Dinner time can be so hectic and stressful. One of our favorite ways to make meal time a little easier is to batch cook on the weekends. When we fire up the grill on Saturday or Sunday, we always add a smoked rump roast, whole chicken or do a double batch of beef ribs.
It's really just as easy to grill a large portion as it is a small portion and it's such a time saver during the week if the main dish is already prepared.
We can usually get a couple of meals out of one nice sized roast or a whole chicken. It's also easy to freeze half to eat next week or later in the month. We also love to turn a chuck roast into Poor Man's Burnt Ends.
How to Make the Best Roast Beef Sandwich:
Any cut of roast will make a delicious sandwich. Rump Roast is really tender and delicious but we most often cook a chuck roast, which is less tender but usually more affordable.
- Pat roast dry with paper towels and season both sides with olive oil and Beef Rub. Use a sharp knife or large tined fork to pierce the roast and rub the seasonings down into the meat.
- Prepare a grill to 300°. Cook roast over indirect heat for 30-40 minutes per pound until it reaches 145°. Allow roast to rest 10 minutes before slicing.
- If you are batch cooking and preparing roast ahead. Cool roast for 30 minutes and do not slice. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator until ready to serve.
- For the sandwiches: Thinly slice roast. For hot roast beef sandwiches, add 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil to a skillet and heat roast over medium heat, about 3-5 minutes, just until warm.
- Butter buns and toast lightly.
- Top buns with thin sliced roast, drizzle with homemade Horseradish Sauce and top with Easy Onion Strings if desired.
This is one of the best Roast Beef Sandwiches that you'll ever try! It makes a really simple dinner that the entire family can enjoy and it would be a huge hit for game day parties! Guaranteed!
