Buffalo Cuisine

Before Buffalo Wings became the rage, Buffalo was known for a special roast beef sandwich. Although it is now overshadowed by wings, beef on weck still is  very popular.
I once brought kimmelweck rolls back to Kansas City so some of the world's best roast beef could meet up with these great rolls. Unfortunately, kimmelweck rolls don't have a very long shelf life so they weren't at their best by the time we arrived.
Maybe that is one reason the sandwich has stayed local to Buffalo. I do hope that Santa will bring we one over the holidays.
Beef on Weck
I’ll have a
beef on weck.
A beef on what?
A beef on weck.
What the heck
is a beef on weck?
A kimmelweck roll,
hard and salty,
stacked with roast beef
with horseradish, please.
Never heard of it!
Oh, I’m not in
Buffalo anymore
am I?

  1. I have never heard of kimmelweck rolls, but they sound delish! ... And now I desperately want a sandwich. My stomach thanks you! :)

    1. They definitely are, Khara. You may have to take a road trip and try one!

  2. I don't often have reason to head up to Buffalo, but now you've got me curious. I might just have to do a little research to see if I can make this at home. LOVE a good roast beef sandwich!

    1. That's great, Chris. Let me know if it works out!
