Cold Saurbraten a la mode in Aspic

Miscalculating the day of my dad’s birthday dinner, I ended up marinating the pot roast a week too early! However, not to be discouraged, I decided to try this cold buffet dish from Luchow’s. Personally, I’m not a big fan of aspic (who is?) and this dish turned out about exactly as you would imagine, cold beef covered in jelly. I had imagined that it would slice like a terrine but it ended up just falling into a pile on the plate (perhaps I didn’t use enough gelatin?). Regardless, there are probably a hundred other things to do with your left over pot roast that will treat you better than this dish. Oh well, you can’t win them all!
