We’ve been in Colorado for the past week so that’s why I’ve been MIA. I originally planned to write posts ahead of time but with the craziness of preparing for the trip, I didn’t get them done. Then I thought I would write after the kids were in bed but there was a hot tub at the house we were staying at so…. Sorry, I chose the hot tub instead. It was really nice to unplug and not touch my computer for a week but I sure did miss you guys.
I love going on vacation but it’s always hard to get back home, unpack and get back in the swing of things. Coming home to an empty fridge is kind of the worst too. I usually plan something easy for our first night back to ease back into our routine, like this Hot BBQ Beef Sandwich.
This sandwich was inspired by something I tried at a local sub shop recently. I dreamed of it for days and knew I had to recreate it at home. It starts with a crusty roll, then is stuffed with roast beef, sweet barbecue sauce and provolone cheese.
Place it under the broiler until the cheese turns to melty, slightly browned goodness. These literally take 5-10 minutes from start to finish making them perfect for those upcoming school nights.
- 4 sub rolls
- 1 lb. roast beef, thinly sliced
- 8 slices provolone cheese
- BBQ Sauce
- Preheat broiler. Slice rolls almost in half and spread open. Place on cookie sheet. Slather buns with desired amount of barbecue sauce then divide roast beef evenly between sandwiches. Top each with 2 slices of provolone cheese. Leave them open face.
- Place under broiler and cook until cheese is golden and bubbly. Remove from oven. Close sandwiches, slice in half and enjoy. Serve additional barbecue on the side for dipping.
