Easy Roast Beef Sandwiches

You guys, I just don't have the time anymore. As I write this, Judah is bringing me the tinfoil. The tinfoil. From the tinfoil drawer. Oh, wait. Now he's carrying something around...a laundry basket. That's full of clean clothes. The kid is freakishly strong. Now, imagine this, 24/7. Dinner planning and/or making is a thing of the past. Unless it's quick.

I have another recipe for these made with an actual roast, and it's incredible (and actually pretty easy, too).  I highly recommend it. But with Memorial Day around the corner and Tim's 30th birthday party just a few weeks away, I have to keep the grocery budget down. A roast at Walmart runs around $11 for a small one. So instead, I bought half a pound of roast beef at the deli for $2. This recipe makes about 4 sandwiches given the amount of roast beef. I'm not mathematician, but that just makes good sense.

  • Sandwich hoagie rolls
  • Provolone cheese slices
  • Seasoning salt
  • Pepper
  • Roast beef from the deli (1/2 pound makes 4 sandwiches)
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 1 can french onion soup


These are the kinds of hoagie rolls you should buy. I love these from Walmart. Cut the loaves in half.

Place 4 of the halves on the baking sheet. Top with roast beef. The roast beef I bought comes in large slices, so I tore them up by hand.

Top with some seasoning salt and fresh pepper.

Cover with provolone slices.

Top with the other bread halves. Place in broiler for 5-7 minutes or in the oven at 350° for about 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

Here's what I'm serving it with -- loaded hashbrown casserole. So good. Here's the recipe.

Here's what you'll need for the au jus. I also know a few people who only use beef broth, but I've found mixing it with the french onion soup makes a huge difference. Either way.

Mix both cans together and microwave until warm. That's it. Seriously.

Once the cheese is warm and bubbly, remove from the oven, cut in half, and serve with the warm au jus. It's just that easy, folks. Go forth and eat.

Love and roast beef,
