Beef Brisket and Boerenkaas Gouda Grilled Cheese

Beef Brisket and Boerenkaas Gouda Grilled Cheese

This beef brisket and gouda grilled cheese is our gourmet version of such a simple sandwich. "Boerenkaas" is the Dutch word for farmstead. Or, in other words, this gouda is made from cows who live on the same farm where the cheese is made. This recipe is from our friend Chef Afrim Pristine and was featured on the Great Grilled Cheese Challenge.
