Redeye Gravy:


  1. Rub beef Top Sirloin Steak with 2 teaspoons espresso powder and pepper. Preheat broiler to HIGH. Place steak on rack on aluminum foil-lined broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 16 to 21 minutes for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning once.

  2. Meanwhile, melt 2 tablespoons butter in large skillet over medium heat; whisk in flour. Cook 8 to 10 minutes until caramel color, whisking often. Remove mixture from pan; set aside.

  3. Melt remaining tablespoon butter in same skillet over medium heat; add tasso, onion, Creole Seasoning and garlic; cook 10 minutes until onion is translucent. Dissolve remaining 4 teaspoons espresso powder in hot water; add to skillet and cook 1 to 2 minutes until browned bits attached to skillet are dissolved and sauce is reduced almost completely. Whisk in butter mixture until smooth. Add beef stock, hot sauce and Worcestershire; bring to a boil. Reduce and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until sauce is reduced to 1 cup.

  4. Add roast beef to skillet. Cook 3 to 5 minutes until heated through, stirring often so sauce coats beef.

  5. Divide beef mixture between rolls. Top beef with tomato and lettuce. Close sandwiches.
