Quick and Easy Beef Manhattan

Make a hearty open face sandwich for lunch or dinner in under 10 minutes.

In researching the origins, I found that this has very little to do with Manhattan and originated in Indiana in the '40's and is more and Indiana dish.  Regardless, it is still good.

I will do the breakdowns per serving and you can multiply it as needed

  • 1/3 to 1/4 lb of roast beef
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup of prepared mashed potatoes
  • 1 jar prepared gravy (makes about 4 servings)
  • 1-2 slices of bread
I started used instant mashed potatoes and made them according to the the instructions on the box.

I used sliced roast beef from the deli but leftover potroast works well also.  Put on a microwave safe plate and nuke on high for approx. 2 mins.

For the bread, use 1 to 2 slices per person as the base.  To toast or not to toast is a personal choice, I usually toast very lightly in the oven for a minute.

Open gravy and warm on medium heat on the stove.

Put 1 to 2 slices of bread or toast on a plate.

Put a large scoop of mashed potatoes on top.                         

Use a fork to put slices of roast beef on top of the bread or toast.

Ladle gravy over the top of the roast beef, then serve.
