Hot & Spicy Roast Beef Sandwiches

Hot and Spicy Roast Beef Sandwiches #beef #sandwich #recipe

Deli roast beef is simmered in spicy beef broth and served on crusty toasted bread, topped with ooey gooey cheese and peppers to create our favorite hot and spicy roast beef sandwich recipe in under 30 minutes!

My mouth is watering just looking at the photo of our sandwich creation. That is when you know a recipe is really good, if a photo makes you crave it. Luckily I am making them for lunch again today. {{slurp}} excuse me a moment while I reminisce and lick the screen.

This is truly a stellar sandwich, perhaps my favorite ever and I am a sandwich girl so that is saying a lot! This recipe is so easy. It all starts with deli sliced roast beef simmered in a spicy beef stock made with Red Hot Chili Pepper Everything Spread (found in the condiment aisle in your grocery store). The spread adds the perfect something to the beef and infuses the meat and juices with a little heat and a lot of flavor.

The hot spicy beef is served over perfectly toasted crusty bread that will absorb the scrumptious juices from the beef. Monterey Jack and Colby cheeses are melted over the beef and then it is topped with Deli Sliced Hot Cherry Peppers and Mild Pepper Rings. The combination of the two peppers add the perfect tang and spice to the sandwich.

Hot & Spicy Roast Beef Sandwiches are perfect for lunch or dinner and even taste delicious served at room temperature. Just wrap them up and send it to work or school as a fantastic surprise.

Do you love creating your own custom sandwiches as much as I do? I am so excited to share with you Mezzatta's Make That Sandwich contest. The grand prize winner receives $25,000 and 2 runner ups will receive $1,000! Holy smokes. That is a lot of moolah! What are you making?

Hot & Spicy Roast Beef Sandwiches

1 pound thin sliced deli ‘oven roasted' roast beef
1 cup beef stock
¼ cup Mezzetta Red Hot Chili Pepper Everything Spread
½ teaspoon course black pepper
kosher salt (to taste, add less if beef is well seasoned)
1 (12" long or larger) Loaf Firm Bread (we used Jalapeno Cheddar Loaf from the bakery)
2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
Slices Monterey Jack cheese
Slices Colby Jack cheese
Mezzetta Deli Sliced Hot Cherry Peppers
Mezzetta Deli Sliced Mild Pepper Rings

Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a skillet over medium heat combine ① beef stock, ② chili pepper spread and ③ pepper. Stir to combine. ④ Add roast beef. Stir until beef is coated. Bring to a simmer, continue to cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste beef. ⑤ Add salt, if needed, a ¼ teaspoon at a time until desired flavor is reached.

Meanwhile: split loaf of bread lengthwise (to make a top and bottom of the sandwich) and butter both sides. Place butter side up on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Pile roast beef on toasted bread, do not drain, the bread will absorb the juices and become even more delicious. Add slices of cheese and place in oven just until melted. Top with peppers. Cut bread into slices.

Serve and enjoy!
