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 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!!

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. :)
