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. -Marilyn Brown, West Union, Iowa

"This was awesome. I skipped the browning on all sides in oil. I cooked the roast in a crock pot for 8 hours."

"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!!"
