This is one of my favorite sandwiches ever....I eat at Art's all the time. One suggestion though. When Art's serves the sandwich the top the meat on the bread with cooked quarted bell peppers that have been boiled or steamed until soft. The peppers really add another dimension to the sandwich...try it...you will like it!

I worked at Art's Pizza on Broadway in Anderson in the 70's making the pizza dough and roast beef. You hit the nail on the head with this one. You dip the bread in the broth and serve it open faced, eating it with a knife and fork. Plenty of napkins. It was good to find this again.

This works great for a filling meal. We did open face with melted cheese on top. It kinda taste like pizza. My family of 4 ate it once, then we put the leftovers in the freezer. Three wks the leftovers were yummy! I stored the leftover (which was enough for another meal) in a freezer bag. Thawed 24 hours in fridge. Put in crockpot on low 4 hours. Worked great!

I grew up in Anderson and this has been a "secret family recipe" in our family for as long as I can remember. This has to be the best recipe to come out of Indiana ever! The only thing missing that is in the recipe my family acquired is 1/4 teaspoon sage.

One of the best recipes I've found on 'zaar -- and that's saying something! The roasts were all so small that I bought 2 (5# total), increasing most of the other ingredients by 50% so there would be plenty of juice.

This was easy, not sure how I liked the "tomatoey" taste to the roast beef.
