As written we did not really like this. It was runny and very tart. I ended up adding cream of cheddar soup to thicken it and mellow out the sharp taste. My son and I would have given it a 2, but my husband liked it both before and after the cheddar soup, so we averaged up. Thanks for giving us something new to try.

This sandwich is a guy's type sandwich because it is meaty and hearty. I rarely eat a sandwich without veggies or cheese but decided to serve this as written to see if it would be a husband favorite and it was. I served it with a green salad and her zesty lime rice and the flavors all complemented each other well and the salad made it healthier. It makes a lot of meat if you do the 3 lbs so you will have leftovers or buy more rolls and feed more people. The carmelized onions were great. We all consumed it before I could get a photo. We will make it again for sure. The Worcestershire sauce is a love it or hate it flavor. It was good for us. We omitted Tabasco as my family is sensitive to it. We do not toast rolls either but soft were just as great. Thanks for posting Ree Drummond's recipe Stephanie so I didn't have to. Enjoy! ChefDLH

I made this after seeing the episode on TV. This is a great recipe. I did not find it runny or messy. My kids and husband loved it! I'm making it again tonight. Maybe if it didn't work out for you, you can look on her blog and see a step by step explanation of how to make it.
