"5 stars, without a DOUBT! This was so easy to make and the results were INCREDIBLE! Yummy on crusty kaiser rolls with some of the au jus poured on top. With the leftovers, one night, I made some garlic bread with mozzarella and the kids made sandwiches "with a twist"...the garlic and cheese were a nice change up for leftovers. You've GOTTA try this!"
