To put a twist on the classic roast beef sandwich, the canteen-style gourmet eatery PublicUs in downtown Las Vegas uses coffee-brined roast beef.

The Coffee Roast Beef Sandwich features a mix of ingredients to create an interesting flavor combination, including brie and a horseradish coleslaw on ciabatta bread that's freshly baked in-house. Each of the individual flavors plays well with the others to bring out tangy, earthy and slightly sweet profiles, yet none overpowers the other in this savory sandwich.

Although coffee is sometimes used in savory marinades for cooking meat, this coffee-rubbed roast beef sandwich uses this cafe staple as an ingredient to elevate a quick and easy meal into an upscale lunch or dinner option.
