Beef Sandwich a la LeQuieu - Old World Beef Classic Recipe

(click to enlarge)

In 1887, the four brothers LeQuieu sailed from Paris, France to homestead in the United States. A rugged, independent foursome, they were adept at putting their own beef on the table. Like their hearty beef sandwich with a French flair, dubbed "Beef Sandwich a la LeQuieu," still a family favorite in the home of Gus LeQuieu.

Jewels LeQuieu was my Great Grandfather. He and his brothers came up with a mouthwatering French beef sandwich.

Here is their recipe:

2 lbs. ground beef
salt & pepper
3 c. baked beans
2 c. tomatoes, drained and chopped
1/2 c. onion, finely chopped
3 c. grated cheddar cheese
1/4 c. butter, melted
1 unsliced round loaf of French Bread
Slice bread horizontally into four parts. Spread butter on all cut surfaces.
Brown ground beef; drain. Season with salt and pepper. Add beans, tomatoes and onion.
Divide into three parts. Spread one part on bottom slice of bread; sprinkle with 1 cup cheese. Repeat layers, ending with top of bread. Brush butter of entire crust. Wrap in heavy aluminum foil; use double layer of foil on bottom. Bake in center of 350 degrees oven for 30 minutes. Slice in pie shaped wedges and serve hot. Serves 8

I hope you enjoy this family recipe,

Are the "baked beans" like "pork and beans"? Or do they sell "baked beans" as is? Just curious. I might just give this a whirl! Thanks for the recipe.

@ Michael, I would love too. =o)
@ Pat, you can buy just baked beans, but I am sure pork and beans would work just fine too.
@ Wonder Man, It is yummy. =o)

You are making me hungry. Looks like a really good recipe. BTW - I was over your way yesterday. Spent the day in Indy. I love the city, but I hate your traffic. I- 465, what a mess!!

MMMMMMMMMM...sounds tasty! By the way thanks for the comment on my blog. You came out in a public place? WHERE?!

Allen said...

@ Rae, I agree with you I-465 is a mess. Its horrible. The city has grown faster than the interstates. It really a pain in rush hour.
@ Jeve, Glad you stopped by. Yes, I told my father in a small public park. =o)
