*Tip: This recipe can be altered to fit your desired amount of servings. Add in more spices or take away based on the amount you would like to serve.*

It best served on French bread with thin layer of mayo, tomato slice, cheddar cheese, beef & onion, and cheddar cheese slice along with a side of beef broth (Au’jus) for dipping sandwich in.


Bring a pot of water to boil with onions, beef Bouillon, and Italian seasoning until onions are tender. Once beef water has boiled and dissolved all seasonings it is time to add in the roast beef. Only add the meat when your ready to eat. The longer the beef sits in the broth the more tuff the meat gets. Pull apart the beef and drop into beef broth single slices at a time. Stir around in the broth and it only takes seconds for the meat to finish cooking. Serve on French bread or rolls.
