Why You’ll Love These

You will love this roast beef sliders recipe because they taste way better than Arby’s roast beef sandwiches, horseradish sauce included!

Perfect game day (Super Bowl) finger food! Easy to make and incredibly delicious.

Key Ingredients

  • Deli Roast Beef – Ask the deli to slice it thin. I highly recommend using good-quality deli meat, not the prepackaged stuff. The roast beef is the star of this dish!
  • Provolone Cheese – I highly recommend purchasing the cheese from the deli too!
  • Slider Buns – Pick your favorite. I’m not particularly fond of the Hawaiian rolls because they tend to be sweet.

Variations

  • About your buns, get what you like. There are several that work with this. You can use a standard slider bun, or a dinner roll, whichever you prefer. You can also hit the tops of the rolls with some melted butter and poppy seeds.
  • You can also use Hawaiian rolls if you like. They are a bit sweeter than we prefer, but my sister goes crazy over them. So, by all means, get what you like.
  • You can also use Havarti, Swiss, Muenster, or white cheddar cheese.
  • Not a fan of horseradish? Try a spicy brown mustard, Dijon, or even honey mustard.
  • Try adding sauteed onions.

How to Make Roast Beef Sliders with Horseradish Sauce

Football season is upon us and my husband is chomping at the bit for game-day foods. Is yours? This manly dish is the way to his heart.

So simple, just layer all ingredients and bake.  Place the buns in your baking dish, and spread half of the prepared horseradish sauce. Lay on half the cheese slices.

As you can see from the photo above I had to manipulate the provolone cheese slices to fit properly. This is only because I was stuck buying actual slider buns. The grocery store I was in didn’t have the dinner rolls I prefer to use for sliders and I wasn’t about to make another stop.

Place the roast beef on the cheese by layering and folding as needed to pile it nice and high.

Drizzle the remaining horseradish sauce evenly over the beef.

Top with another layer of cheese, then place the slider tops on and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove the foil and bake another 5 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted.

What goes with roast beef sliders?

These are great just by themselves! But you can serve it with chips, fries, or even salad.

Can these be made ahead?

You may prep the entire dish (sauce included), wrap the unbaked sliders tightly with plastic wrap, and store them in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours before baking. I recommend removing it from the fridge at least one hour before baking.

Storing and Reheating

Store any leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a 300 degree F oven, covered with aluminum foil for 15 to 20 minutes.

Ingredients
 

  • 12 slider or dinner rolls
  • 1 lb roast beef deli meat thinly sliced
  • 12 slices of provolone cheese or more

Horseradish Sauce

  • 1/2 cup prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl combine the horseradish sauce by mixing the horseradish, mayo, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, and salt. Taste for seasoning. Set aside.
  • In a 9×13 baking dish place the bottom half of the rolls, spread half of the horseradish sauce evenly over the rolls and evenly lay out about 6 slices of the provolone cheese.
  • Top with the roast beef, folding and layering the meat on each roll, drizzle the beef with the remaining horseradish sauce, layer with the remaining cheese slices and place the roll tops over the cheese.
  • Brush with the melted butter, cover with foil and bake 15 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and bake another 5 to 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted.

Notes

If using actual slider buns instead of dinner rolls you will need 1 1/4 lb of roast beef and about 14-16 slices of provolone.

  1. Leigh, This looks so good! Yippee! I think this is a perfect idea for a crowd of hungry men! We are having an end of the season Golf Group party and these are going on the menu for sure! Thanks for sharing. Pinned!!

    1. Thank you for letting me know the oven temp was missing from the recipe, Erica! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do. 🙂

  2. If I have a creamy style horseradish sauce on hand, can I just spread that over the meat instead of preparing the sauce in recipe?
