My Texas Style BBQ Beef and Shrimp Sandwich {Plus $100 AMEX Gift Card Giveaway}

 

 

“Take a Sandwich Road Trip with Kraft Foods!”

 In July, Kraft Foods will be launching an interactive microsite on http://www.outstandwich.com that will act as a virtual trip around the country, as we search of the best regional sandwiches. Just imagine my surprise when I was asked to create a recipe that represents the state of Texas. I was all up for the challenge!

The state of Texas is known for many things, including extremely rich and flavorful food. The four best known foods found in Texas are chili, barbecue, chicken fried steak and tex-mex cuisine. While the Texas chili is famous for being beanless and full of meat and extra-hot chili peppers, Texas barbecue is known for its heavy grill-smoke flavor and spicy sauce.

When the challenge was brought to me about creating my own version of a Texas Style sandwich, I knew exactly what I was going to do and yes it would include barbeque so I decided upon a Texas Style Barbeque Beef and Shrimp sandwich.   Although there are several versions of the popular Texas BBQ sandwich, I’ve never heard of one with a shrimp combination unless I missed it along the way. It took me a couple of days to come up with a different version but after all said and done, it was time to create my masterpiece and since all things are big in Texas, I wanted it massive, loaded with a generous amount of beef and shrimp topped with a few thick slices of onions, all piled on a standard soft buttered white bun.

shrimp and beef
Hungry, yet?

 

What you will need:
1 Package of pre-smoked pre-sliced beef brisket
1 lb. peeled shrimp
Zatarains Creole Seasoning (or something similar)
Vegetable oil ( for frying shrimp)
Barbecue sauce
Hamburger Buns
3/4 cup melted butter
3 oz. red onion, thinly sliced

Method/Steps
Since the brisket was pre-cooked,preparation was real simple. In a heavy baking pan, add brisket, cover tightly and bake in preheated 375 degree oven for about an hour and a half. Once heated and thoroughly cooked, slice and set aside while you prepare the fried shrimp. In deep frying pan, fry shrimp for about 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Drain and set aside.

Now that the beef and shrimp are prepared, place 2 buns on a flat work surface. Brush one side of each bun with ½ tbsp. melted butter. Lightly toast bun with buttered sides down, on a flattop griddle or in a sauté pan over medium heat.  Place the toasted sides of the toast down and portion BBQ beef on each bottom slice. Top with fried shrimp, 1/4 oz. red onion rings, lettuce. Add other condiments of your liking. Close sandwich with the top slice of bun and ENJOY!

    Mmmm I love sandwiches! Parden my messy recipe I just wing it.
    Chop up some steak, season with salt, pepper, and a little crushed red pepper, brown it.
    Chop up some onion and green pepper and sautee them.
    Combine them together and melt about 6oz of cream cheese into it, once it’s mixed well add some provolone cheese and put it on a yummy sour dough bun! :D

    oh, hmmm, since I live on the road in an RV, I am going to use my home state of Georgia for my sandwich. I have loved this sandwich since I was a teenager, one I created myself:

    2 slices of bread
    peanut butter
    fresh juicy peach

    spread peanut butter generously on the bread. Slice the peach unpeeled, and place the slices on one piece of peanut buttered bread. Place the other piece of peanut buttered bread on top. enjoy while the peach juice drips down your arm.

    My favorite sandwich to make is the Classic BLT.
    I first toast the buns with slight butter on each side.
    Next I add avacado with a splash of lemon juice instead of the mayo. Then of course add the bacon, lettuce & tomatoe. Its and easy recipe anyone can make.

    Toast potato bread then spread with soft Philly garlic cheese. Pile high with sliced oven baked chicken slices and top with bacon slices.

    This is a wonderful tasty sandwich that I developed for hot summer days here in the south.

  23. Cat says:

    Your sandwich looks really good, Cant wait to try making it!
    My regional sandwich favorite is Beef on Weck, I moved to wny last year and it is a local favorite. I have made a few additions to make it more what I was used to. So here’s my version of Beef on Weck!

    4 pretzal bread rolls
    1 3-4lb beef roast
    Sea Salt
    3 garlic cloves (chopped)
    Black Pepper
    3 tbsp worcestershire sauce
    1/2 cup beef broth
    1 medium onion
    3 tbsp Horseradish
    1/2 cup sour cream

    Season roast with sea salt, garlic cloves and black pepper. Place in crock pot and turn on high. Mix together broth and worcestershire sauce and pour over roast.Slice onion into thin slices and place in crock pot with roast. Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours or until roast starts to pull apart. Mix together Horseradish and sour cream. Cut rolls and spread some of the horseradish sauce on each top of the roll. Top bottoms or rolls with beef mix, Add extra sea salt if desired. Top beef with tops of rolls. Serve with chips or fries and cole slaw or other cold salad. Enjoy!

    That looks yummy. I love pulled pork. We fill a crock pot 3/4 way with water, cut up an onion and and stick in our pork roast. Cook it on low all night and then drain it . Basically it all falls apart. Mix in a bottle of BBQ sauce (to your likening). Cook on low for another hour and then you are set.

    My favourite sandwich is none other than a wrap, I cook some spicy chicken that I pick up at the local grocery store, I cook it in the oven on my stone for 20 minutes on a 375 degree oven, I cut the chicken in strips. Add the strips of chicken on Sundried Tomato wrap, add some tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and some Kraft Italian dressing. So good!!

    My favorite local sandwich is the spiedie, which origninated in the Binghamton NY area, not far from where I live. This sandwich is white meat (traditionally pork, chicken or lamb) marinated for a day and then grilled and served on Italian bread. It is traditionally served with no condiments.

    Ingredients:
    2 lbs pork, cut into 1 inch cubes
    1 c. olive oil
    1/4 c. lemon juice
    3/4 c. vinegar
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
    1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
    1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 loaf Italian bread

    Directions:
    1. Combine all the ingredients except the bread in a ziploc bag and mix well. Marinate the meat for at least 24 hours, turning the bag over occasionally.

    2. Remove meat from the marinade and place on skewers. Grill the skewers for 8 minutes, turning every few minutes.

    3. To serve, fold the bread over the the skewer and pull the skewer out.

    There aren’t many local sandwiches around here.. I’d have to go with the peanut butter, jelly and banana.

    Slice banana into slices..
    Cut fresh bread into slices.

    Smooth peanut butter over bread..
    Add jelly..
    Add bananas..
    Put top piece of bread on sandwich..

    Enjoy.

    Mammie’s Cupboard in Natchez, MS has the best sandwiches in this area. They do not have a website, but this link is the google review. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I think mine wool be their turkey sandwich. Made with fresh carved turkey, avacato, and homemade blueberry chutney made from blueberries picked a mile down the road, served on homemade sourdough bread. The restaurant itself draws you in- I suggest you check out the pictures to see for yourself. When else will you have the opportunity to dine in a restaurant shaped liked a woman and each the most amazing sandwich served with blueberry lemonade and caramel banana pie.

  72. Lyn says:

    My favorite sandwich is from left over prime rib. I slice a yellow onion (preferably a Vidalia) and slowly caramelize it in a saute pan with a couple of tablespoons of butter and a light sprinkling of sugar and seasoned salt. I cut a loaf of french bread diagonally and grill it in the same frying pan with the left over butter from the caramelized onions. Sprinkle a little garlic salt on it as it is browning. When browned, place the bread on a foil lined cookie sheet. I then take the very thinly sliced pieces of prime rib and pile it on the grilled bread. Top with the caramelized onions and your favorite shredded cheese (ie: sharp cheddar). Place under the broiler just long enough to melt the cheese until it is bubbly and slightly browned. Occasionally, we’ll also add mushrooms that we have saute in a wine sauce. (I generally make extra sandwiches which can be frozen and warmed up at a later date). YUM!!!

    We like to make our own Philly Cheese sandwiches. I saute green peppers and onions until tender, then add thinly sliced deli roast beef and simmer until heated. Put the mixture on a hogie roll and top with swiss cheese. You can put it under the broiler just a few minutes until the cheese melts.

    My local sandwich would have to be a BBQ pork sandwich – they’re crazy about it here! This site has an excellent recipe for not only the prep of the meat, but the sauce as well. http://www.wasabibratwurst.com/pulled-pork-recipe/

    If you’re looking just for a sandwich sandwich, then actually it would be Fried Baloney *shudder* It’s actually on several local menus! Served on white bread (preferrably Wonder) with mayo. *double shudder*

    (yes, I’m a transplant…. LOL)

  90. My favorite is the chicken fried steak sandwich. Growing up we loved it so much. It was an easy way to have chicken fried steak (a Texas staple) on the go. You can make your own homemade chicken fried steak, but for a fast version, I like to buy the prepared chicken fried steak patties in the freezer section of the store. It’s not quite as homemade, but still tasty.

    Recipe (Serves a family of four):
    8 Slices of Texas Toast (toasted and lightly buttered)
    4 Sandwich sized pieces of chicken fried steak (either use your own personal recipe or use the prepared ones from the freezer section and prepare according to package directions)
    4 Slices of Cheddar Cheese
    Thick Sliced Tomatoes to taste (we love the ones fresh from the garden)
    Sliced Pickles to taste
    Mayonnaise

    Take one slice of warm Texas Toast and spread with mayonnaise then layer with the cooked chicken fried steak then cheese, pickles and tomato. If you like your cheese melty, put it under the broiler for a minute or two before topping it with your second piece of toast. Repeat until you make four sandwiches. Yummy!

    Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwich
    2 slices white bread
    2 tablespoons peanut butter (creamy or chunky, doesn’t matter)
    1 banana, sliced in such a way as to fit on the bread.
    Spread half the peanut butter on one piece of bread and half on the other. Put the banana slices in the middle.
    Enjoy.

  207. This is a yummy ham and egg sandwich recipe:

    4 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
    2 slices American cheese, chopped
    1/3 c. ham, diced
    1 heaping Tbsp. mayonnaise
    Salt & pepper

    Mix all ingredients together and then spread inside hamburger buns (or inside leftover dinner rolls from Easter). Wrap each sandwich in foil and heat in the oven at 400 degrees until heated through – appx 10-15 minutes.

    -8 slices Canadian back bacon
    -4 slices Canadian cheddar
    -butter
    -Kraft mayonnaise
    -4 slices tomato

    My fave is the New Orleans Muffaletta

    Ingredients
    1 cup mayonnaise
    1/4 cup sherry vinegar
    2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    1 tablespoon honey
    1 red onion, diced
    2 cups each pitted picholine and cerignola olives, coarsely chopped
    1 cup roughly chopped piquillo peppers
    1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, leaves roughly chopped
    1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano leaves
    Kosher salt
    Freshly ground black pepper
    1 muffaletta or small round Italian loaf
    2 ounces each thinly sliced Genoa salami, hot soppresata, Salchicon de vic or other dry salami, and serrano ham
    2 ounces thinly sliced aged Manchego cheese
    Directions
    Whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard and honey in a large bowl. Add the onion, olives, peppers, parsley and oregano; toss, and season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

    Slice the bread in half and pull some of interior from the top half. Spread some of the olive salad on each half. You will probably have some salad left; it holds well in the refrigerator.

    Layer the meat and cheese on the bottom half, alternating layers of each meat with thin layers of cheese. Cover with the top half, press gently, slice, and serve.

    here in the piedmont of nc my favorite would be of course a piedmont style barbecue sandwich. it is smoked, chopped pork barbecue with no sauce – only vinegar based slaw on a bun. when i make it at home i roast a pork shoulder on low heat for several hours depending on the size,let it cool and chop. my slaw is shredded cabbage, vinegar, sugar, ketchup, salt and pepper. i can’t give you measurements because we just wing it until it looks and tastes the way we like it. simple, but when done right it is heavenly!

    My favorite sandwich is made by a local restaurant here in Colorado and it is a wrap made with organic smoked salmon, spicy coleslaw, roasted peanuts, and a sesame ginger cream sauce. It is wonderful.

  264. I love to make Avocado and Tomato sandwiches on a healthy whole wheat and grain bread. Either with cream cheese or mayonnaise depending on preferences. Add some salt and lemon pepper on the Tomatoes. Some alphalfa sprouts are a crunchy addition but they may be harder to buy nowadays due to the recent e-coli outbreaks :( So substitute some crispy lettuce instead and maybe add a slice of swiss cheese too if you wish!
