outstanding. I used tender venison, and it was wonderful. The allspice really lifts it from a regular sandwich meat. Also did use the sesame yogurt sauce, yumm

Very flavorful sandwiches! I loved the bright flavor of the broiled tomatoes with the deeper flavor of the beef. Next time, I think I will try cooking the beef differently, maybe doing it on the grill or not slicing it before cooking. Thanks for sharing! Made for ZWT3
