This was a big hit with the family. It was super delicious and fairly easy. I made it exactly as written and everyone loved it. I served the roast on homemade French bread (from another Taste of Home recipe) and the sandwiches were amazing! Another bonus is that it makes a lot so you can have leftovers for lunch the next day!!
Loved by a Dad and 4 boys
The best open faced beef sandwhich I've ever made. Great with both provolone or swiss cheese and several different types of bread or buns lightly toasted. Flavors are heavenly. :)
