"My whole family loved this recipe. It was very tasty and super easy to prepare. The only change I made was to use cheddar cheese slices in place of the shredded cheese. A slice of cheese fit the ciabatta roll perfectly. These sandwiches along with some coleslaw and you have a wonderful and quick weeknight meal."

"This has been a special favorite for years. I, too, add grilled onions -- I thought that it was my own original idea. Now I think that great minds think alike. Next time I'll try adding pepper strips -- hadn't considered that before but it sounds wonderful."

"Garlic butter brushed on the rolls, then broiled makes this one over the top good. I also sauteed onion slices and sweet red pepper sticks to top off the beef. Love it!!!"
