  1. Step 1

    Season beef generously with salt and pepper. Cook to medium rare in a pan, under a broiler or on a grill, about 4 minutes per side depending on thickness. Set aside to cool for at least 10 minutes. Slice thinly on a bias and set aside. Blot extraneous juice with paper towels.
  2. Step 2

    Make horseradish sauce: Put grated horseradish in a small bowl. Season with a good pinch of salt and pepper and a little sugar. Add sour cream and stir to combine.
  3. Step 3

    Split rolls and lay them cut side up on a work surface. Butter each piece lightly, then spread with 2 teaspoons horseradish sauce.
  4. Step 4

    Divide sliced meat among the 6 bottom roll pieces, then garnish with cornichons, jalapeño and watercress. Replace top pieces of rolls and serve.
