How to Make Chipotle Roast Beef Sandwiches

In a small saucepan, add all au jus ingredients: beef broth or juice from cooked roast, peppercorns, bay leaf, rosemary. Let au jus cook on medium heat until it reaches a boil, then turn it on low to simmer while the sandwich cooks. 

Preheat the oven to a low broil. On a baking sheet, lay all 8 slices of bread. Place in the oven until toasted, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from oven and flip each piece.

In a small bowl, mix the Swiss cheese with chipotle peppers & sauce with a fork. Spoon cheese mixture onto 4 of the bread slices, putting about 3 tablespoons on each. 

Divide shredded beef onto the other 4 pieces of toasted bread. Place back in the oven to let the cheese melt, about 2-4 minutes. 

Remove, letting cool a minute, then put each of the four sandwiches together. Remove au jus and pour into 4 individual dipping containers. Slice the sandwiches and serve with dip.
