  • When meat is fully marinated and you're ready to prepare sandwiches, preheat oven to broil.

  • In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the onions and mushrooms in the butter or margarine for 10 minutes, or until onions are tender. Set aside.

  • Broil the meat for 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove from oven and slice thinly against the grain. Place slices evenly on the bread and cover with the onion mixture.

  • In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the cheese, salsa and olives. Microwave for 3 to 4 minutes on high, or until the cheese is melted. Stir well and serve with the sandwiches.

My husband and I thought was great! It's even good warmed up. I thought the Thousand Island and the Velveeta topping would be odd but it's great! We will definatly have this again. Read More

I bet would have been better if I would have picked up the right roast. Once I found out it was too tough I gave up on the roast and made hamburgers using the dressing and using the cheese sauce for dipping and the bread as buns. Now that was good! Read More

Excellent! I made one change and that is that I had my butcher slice the beef knowing that I'd never get it as thin as I wanted. So with a ton of small pieces I knew I would also have to change the cooking method. I grilled it in a grill basket instead of broiling. Everything else stayed the same (oh except for the bun in which I used a hoagie because I had them on hand). These were outstanding down to the stuffed jalapeno green olives. Me and the husband both really enjoyed these. The onion/shroom combo went perfect with the marinated beef and cheese. I had the leftover (minus the bun) for lunch today and the beef was still tender. I could be wrong but I think me having the beef sliced prior to dropping it in to marinate helped it absorb the flavor and also made it more tender. This was so much better than a Philly Steak N Cheese in my opinion! Read More

This was very tasty! Even my picky 9 yo daughter said it was the best sandwich she ever ate. I did not include the jalapeno stuffed olives because i could not find them in the store. I also used regular rotel tomatoes instead of salsa to make my traditional queso for the dip. Read More

These are so good! Loved the flavors. I did change a few things. It was a busy day so I threw the roast into the crackpot and let it cook that way. Also was out of Italian dressing so I made some using Italian dressing Mix (on allrecipes). Shredded the beef up and topped the bread with it then threw it under the broiler for a minute. Also added some provolone cause you can't have to much cheese right? I left out the jalapeño stuffed olives because I'm a big wimp when it comes to spicy. Will definitely make these sandwiches again!
