“We are on a paleo/gluten free diet so sandwiches really are not our thing. But when I watched the Foodnetwork with Jeff Mauro and saw this I had to make the pork. It is amazing! Makes a great roll up in a corn tortilla or if you are all paleo an excellent salad! I always adjust ingredients to fit my diet but this is the original recipe”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sandwich Build:
  2. 4 croissants, sliced in half horizontally.
  3. Horseradish mustard.
  4. 4 large eggs, cooked sunny side up.
  5. 2 cups Homemade Sour Cream and Onion Chips, recipe follows.
  6. Directions.
  7. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  8. Liberally sprinkle all sides of the short ribs with salt and pepper. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat and add the oil. Sear the short ribs on all sides until browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Once seared, set aside on a plate. Add the carrots, garlic and onions to the pot with the short rib drippings and season with some salt and pepper. Cook the vegetables until they turn golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Add in the tomato paste and cook for 1 minute more. Add the wine and deglaze the pot, scraping up any developed fond (all the delicious brown bits) from the bottom. Bring the wine to a simmer and season with some salt and pepper. Add the thyme, bay leaf and short ribs and any leftover juices from the plate the short ribs were resting on. Cover the pot and transfer to the oven until the meat is fork tender, 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Turn the short ribs one time during the cooking process after about 1 hour of cooking.
  9. Once the short ribs are tender, remove them from the braising liquid and set aside to cool. Skim the fat off the top of the braising liquid. Then strain the liquid through a fine mesh sieve and bring to a simmer until it is reduced by half, about 8 minutes (to yield about 2/3 cup of reduced sauce). Remove the meat from the bone and cut in half horizontally to fit on the croissant.
  10. For the sandwich build: Lightly toast the croissants and then schmear some horseradish mustard on the bottom half of the croissant. Place the slices of short rib on top of the mustard and drizzle with some of the reduced sauce. Top with a fried egg and then a nice pile of the chips. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
