Robin’s Roast Beef Sandwiches
In the Jewel Series, Derrick lived under Robin’s roof from the time he was 18-years-old. Robin learned very quickly how to feed a “growing boy”. When he comes home in Topaz Heat, she knows exactly what to feed him.
- 3 lb bottom round beef roast
- 2 tsp salt (Kosher or sea salt is best)
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 TBS olive oil (extra virgin)
- 8 ea onion rolls
- 1 ea large sweet onion
- 1 ea large green pepper
- 8 slices provolone cheese
- 2 TBS unsalted butter
- mayonnaise to taste
In a skillet large enough for the roast, heat the extra virgin olive oil. Place the roast in the oil and brown each side just until browned.
Remove and place in roasting pan. Add about 1/2 cup water. Bake at 350º F (180º C) for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Remove from oven and let cool.
Thinly slice the onion and the pepper.
In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and the pepper. Let cook, slowly, until the vegetables are soft. Remove from pan.
Split each onion roll in half. Slather with mayonnaise. Place cheese on one side of the bread and a generous helping of roast beef on the other. Top the beef with the onion and pepper. Serve with plenty of paper towels for this wonderful, messy sandwich.
