My sister came up with these quick sandwiches that use minced garlic and other seasonings to bring pizzazz to deli roast beef. Add some carrot sticks or a tomato salad for a fantastic lunch in no time. -Maria Regakis, Somerville, Massachusetts

"My husband LOOOOOVED this. He told me I had to make this again. I personally thought the spices could be a little lowered, especially the salt, but I still enjoyed it a lot as well. Super easy. I didn't have quite 1/2 lb of deli roast beef (I used Oscar Mayer's Natural Slow Roasted Roast Beef) so there was enough "juice" for us to dip in. I'd definitely recommend."
