In bowl combine applesauce, horseradish and sliced green onions. Set aside. In a non-stick skillet melt the butter and cook the roast beef until just warm. Season with salt and pepper. For each serving, place a slice of toasted rye bread on a plate; cover with 1/4 C. of the lettuce and 1/4 of the beef slices and a slice of red onion. Serve the applesauce mixture on the side.

  • I liked the sandwich, but I wouldn't call it German-Style. Germans hardly ever put sauces or lettuce and tomato on their sandwiches. I should know a little about this, I am German and lived my first 27 years in Germany.

  • I liked these on the rye bread, but the onion was too much. My spouse liked them without the onion or sauce.

  • I'm not so sure this would be a great recipe. The ingredients call for "thinly sliced RED onions", yet the directions tell us to combine applesauce, horseradish & GREEN onions. The RED onions are mentioned later to add on to the sandwich. So ... how many sliced GREEN onions are we supposed to use?
