Shaved Smoked Prime Rib and Cheddar Sandwich

[FTC Standard Disclaimer]  I received no compensation for this post.

This sandwich is killer.  (I know that no one says that anymore but I'm old and I figure that trends are cyclical and eventually it will be in fashion again so bear with me.)

It starts with thinly sliced, smoked ribeye and is topped with smoked cheddar, caramelized onions, and horseradish sauce on top of a sesame seed bun. 

Shaved ribeye roast and cheddar sandwich kind of like an Arby's Beef and Cheddar....only better.

The star of this sandwich is the leftovers from our holiday smoked prime rib roast. 

Whole beef ribeye
It all started with a whole USDA choice ribeye.  I trimmed it into a chunk for cheesesteak sandwiches, 4 steaks, and a rib roast.
 I tied the roast and dry-brined it using our NMT Umami Steak Seasoning recipe.  I didn't measure how much I used, but I would guess about a half-cup.  I put it on a rack, loosely covered it, and placed it in the fridge for 12 hours.

Jack and Coke Steak

[Standard Disclaimer]  We proudly choose Certified Angus Beef® Brand as the official beef sponsor for Nibble Me This because of their 10 science-based quality standards and their commitment to providing the best Angus beef.

In late October, I was fortunate enough to be a judge at the Jack Daniels World Championship Invitational Barbecue.  "The Jack," as it is known in the BBQ competition world, is one of the premier contests.  It is like one of the Majors in golf or Grand Slams in tennis.                 

Jack Daniel's Jack and Coke Steak featuring Certified Angus Beef Brand from Food City.

This delicious steak is a tribute to my trip to The Jack for a couple of reasons.

  • While at the contest, I got to see friends, Chef Michael Ollier and Bryan Schaaf, from Certified Angus Beef® Brand.
  • The base recipe is from Jack Daniel's.
  • I used Jack Daniel's Charcoal Briquets and Smoker Blocks.

Each judge got a guest bag including things like Jack Daniels Charcoal Briquets & Smoker Blocks.
Each judge received a generous SWAG bag, and these were just two of the things in it.
I saw the simple recipe for Jack and Coke Steaks on the charcoal bag and decided to give it a whirl. 

I got these Certified Angus Beef Brand USDA Prime NY Strip Steaks from Food City on Morrell Road.
I went to my Food City and picked out this gorgeous pair of Certified Angus Beef® Brand, USDA Prime NY Strip Steaks.
