Beef on rye

Leftover sandwiches don’t have to be white bread, mayo, cold stuffing and cranberry sauce – here, the extras like beef and beetroot up the ante.

What You Need
4 medium-sized beetroot
4 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 stick celery, finely sliced
1 tsp chives, finely snipped
Sea salt flakes and freshly
ground black pepper, to taste

To serve:
4 slices sourdough rye bread
1 tsp creamed horseradish or whole-grain mustard
200g leftover beef fillet, thinly sliced
250ml watercress


1/ To roast the beetroot, wrap in foil and bake at 200˚C for 40 minutes or until a skewer pierces without resistance. While still warm, unwrap foil and peel off the skins.

2/ Once cool, grate or dice the beetroot; mix with the apple cider vinegar, celery and chives. Season with salt and plenty of black pepper and toss well.

3/ Spread a slice of bread with horseradish or mustard, add four slices or 50g of beef fillet to each slice, top with the watercress and beetroot, and serve.
