Toasted Roast Beef Sandwiches

This is the perfect "busy weeknight" dinner!  It comes together really quickly, and can also be made using leftovers. 

I threw this together the other night, on "one of those" nights. (You know, homework, scouts, science projects, basketball... need I go on?)  My husband especially loved it, so I'll take that as a win.

Nothing fancy, but it'll put food in the bellies, which is always a good thing.

Toasted Roast Beef Sandwiches
  • Rolls/buns (you can make your own, or buy store bought if you are lazy...I use my french bread recipe, and just make them into individual sizes.)
  • 2-3 T. butter
  • 1 or 2 onions
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 T. bbq sauce (your favorite kind, or homemade)
  • 1 T. worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound roast beef, cut into thin strips (you can use leftover roast for this, or buy the kind in the deli)
  • salt & pepper
  • provolone (or any kind) cheese slices
  1. In a large skillet, melt butter.  Slice the onion in half and then in thin slices (so they are half circle).  Add to pan and cook until soft and golden.  This will take about 10 minutes.  Stir in the garlic and the seasonings, and cook for just a minute (you don't want to burn the garlic).  Add the bbq sauce, worcestershire sauce and the roast beef.  Cook until everything is combined and coated and the meat is heated through.  Taste for seasonings and add salt & pepper accordingly.
  2. Slice the rolls in half, and place desired amount on the bottom of the roll.  Top with cheese.  Place pan under broiler JUST until cheese is melted and bubbly, will not take long at all.  About 1 to 2 minutes depending on your broiler.
