast beef is insanely simple to make at home, especially when you have a meat slicer to cut it paper thin. If you make this same exact recipe and try and cut it with a knife it is going to come out a little chewy unless you really are able to cut it very thin. Anyways, roast beef is roast beef right? Yea it was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and really fresh, but still just roast beef. What made these sandwiches truly memorable though, was the crispy shallots and hint of horseradish mayo, along with fresh baked onion rolls from a local bakery near my friends house who hosted the party.

Crispy Cheese Gnocchi with Spicy Ketchup

Crispy Cheese Gnocchi with Spicy Ketchup

It makes sense to dip your gnocchi in ketchup since gnocchi is made of mostly potato. But these weren’t just any gnocchi, they were marbled with a sharp cheddar, and perfumed with a splash of truffle oil. And it wasn’t just your ordinary ketchup either, it was fortified with some garlic and olive oil, and spiked with a nice hit of sriracha. These cheese gnocchi were nice and crispy on the outside, but extremely delicate and soft on the inside and exploding with flavor on every bite.
