A favorite accompaniment to roast beef, horseradish is the thick, gnarled root of a plant in the cabbage family. It has a refreshing, spicy bite. Prepared horseradish has already been grated and is mixed with white vinegar or beet juice and packed in jars. For this recipe, use horseradish packed in white vinegar.


  • 2 Tbs. mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. prepared horseradish
  • 8 thin slices white sandwich bread
  • 1/4 lb. roast beef, sliced paper-thin
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise and horseradish. On a clean work surface, spread 4 of the bread slices with the mayonnaise mixture. Layer the roast beef on the bread, and season with salt and pepper. Top each with one of the remaining bread slices.

Using a serrated knife, trim the crusts off the sandwiches. Cut the sandwiches diagonally into quarters and arrange on a cake stand or serving platter. Serve immediately. Makes 16 tea sandwiches; serves 8.
