Ribeye steak sandwich with a Gruyere cheese sauce and arugula mayonnaise. It was on Tyler Florence's show a week or so back and thought I'd give it a shot. Overall, not a bad sandwich.

Do they have Netflix in Canada? Seasons 1 and 2 are both available (DVD and BD...not instant view). Season three is only two weeks in on regular HBO, so it will be a while for it to be out on disc.
