  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup concentrated au jus sauce
  • 1 pound thinly sliced deli roast beef
  • 3 tablespoons horseradish sauce

Directions

  • Cut bread in half. Carefully hollow out bottom and top of loaf, leaving a 3/4-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use).
  • In a large skillet, saute onion and green pepper in oil for 5 minutes or until tender. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine water and au jus sauce; bring to a boil. Add beef. Reduce heat to medium; cook for 3 minutes or until meat is heated through. Remove beef with a slotted spoon; reserving 1/4 cup au jus.
