  1. Combine the chipotle cooking sauce with the beef broth and cilantro in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onions in the hot oil until they begin to soften. Stir in the garlic and cook for another minute. Add the meat with 1/4 cup of the sauce and cook, stirring, for about two minutes until heated through.
  3. Ladle the sauce into four bowls for dipping. Place the meat mixture on the bottom half of the sandwich bun, garnish with cilantro sprigs and place top half of bun on top. Dip sandwiches in the sauce and enjoy.

Absolutely delicious. Made this recipe exactly as written and we loved it. Thanks for a great recipe bd.


OMG. This is SOOO good. If you don't start with bd.weld's Slow-Roasted Beef for Sandwiches on this site, you will be missing a major component of this sandwich! Please do yourself a favor and take the time to get that done. But then with this recipe I made it according to what we know works for us. The rolls were first slathered with a bit of mayo and then a bit of horseradish. The onions, which I caramelized with only butter and a touch of salt, and the garlic added a necessary layer to the sandwich. I did add a little mozzarella to the buns. But I cut my meat very thin and added it to the pan with the garlic onions and beef broth/Herdez mixture. What a perfect sandwich! I mean perfect. This will become a staple in our family, and I can't wait to serve this to friends! Thank you so much, bd.weld! You are pure genius!

Now this is a great sandwich! I had to change the method a bit, we have an onion hater in the family (silly girl) so I caramelized the onions and garlic in butter and did the chipotle sauce and beef broth in a separate pan. I mixed some of the chipotle cooking sauce with mayonnaise and spread that on the rolls. I put the rolls under the broiler to warm them up and toast them until the chipotle mayo was bubbling. I used very thinly sliced roast beef (slow roast beef for sandwiches on this site) and just dipped the beef into the sauce to just coat it. We like our beef rare so doing it this way didn't cook it any more. Topped with the caramelized onions and a bowl of sauce for dipping. This was a delicious meal that everyone enjoyed. Thanks bd.weld!
