    I love this recipe! I think that the calorie count is off. If you are doing weight watchers you are looking at a 6 pt sandwich depending on the roast beef and bread you get. - 5/19/10

    That's a LOT of sodium! - 4/5/10

    No need to fantasize about an Arby's French dip & swiss anymore - this definitely hits the spot! Was able to shave off 30 calories a serving by eliminating the olive oil. I instead skipped right ahead to the wine and added onion powder and the flour (I used whole wheat), so no need to use 12o cal. - 3/28/08
