Notes And Tips
- You put the roast beef in the consomme to give the meat a juicy flavor boost and to warm the meat quickly.
- The longer you keep the sliced beef in the consomme, the more well done the roast beef will be.
- The more well-done your beef is, the tougher and drier the meat will be.
- You can skip putting the roast beef in the consomme altogether and place the roast beef directly on the hoagie roll. The beef will get warm in the oven.
- Serve this with a side of horseradish for an extra flavor kick.
