Hot Roast Beef Sandwich

You will want to make my Slow Cooker Roast Beef and use the leftover roast beef for these sandwiches, although any leftover roast beef will work. So hopefully you have some leftover beef and au jus. I picked up some great french bread from the Italian Centre Shop and prepared to make homemade onion rings. I always thought I would have to drag out the deep fryer for this job (which I dread using because of the clean up); but I decided to give it a try on the stovetop with a large pot and about 3 inches of oil. I was only making dinner for two so this worked quite well. Now that it is just my husband and I at home I find I have "leftovers" and have to start planning ahead what my next meal will be with them. The freezer thing just doesn't seem to work as I forget what's in the freezer and it gets freezer burn. (I will conquer this part of organization - one day). 
This is one of the best hot beef sandwiches, better than any restaurant!

  1. I love onion rings and steer away from making them for the exact same reason. The clean up. I'll have to try this on the stove top.

    1. Yes worked great, just small batches at a time, I might actually try some recipes that require deep frying using this method.
