Italian Beef Sandwiches

Italian Beef Sandwiches
4 servings

2 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons oil
16 slices deli roast beef
1/2 cup beef broth
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
2 teaspoons dried basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 sandwich rolls, split
4 slices provolone cheese

In a skillet, saute garlic and pepper flakes in oil until garlic browns. Add the broth and seasonings; stir. Add the roast beef slices and heat through. Place beef slices on rolls; drizzle with the broth mixture. Top with cheese, serve additional broth to be added at the table and enjoy!

Oh, these were a HUGE hit with the entire family. Which thrilled me, since they couldn't be any easier to whip up. I will definitely have these on heavy rotation!

One good thing about counting calories (well, besides loosing weight!) is how you become very conscience of not wasting any. When you are limiting the number of calories you consume each day, you very quickly realize how important it is to make every bite count for nutrition and taste! I've found that you really enjoy your food even more and you are so much more purposeful about meals and cooking. It's fun! You also tend to seek out new foods to keep things interesting. Foods that are healthful, tasty and satisfying.

My newest love is this Lipton Bavarian Wild Berry tea.
At 0 calories it's a super mid-afternoon taste treat to look forward to! Very refreshing and yummy!

Just right to sip while looking through my chicken books! ;-)

Update - I tried Island Mango and Peach this afternoon! Yum! I think I need to try all the different flavors!
