It’s summertime and grilling is in full swing. Take advantage of leftovers, or cook a bit extra to create these FABULOUS appetizers for a small or large crowd. The ingredients in this recipe create an incredible balance of flavors that support the star of the show… beef! I developed this recipe years ago for Beef Loving Texans, the core of this recipe was making sure to enhance the flavor of the beef, rather than compete with it. Use your favorite cut of beef (personally, I love tenderloin) or thinly sliced deli roast beef for an easy alternative. Start with a foundation of sourdough or a dense bread, a smear of flavored cream cheese (or our favorite… Boursin), beef, arugula or spinach, a drizzle of balsamic syrup, and shaved parmesan cheese. Ya’ll…yum!! This appetizer is a hit every single time. Serve as an appetizer or a meal. Enjoy!

Tiffy’s Tips
~Almost any leftover stead works perfectly for this recipe! I always cook extra and certainly take leftovers home when dining out. Slice EXTREMELY thin.
~If you prefer to grill… grill the bread and the steaks!
~Have the bread pre-sliced at your local grocery store bakery. 
~This recipe is adapted from Beef Loving Texans.
