#25 – Roast Beef, Smoked Gouda, and Barbecue Sauce on a Pretzel Bread

Ingredients

-Sliced roast beef
-Smoked Gouda cheese

-Stubb’s Original Bar-B-Q sauce
-Pretzel roll



Christian: There’s not a lot to say about this one, having only four ingredients. The roast beef was fine, although I wish we had gotten it straight from the deli. I can’t remember if I had ever used Gouda on a sandwich before, but after this one, I will again. The pretzel bread was okay, if a little chewy. And just like with Sandwich #10, we used Stubb’s BBQ sauce. It still was rather tangy, but I felt like I needed to slather the meat with it to actually make the sauce stand out.

Overall, the sandwich was fine, if unremarkable. Just like this review, I guess.

★★★


Susannah: I love it when a sandwich comes together. This one just makes sense: harmonious flavors and textures. We continued to take a gamble with the Stubbs BBQ sauce. It was peppery, very smoky, and a little thinner than other sauces, but it packed a punch. The smoked Gouda was a great choice for this sandwich, creamy and blended well with the roast beef. I think the only stumbling block is finding the right pretzel bread. It has to fit the sandwich, and not be gummy or too thick. In this case, the bite of the Stubbs cut through it all and it made for a tasty dish.

★★★½
