Serves 4 (serving size: 1 sandwich)

Transform deli roast beef from a mundane lunch staple to a dinner-worthy entrée with the addition of this garlicky broccoli rabe sauté.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

Bring 8 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan. Cut broccoli rabe into 2-inch pieces. Add to pan; boil 1 1/2 minutes. Drain. Pat dry with paper towels.

Step 3

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add oil; swirl. Mince 3 garlic cloves; add to pan. Cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add broccoli rabe; cook 2 minutes. Stir in pepper and salt.

Step 4

Place bread slices on a baking sheet; broil 2 minutes or until toasted. Cut remaining garlic clove in half; rub bread slices with cut side of garlic. Top 4 bread slices evenly with roast beef, broccoli rabe, and cheese. Broil 30 seconds or until cheese melts. Top with remaining bread slices.

I really enjoyed this but it was missing a little something for me. I'm not quite sure what though. Will probably add a few sautéed purple onions next time & see if that does the trick.
