Open-Faced Beef Sandwiches with Greens and Horseradish Cream

Photo: Randy Mayor; Styling: Leigh Ann Ross

Texas toast—sometimes labeled grill, griddle, or French toast bread—is the thick-sliced fresh bread available in many supermarkets. You can substitute a (1.4-ounce) slice of Italian or French bread. Since bread is typically high in sodium, serving a sandwich open-faced cuts down on the mineral. Salting the beef a bit before broiling adds a little flavor; we save the rest of the salt to season the meat after it's sliced.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 open-faced sandwich)
