These seriously are the best roast beef sandwiches that you can fit in the palm of your hand. Not to brag or anything, but I kinda came up with this little concoction. It really wasn’t all that hard though. Chef I am not. But, given the tools that I have on hand, I can create a little delicious something to ease those hunger pangs.
All you need is dinner rolls, roast beef, cheese, and a parmesan seasoning. Did you ever imagine that something so small and with only 4 ingredients could be so flavorful? No? Well, think again.
Here’s what you’ll want for this meal:
King’s Hawaiian Honey Wheat Dinner Rolls, 12 count
Boar’s Head Roast Beef, thinly sliced, 1 1/2 pounds
Boar’s Head Butter Kase, 3/4 pound
Au jus Seasoning Packet (I used McCormick brand)
*Note* You can use any brand of roast beef and cheese, and heck, even plain ‘ole dinner rolls, but, honestly, it just doesn’t taste nearly as delightful as this combination. I highly, highly recommend you stick with the brands I gave you. And, you should be able to find them at any major grocery store. As far as the Pampered Chef item, see my blurb about it below.
I told myself that I wasn’t going to post anything in regards to Pampered Chef. I am currently an Independent Consultant with them and love the products. but my blog is not about them. My blog is about my struggle with trying to find new and delicious ways to bring my family to the table daily; and I hope more than anything, that you, the reader, can draw some insight, tips, and meals for encouraging your family to come around the dinner table as well.
That all being said, I am going to put in a plug for one of Pampered Chef’s products today. This is a dinner that my husband and I have come up with that satisfies every little sweet, salty, meat-hankering, and cheesy-melting craving out there. I have tried several various products that are similar to what Pampered Chef carries. And, I have tried to make my own concoction, but every attempt at finding something equally as delicious has failed miserably. What product you ask? It’s just a simple seasoning. Meant for adding olive oil and dipping a piece of bread into it. Parmesan-Garlic Oil Dipping Seasoning. As simple as it seems, I still can’t get the measurements right to get the exact taste that I had when making these the first time. Therefore, I am posting this with the hope that for those out there that don’t want to get the Pampered Chef product and can come up with a delicious alternative…I am all ears! Please let me know! In the meantime, use this seasoning, I promise it won’t disappoint.
To start- pour 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil in a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of the Parmesan-Garlic Seasoning. Stir. Set aside for now.
Make the au jus according to the package directions. Once it’s hot, separate your meat slices and drop them in the au jus. Take them out just as quickly as you dropped them in. Throw your warmed meat in to a bowl and cover with foil until you’re ready to assemble the sandwiches.
Here’s my fur baby, Charlie. He was waiting patiently for me to “accidentally” drop him some meat. Isn’t he adorable? Who could say ‘no’ to that face?
Split your rolls in half and layer them on a baking sheet. Layer your meat, as much as you want, on top of the bottom half of the rolls. The amount of meat, 1 1/2 pounds, I listed at the beginning will generously cover the 12 rolls. If you love more meat, then buy a little more and keep on piling high!
Fold a slice of cheese in half and place on top of the meat before placing the top half of the roll on top.
This already looks delicious. BUT, wait…for…it….
Brush that olive oil seasoning on the top and on the sides of the bread. Baste away. If you find you used a lot and need more, make some more and keep on adding! It bakes up quite nicely and the more flavor, the better!!
Once you’ve got everything covered in the olive oil mixture, bake in a pre-heated oven (at 350 F) for 10-12 minutes.
Now, that is a roast beef slider.
I think it’s time you had a little slider in your life. Don’t you?
