3. Pour in the beef broth and 1 cup water.

10. Top with a few peppers from the pot . . . And plenty of caramelized onions.

12. Top the sandwiches with the wedges of roll and serve to a roomful of ravenous guests. You’ll win friends and influence people.


• Lay thinly sliced cheese on top of the meat before adding the peppers and onions.

• Serve dishes of the cooking liquid on the side for dipping.
