I remember the first time my mom made these. And ever time since. They are so freaking delicious I can't even deal. AND IT IS SO EASY. Like scary easy. I remember making these when I was home alone one time. I made myself a sandwich and I made one for my dog JoJo. She was pretty pumped about it. This was the first time I added cheese though, and I think this will be the new staple.
So I know it sounds weird. Roast beef. In butter. But something happens to the roast beef when you saute it in the melted butter. The entire flavor changes and it becomes glorious.
I would recommend buying rare roast beef from the deli counter. That way, when you saute it in the butter it doesn't become super tough. You are basically cooking it...twice...so you want to be careful not to over do it.
Saute the beef for about 2-3 minutes. Just long enough for the butter to work into the beef. This is what it'll look like. Drooling. I'm drooling.
Set the beef aside. Get nice rolls...like these kaiser rolls. I split them down the middle, added some provolone cheese....
...and toasted them in the oven for about 2-3 minutes at 325 degrees. Just enough to heat the rolls through and melt the cheese.
Holy cow. Literally. Somewhere in Connecticut, Caitlin is scrunching her nose up at that joke.
Here's the "recipe." It's more about assembly, not the recipe.
4 Tbs of Butter
1/2 Lb of Rare Roast Beef, Sliced Thin
2 Kaiser Rolls
4 Slices of Provolone Cheese
Melt the butter over medium heat. Add the roast beef and saute the beef gently for 2-3 minutes or until the beef cooks down and the butter fully coats it. While beef is cooking, toast kaiser rolls with provolone for 2-3 minutes in a 325 degree oven or until the cheese is melted and the rolls are heated through. Pile the rolls high with beef and serve immediately.
