  • 1 pound thinly sliced roast beef
  • 8 slices of sourdough bread
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar mozzarella cheese


1. Preheat grill to medium heat.

2. Spread BBQ sauce on both sides of the bread.

3. Place sliced beef and cheese sandwiches onto 4 slices of bread, then top with the remaining slices of bread.

4. Butter the outside of each sandwich and place them onto the grill (butter side down). Grill until golden brown and crusty, about 2-3 minutes on each side.

Sliced Roast Beef Thin And Grill On Both Sides.

The slice of roast beef should be thin and grilled on both sides. It’s best to start with a good quality cut of meat and then treat it right. You need a very sharp knife, some salt and pepper, and ideally a griddle or panini press. Start by seasoning the meat well on both sides with salt and pepper. You can use any seasoning you like or none at all, but it’s always a good idea to have salt and pepper on hand.

Once the meat is seasoned, take your sharpest knife and make several very thin slits across the surface of the deli roast beef. This helps break down some of the muscle fibers so that they don’t contract as much when cooked, resulting in a more tender final product.

Next, heat up your grill or griddle to high heat. When it’s nice and hot, place the roast beef slices on and cook for 1-2 minutes per side. You want them to be nicely browned on both sides but still pink in the center.

Spread Aioli (Or Any Other Sauce) On A Fresh Baguette

Aioli is a delicious sauce that can be spread on many types of bread. If you’ve never had aioli before, it’s sort of like mayonnaise but with more flavor. To make your own batch of aioli, start by placing two egg yolks in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Add two tablespoons of lemon juice and one teaspoon of Dijon mustard, then blend together until smooth.

While the motor is running, add olive oil to the bowl in a slow stream. The mixture will thicken as you add more oil. You can adjust the thickness by adding more or less oil. Once you’ve reached the desired consistency, add in some salt and pepper to taste. Spread the aioli over a fresh baguette for a delicious and satisfying snack!

This easy and tasty sandwich is perfect for a summer picnic or lunch on the go! Simply spread aioli (or any other sauce) on a fresh baguette, and layer on sliced cucumbers, thick-cut tomatoes, and sprouts. Season with salt and pepper. Slice and serve.

  • About 1 pound of leftover roast beef, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cut into rounds or wedges
  • 1/2 purple onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings (or use about 16 small red onions)
  • 6 cups greens (arugula, spinach, or lettuce), washed and dried
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Preheat grill to medium-high heat. If using a charcoal grill, light the coals and let them burn until they are covered with a thin layer of ash.

Arrange the roast beef, tomatoes, onions, and greens on a large platter. In a small bowl or jar with a lid, mix together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the vegetables on the platter, toss gently to coat, and set aside.
