Grilled Roast Beef and Melted Pepper Jack Cheese Sandwich

READY IN: 20mins


  • 4
    slices thick sourdough bread
  • 13
    lb thinly sliced roast beef (I use rare beef purchased at the deli.)
  • 4
    slices monterey jack with jalapeno pepper cheese, generous slices
  • 1
    teaspoon canned diced green chilis
  • melted butter


  • Lay sliced bread on bread board.
  • Paint tops of bread slices generously with melted butter.
  • Flip bread slices over.
  • Spread mayonnaise generously on each slice of bread.
  • Assemble two sliced bread pieces with roast beef, cheese and 1/2 teaspoon diced green chilies.
  • Sprinkle with salt. Top sandwiches with other two slices of bread, mayo side down, butter side up.
  • Grill sandwiches on medium high heat griddle, with lots of butter on the grill beneath, until bottoms of sandwiches are golden brown and cheese begins melting.
  • Carefully flip sandwiches over using two utensils and grill again until bottom bread is also golden brown and cheese is melted.
  • Remove two sandwiches from griddle, slice each in half and arrange on two plates. Garnish plates.
  • Serve with dill pickles, yellow mustard, prepared horseradish and lots of napkins.
  • French fries, onion rings and cole slaw make wonderful additions to this meal.
