You know it is that time of year again where we are just busy, busy. Between working extra hours, preparing holiday meals and Christmas shopping, it all just becomes too much. Well at least dinner doesn’t have to be. Today I created a dinner for you that is filling, loaded with flavor and I have to tell you my Husbands new favorite. This is Roast Beef with Mushrooms Sandwich.
This sandwich is so good! It’s rich, full of flavor, cheesy and has a wonderful dipping sauce. We had this for dinner the other night and it must have taken my about 6 minutes to make. You can’t beat that for a weeknight dinner and it’s so filling, you don’t need anything else.
To make the sandwich I used Imagine® Organic Culinary Simmer Sauces in Portobello Red Wine. I love the Imagine® Organic Culinary Simmer Sauces because they are low-calorie (20 calories a serving), certified organic, the only simmering sauce that is organic. Plus it’s convenient, comes in a 10 oz pouch and serves 4 – 5 people. Plus the flavor, oh my gosh the flavor. It has a beautiful mushroom flavor with a deep hint of red wine. This sauce will make any meal taste rich and expensive.
To make the sauce, I just opened my pouch, poured in a pan and let it heat up. I dipped my roast beef in it and placed it on my sandwich, than topped it with provolone cheese. I baked it in the broiler just until the cheese melted. So darn tasty! Then I took the leftover Portobello Red Wine sauce and used it for dipping my sandwich in. This really tasted like a sandwich that I would get at my favorite sandwich shop. I can guarantee we will be adding this to our dinner rotation.
I did want to tell you, to save on some calories, I scooped out some of the bread in my sandwich. I saved about 75 calories, which is not to shabby. Scooping out the bread makes a nice pocket for your meat and more of the Portobello Red Wine Simmering Sauce.
- 1 pkg. Imagine Portobello Red Wine Culinary Simmer Sauce
- 12 oz roast beef, thinly sliced
- 4 slices provolone cheese
- 4 hoagie or sub rolls
- Preheat broiler to low heat
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set a side
- In a medium sauce pan, add Imagine Portobello Red Wine Culinary Simmer Sauce. Heat over low heat, and cook until just simmering (about 3 minutes); stirring occasionally.
- Cut rolls in half horizontally. Core out some of the bread (this is to save calories) and discard bread that you pulled out of the sandwich.
- Dip roast beef in warmed Portobello Red Wine Culinary Simmer Sauce. Add 3 oz of roast beef to each roll. Top each roll with a slice of cheese. Place on baking sheet. Add sandwich to broiler, and cook until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
- Add leftover Portobello Red Wine Simmer Sauce to a bowl, this is for dipping the sandwich in.
- Cut sandwich in half and serve with a side of Portobello Red Wine Culinary Sauce.
