Easy Roast Beef Subs

No pictures, just the goods. We were too hungry and ate this up way too fast for me to snatch the camera. I managed to snatch a camera later when I made one up for my husband who was coming home after working 2nd shift.

In anticipation of me being home with the boys on a busy night, I picked up a package of sliced roast beef from Sam’s Club, a pack of their swiss cheese slices, and  a 6-pack of sub rolls from a different store. Today I went from work to home, to briefly checking emails, and getting the boys to their locations (football practice, hunter safety class and one who went with my mom) me off to take an exam, then me racing out to see the second half of a soccer game, to back home by 8:30 pm. Got all that?

Here’s what I did with the supplies I had previously gathered (It took me about 15 minutes):

1 cup water
2 tsp Better Than Bouillon Beef Base
1 package of sliced beef from Sam’s Club/Castle Foods 1# 6oz package (or sliced roast beef from your deli – about 1 1/4 pound)
1/2 small onion, sliced
1/2 bag of frozen, sliced peppers
1 package of 6 sub rolls
10 slices of swiss cheese
1T butter
1T olive oil
dash of salt and pepper

Saute vegetables on med-high heat. After they have released the water, add about 1T. olive oil and a dash of salt and pepper. Keep mixing so they don’t stick, turn on low when browned. Also, bring water to boil in stockpot or deep pan. Add bullion and butter. Add slices of beef, one by one. Stir gently to heat and saturate the beef. Turn on low.

Slice buns and top with cheese, veggies and meat, and a little of the broth if you like. Enjoy.

Super easy, nice and warm. Cheaper than take-out.

Tonight we had tacos con carne. Too busy eating to remember to take pictures, but I assure you they were beautiful.

Chicken and steak, both grilled. They were very yummy. I made a dry rub/seasoning for the meat that consisted of:
