This recipe for Quick Barbecued Beef Sandwiches has a brilliant hack- use deli roast beef!  The sauce features sauteed onion and condensed tomato soup for the perfect sweet and savory base, then add brown sugar, cider vinegar and Worcestershire and simmer.  Add the roast beef and just heat through- this recipe is ready in 25 minutes from start to finish.  The home-cooked barbecue sauce in these Quick Barbecued Beef Sandwiches is what makes them special- and you can make it anytime, since you probably already have the ingredients on-hand!


cost per recipe: $21.85

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 can (22.6 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Tomato Soup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 pounds sliced deli style roast beef
  • 12 Pepperidge Farm® Sesame Topped Hamburger Buns, toasted


  • Tips

    • Serving Suggestion: Serve with carrots, celery and potato chips. For dessert serve a chocolate parfait: layer chocolate pudding with your favorite crumbled cookies and top with whipped topping.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook until tender.

  • Step 2

    Stir the soup, water, brown sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 5 minutes.  Add the beef (separating the slices so they get coated in the sauce) and cook until the mixture is hot.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  Divide the beef and sauce among the buns.

    Made this for the family and they loved it. Quick, easy and delicious. Made a big pot of these sandwiches for a picnic with the neighbors. It was a hit and we are now the favorite people to invite to a party. LOL

    With some minor tweaking, this was very good!! We added just a little more Worcestershire sauce and vinegar and a little less sugar and it came out great!! Will definitely be making this again!!

  • Good but not great

    Nice for a change of pace but 2 of my kids preferred the plain roast beef. It had a good flavor but I probably would not make it again.
