4962 Bookmaker’s Sandwich

Method

This substantial sandwich is favoured by people attending race meetings; after perusal it will be seen that such a snack could on occasion take the place of a full meal.

Cut off the crusts from the ends of a sandwich loaf leaving at least 1 cm in) of bread on them. Grill a thick steak, well seasoned with salt and pepper; allow it to cool then spread it with mustard and sprinkle with grated horseradish. Butter the crusts, put the steak between them and tie up with string. Wrap it in several sheets of clean absorbent paper, place in a press and tighten it gradually before leaving it for 30 minutes. When removed it will be seen that the inside of the sandwich is saturated with the meat juice which the outside crust has prevented from escaping. The string and paper are removed and the sandwich is then wrapped in greaseproof paper or placed in a box with a lid.
