  • Stir the sauerkraut, mustard, barbeque sauce, and hot pepper sauce in a microwave safe bowl. Cook in the microwave on high until slightly bubbly and thickened, about 3 minutes. Meanwhile, place the bread onto a baking sheet, and top with the roast beef and sauerkraut sauce. Place a slice of cheese over each sandwich.

  • Broil in the preheated oven until the edges of the bread are slightly blackened, and the cheese is bubbly, about 3 minutes.

My family LOVED this recipe. I should note that I used hoagie rolls instead of the sliced bread that was called for. I also omitted the hot sauce - not intentionally but I discovered I was out when I went to make these. I think the pepper jack cheese has more than enough pep and I will not be adding the hot sauce in the future. I used 24 oz. of sauerkraut and doubled the mustard barbecue sauce. I was able to make 7 sandwiches out of this. Read More

Excellent taste - sauerkraut is the key I made this recipe though with a large garlic loaf browned as usual rather than just bread. Mmmm..... Read More

What a delicious blend of ingredients for the sauerkraut mix. My roast beef was sliced thin but not shaved. I had my broiler on lo and they took 4 minutes to be light brown on top and they were heated through and through. Husband added mayonnaise to his bread the rest of us did not. I tried both and it is good both ways. Read More

I'd broil it for maybe 2 minutes but it was fantastic! I thought the sauerkraut would overwhelm the sandwich but it balanced well with the dijon and bbq sauce! I added some pepperoni slices under the meat as well as pepperjack cheese on top and it was perfect! Read More

Really nice change of pace! Very easy even if you heat the sauerkraut on the stovetop. I wasn't sure if the sauerkraut was supposed to be drained or not; next time I'll drain it a little as it was a bit soupy. I added pepperoncinis and sliced tomatoes under the cheese. Great weeknight meal! Read More

I never would have thought of bbq sauce going well with this type of sandwich but it does! It's a nice sweetness to go with the sour/tang of the sauerkraut and mustard. I was going to make this open faced but when I went to move the sandwich from the baking pan to a plate I accidentally flipped it over and it was not pretty to look at anymore so I slapped the top bun on there. Anyway very tasty and different! Read More
