Tender, juicy, flavorful roast beef  – there’s just something about it.  Whether braised or done in the slow cooker it’s always a hit at my house.  Last week I picked up a beautiful roast from Lowes Foods with the full intention of putting it in my slow cooker.  Time got away from me so, I turned to my cast iron dutch oven.  I love braising meats because with some veggies, stock, a few herbs and a little time, you are actually turning your oven into a slow cooker!  As always, my roast turned out beautiful, delicious and dinner was great.
With one successful dinner done, I had enough roast beef left over for a second meal.  That’s where this dish comes in.  Our family loves cheese steak sandwiches which got me thinking…how about a southern roast beef version.  All you need is your leftover roast, toasted rolls and cheese, then baby…you are in business.  I know it’s not Tony Luke’s from Philly, but this is one great sandwich!
