Since we live in a rural area where there really aren't any restaurants to speak of, I thought it would be fun to come up with my take on this classic sandwich at home. So effortless and delicious, grab a bottle of steak sauce to top them off for an extra bolt of flavor. —Lenette A. Bennett, Como, Colorado

"This recipe was easy! I loved how it uses just simple ingredients. I did find that the meat was a little bland so next time I'll add more sauce or seasonings. Otherwise - delish! Great for using the slow cooker on busy weeknights."

"I followed the recipe as written but my husband who loves provolone actually preferred this with cheddar cheese instead . Great easy recipe!"

"This was easy and it was good too. The only thing I would do differently next time is to season the meat more."
