Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches with Gravy

This is one of those recipes that reminds me of my Grandma. It is total comfort food. There aren't a lot of ingredients and not much work - but it is quite tasty and filling! We have also made this recipe with turkey and chicken, substituting chicken broth for the beef broth. It's a great way to use leftover turkey after the holidays, too! We always enjoy this with mashed potatoes and some sort of veggie ... and gravy - homemade gravy ... lots of it! Homemade gravy really is the best ... don't be intimidated by making your own! It's really pretty easy. I hope your family enjoys this as much as mine!







Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches with Gravy
Yield: 8-10 servings

2-3 lb. chuck roast
½ tsp. garlic powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 can (14.5 oz.) beef broth
2 tbsp. cornstarch
¼ cup cold water
Additional salt and pepper, if desired
Bread slices

Place roast in a crockpot. Sprinkle roast with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour the beef broth around the roast. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or until beef easily shreds with a fork. Remove roast from the crockpot and shred beef. In a medium pan, add all of the broth from the crockpot into the pan. Cook over medium-high heat until hot. Stir cornstarch and water together in a small bowl or cup. Add to pan. Lower heat to medium and stir constantly with a wire whisk. Bring to a boil and boil for 1-2 minutes or until the gravy thickens. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired.

Place a bread slice on a plate. Top with shredded beef. Place another bread slice on top. Cut sandwich in half, corner to corner, forming two triangles. Pour hot gravy over the top.

**If you like a lot of gravy or are planning on eating this with mashed potatoes, I would definitely suggest doubling the gravy portion of this recipe if you are feeding the stated 8-10 servings! (2 cans of beef broth, 4 tbsp. cornstarch and ½ cup cold water.) Still use one can of broth to cook with the roast - when it's time to make the gravy, use the broth from the crockpot and the additional can of broth.

I hope you enjoy!

  16. Hot beef sandwiches were something that we had often for lunch when we were going to school. After my mom passed away I would have the sandwiches ready for my younger brother and sisters when they came home. I always ground the meat up and it wasn't that long ago that my brother was reminiscing about this and wished that I would have sandwiches ready for him on a plate as now that he is married... he has the bread, meat and gravy on the table and has to make his own :).. poor boy. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday and I hope that you will join us next week with some great recipes. http://marlys-thisandthat.blogspot.com

  31. Well I always google this recipie to see who does what, this is as simple as it gets and so tasty, bottom round roast also works, top round, even eye of round. can't over cook int he crock pot, I use a large broth from Aldi's so their is lots of gravy, I mean a lot of gravy, mashed potatoes and bread for the sandwich, with gravy in layers. Any veggie goes with this, you can also add a little Maggi to darken the color and enrich the flavor. I had to do this today and got a nice bottom round roast from Aldis , perfect for the crock pot, a little over three pounds, been cooking for around 4 hrs on high, rotaiting the roast in the crock pot, and of course snitching a test piece each time, OH, Yes, yummie for my tummie. Packer time tonight at 6:30 , giants. Go Pack Go.
