Prep Time: 15 mins | Cook Time: approx. 1hr 20 mins | Makes: 16 Sliders

Ingredients

For the Beef and Mushrooms
4 lb sirloin roast
6-8 portabella mushrooms
salt and pepper

For the Au Jus
1 medium onion, sliced
3 cups beef broth
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste

For the Horseradish Cream
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tbsp prepared horseradish
1 tbsp chives, chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt to taste

For the Sandwiches
2 baguettes
8 slices provolone, cut in half

Method

1. Preheat oven (or BBQ) to 450 degrees F.
2. Using a paper towel pat dry the roast beef and season all sides with salt and pepper. Place in roasting pan
3. Remove stem from mushroom and season both sides with salt and pepper. Place in separate roasting pan.
4. Place the roast beef in the oven and cook until internal temperature reaches 125 degrees F for medium rare or 135 degree F for medium. Once it has reached temperature, remove from pan and let rest 20-25 minutes.
5. Place mushrooms in oven and roast for 20 minutes flipping them at the 10 minute mark.

To make Au Jus:
1. Place the beef roasting pan on top of stove (or BBQ) over medium high heat and add onion, beef broth, Worcestershire and soy sauce. Cook, scraping up the dripping until onions are soft and broth is simmering. Season with salt and pepper. Strain, reserving onions for sandwiches.
(Too make a meatless version, use the mushroom pan and vegetable stock.)

To Make Horseradish Cream:
1. Combine all ingredient in bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.

Assembling the Sandwiches
1. Cut each baguette into 8 sandwiches. Butter both top and bottom pieces and place cut side down on a foil lined cookie sheet. Toast in you 450 degree F oven (or BBQ) for about 5-7 minutes. Flip the bottoms and remove the tops.
2. Thinly slice both the beef and mushrooms.
3. Pile sliced beef, mushrooms and onions ( or whatever combination your guest prefers) on top of bottom piece of bread and top with slice of cheese. Place back in oven for a couple minutes until cheese has melted.
4. Spread horseradish cream on top piece of bread and place on the bottoms. Serve with Au Jus. Enjoy!

Meaty Mushroom Philly Cheesesteaks

I use meaty portabello and white/brown button mushrooms here. It would be delicious with one variety of mushrooms but I welcome the textural and flavour differences that comes from mixing a couple types.

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 40-50 minutes | Makes: 4 sandwiches

Ingredients

Cheese Sauce
2 cups shredded extra sharp cheddar
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 tsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 (354ml) can 2% evaporated milk

Mushrooms Onions & Peppers
2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp olive oil
8 heaping cups sliced mushrooms
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 tbsp olive oil
2 red peppers, seeds removed and sliced
1 large sweet onion

To Serve
4 soft hoagies

Method

For the Cheese Sauce
Place a small pot with 1-2″ of water on the stove and place a bowl snugly into that pot ensuring the base of the bowl isn’t touching the water. This is a makeshift double boiler. Add all the cheese sauce ingredients to the bowl and turn stove on to med-high heat. Keep an eye on it and give it a good whisk every so often until the cheese is melted and smooth. Keep warm on low.

For the Mushrooms, Onions & Peppers
Melt the butter and oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat on the stove. Add the sliced mushrooms, spreading them out as much as you can and let their liquids release, mixing every few minutes. Once the liquid reduces and the pan is dry again, let the mushrooms sit untouched for 5-6 minutes so they can develop a nice golden brown colour. Give them a mix and let them sit again, untouched, for 4-5 minutes or until they are all browned and crisped up. Add salt and stir for another 1-2 minutes. Remove mushrooms from the pan and set aside. Add the sliced onions and peppers into the hot pan with another 2 tbsp of olive oil. Let them cook, stirring only occasionally, until starting to turn golden brown. About 6-8 minutes.

Brush your hoagies with some oil or melted butter and toast/grill until light golden brown. Top each with 1/4 of the mushrooms, 1/4 of the red peppers and a few good glugs of the cheese sauce. Squish together and DIG IN. I dare you not to make a mess.

Grilled Portobello & Poblano Tacos with Cotija Crema

I took the Blenditarian Pledge because this Blend & Extend concept is seriously legit!  I love mushrooms already, but I had no idea how packed with nutrients they are.  There are so many ways you can incorporate them into meals you already make, like tacos!  I made these Beef & Portobello Tacos with Cotija Crema for my first go at the #blendandextend concept.
