Barbecued Roast Beef Sandwiches

Make these family-pleasing sandwiches even more quickly by using 1 cup prepared barbecue sauce for the Zesty Barbecue Sauce and 1 pound thinly sliced roast beef from the deli, cut into strips. Heat the barbecue sauce just to boiling, and stir in the beef.

Use 3 (2 1/2 ounce) packages sliced cooked chicken, ham, turkey or pastrami, cut into 1-inch strips, for the beef.

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped


  • 1 pound thinly sliced cooked roast beef, cut into 1-inch strips (3 cups)
  • 6 burger buns, split


  1. In 1-quart saucepan, heat all sauce ingredients to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly; reduce heat.
  2. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir beef into sauce. Cover and simmer about 5 minutes or until beef is hot.
