Okay, we just got back from vacation last night and I haven’t cooked anything for DAYS! Went to the grocery store this afternoon to pick up the basics and decided to do sandwiches for dinner.

The 1870 Steak sauce is a combination of tangy tomatoes, balsamic vinegar and worcestershire sauce mingled with onion, garlic and a splash of lemon/lime. It has a very tangy and slightly spicy flavor without being overly sweet. You can really taste the tomato and onion in this sauce. Since this is a bold flavored sauce, it stands up well to the strong flavor of the bleu cheese in my slider recipe below.

Bleu Roast Beef Sliders

Small sandwich rolls (I used King’s Hawaiian)
Roast Beef (I like Boar’s Head, myself)
Bleu cheese (thinly sliced)
Steak Sauce (I used the Tavern Direct 1870 Steak Sauce)


First, thinly slice the bleu cheese. I find a cheese slicer works best since it has a tendency to crumble.

Cut your rolls in half. I like a slightly sweet roll like the King’s Hawaiian sweet roll.

I prefer my sandwiches a little warm so microwave the roast beef for about 20 seconds or so

Assemble your sandwich…top the meat with the steak sauce and add lettuce and onion. We served with carrot sticks, milk, and a handful of potato chips!

  1. Oh my goodness! This is an awesome recipe. I just filed this into my MUST make recipe tab. Thanks for posting this! looks delicious.

  2. I love this post. That is so awesome what TavernDirect is doing to help our children. I will se sharing this information and hoping to spread the word.

    And the recipe looks great as well !!!

  3. I just added this to my recipe book! It looks so simple (a must) and looks super yummy (even better!)

  4. My hubby would luv this recipe…I myself do not care for bleu cheese, but I could see making it with a sharp cheddar for me…yum!

  5. I’m not a fan of blue cheese but I bet this would be equally tasty with a gouda or muenster (and the milder cheese would let the sauce really shine). Thanks for the idea.

  6. It’s definitely BBQ season here in Melbourne with the kids on school holidays and the nights warm and balmy. I love a BBQ with friends and family. I like to try and plan the BBQ meals so they fit in with a healthy PCOS diet / eating plan.
