I chose this recipe to use some leftover roast beef from our Sunday dinner and I'm glad I did. Because it was a "leftover" meal, I wasn't able to follow the ingredients exactly. I used a can of tomato paste and mixed it with beef broth and water to get 2 cups of liquid. I also didn't have dry mustard so I threw in some pepper and garlic powder instead. Because the meat was already cooked, I baked it for 1 hour at 350F and then the 10 minutes with the bread at 400F. We really enjoyed this and I'll make it again. Thanks!
