500 ml of good quality beef bone broth (available from good butchers and supermarkets)
1 brown onion, diced
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp dry sherry
1 tsp black peppercorns
2 tsp olive oil

Method

1

6

Slice the rolls lengthways and spread remaining butter.

7

Place the rolls under a grill butter side up to lightly toast.

8

Remove from the grill and spread the toasted sides with horseradish cream and grain mustard.

9

Take the roast beef and divide equally between the sandwiches. Top with a slice of jarlsberg cheese and place back under the grill to gently melt.

10

Once the cheese has just started to melt remove from the grill and top with a tablespoon of the caramelised onions.

11

Close the sandwich, slice in two and serve each sandwich with a small bowl of beef jus to dip the sandwich into between bites.
