Recreating the Fast Food Magic

Arby’s Beef ‘N Cheddar sandwich is a fast food classic that many of us love. The combination of tender roast beef, golden cheese sauce, and tangy Arby’s sauce on a soft bun is truly irresistible. However, why settle for fast food when you can make an equally delicious, if not better, version in your own kitchen?

The Perfect Ingredients

To recreate this iconic sandwich, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Buns: Choose onion buns for that extra flavor.
  • Roast beef: Opt for thinly sliced roast beef from the deli. The thin slices ensure a tender and melt-in-your-mouth experience.
  • Cheese: American cheese works perfectly for that rich and creamy texture.
  • Milk: Adding milk to the cheese sauce gives it a smooth consistency.
  • Spices: Ground black pepper and garlic powder provide the perfect balance of flavors.
  • Sauce ingredients: Ketchup, water, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt create a delightful sauce that complements the roast beef and cheese.

  1. While the meat warms, mix together the sauce ingredients and spread the sauce on the buns.

  2. In a small pot over medium-low heat, combine the cheese, milk, garlic powder, and ground black pepper. Stir until the cheese has melted and the mixture is well combined.

Storing Leftovers

While it’s best to enjoy these sandwiches right away due to potential sogginess, if you have any leftover roast beef, cheese sauce, or Arby’s sauce, store them separately in airtight containers in the refrigerator for a few days.

Customize Your Sandwich

Toasting the rolls is completely up to you! Arby’s does it for their classic sandwich, but it’s not essential.

Wondering what sauce Arby’s uses for their Beef ‘N Cheddar? It’s called Red Ranch, which has a similar taste to Catalina salad dressing. If you prefer, you can purchase Arby’s special sauce from most grocery stores or online here.

Choosing the Perfect Roast Beef

For the best-tasting roast beef, consider buying it from Kroger’s store brand or opt for Boar’s Head. Regardless of the brand you choose, medium doneness is recommended for optimal flavor.

Tips and Tricks

Here are some additional tips to elevate your sandwich-making experience:

  • Ask the deli to thinly slice the beef for you.
  • If you prefer, you can substitute shredded cheddar or even Velveeta for the American cheese in the sauce.
  • Don’t have time to make the sauce? Grab a bottle of Catalina dressing for a quick alternative.
  • To fully recreate the Arby’s experience, serve your sandwiches with a side of Arby’s curly fries. You can find them in the frozen french fry section of most grocery stores.
