Roast Beef, Pepper, and Cheddar Sandwiches

Beef and cheese sandwiches

Sometimes I just don’t feel like cooking. It’s nights like those when I need quick meals in my repertoire to keep me from eating out. Like this one. Reminiscent of a fast-food beef and cheese sandwich I remember from my youth, but way better and more grown up. Perfectly cooked roast beef, sautéed onions and peppers, and a sauce actually made of cheese make for a very quick and very delicious weeknight meal. A word of warning…leftovers make for a messy lunch, but so worth it!

1 pound Roast Beef, medium-rare and thinly sliced
1 Onion, thinly sliced
1 Green Pepper, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons Olive Oil
2 cups Cheddar Cheese, grated
1/2 cup Evaporated Milk
4 Hoagie Rolls, split in half

Divide the roast beef between the 4 rolls on a baking sheet, and heat in an oven at 350 degrees for about 5-8 minutes, or until heated through. Meanwhile, sauté onions and peppers with olive oil in a medium pan until softened, about 5-7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. In a small saucepan, stir together the cheese and evaporated milk over medium-low heat until the cheese has melted. Season with salt and pepper. Top the roast beef with the sautéed onions and peppers and drizzle with the cheese sauce. Serve immediately.
