"I combined a few great-tasting meat loaf recipes to create this flavorful family favorite," says Deb Thompson of Lincoln, Nebraska. "My husband loves it, and because it's made in the microwave, it's ideal for busy nights."
Garlic, onions, soy sauce and onion soup mix flavor the tender beef in these savory hot sandwiches served with a tasty rich broth for dipping. The seasoned beef makes delicious cold sandwiches, too.
