  • 4 onion buns
  • 1 lb thinly sliced, deli roast beef
  • 5 slices American cheese
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • ground black pepper, to taste

For The Arby's Signature Sauce

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tsp water
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • pinch of salt


  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the meat and place a lid over the top, and then turn the heat to medium low.
  • Meanwhile, stir together the Arby's sauce ingredients and spread on the buns.
  •  In a pot on the stove on medium-low heat, add cheese, milk, garlic powder, and pepper and stir until completely melted and evenly combined.
  • Place the meat on the buns, add the cheese sauce, and a little more Arby's sauce (if desired). Top the sandwiches off with their other half.
  • Serve immediately, with curly fries, for an authentic in-home Arby's experience.
