  • Season stew meat with salt and pepper.
  • Dredge the pieces in flour, coasting all sides.
  • Heat oil in a dutch oven or saucepan on medium-high heat.
  • Add prepared stew meat and brown on all sides. When the meat is all browned, add the onion, reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the onions are tender and starting to caramelize - approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • Add garlic and tomato paste, cook for 3 minutes.
  • Add the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce and bay leaf. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the cover, increase the heat to medium and simmer another 25-30 minutes. The broth will reduce to about 3 cups.
  • Taste the broth, add salt if needed.
  • Strain the broth, discard the bay leaf and reserve the meat for another recipe. The meat would be great in a bbq beef sandwich or on top of egg noodles.
  • To assemble the sandwiches, split the rolls horizontally, but do not cut all the way through.
  • Place in the oven just until warmed all the way through, approximately 5 minutes at 325°F.
  • Add the sliced, deli style beef to the au jus in the sauce pan until warmed through.
  • Remove the beef from the au jus and divide it up amoung the warmed rolls.
  • Keep the sauce warm and pour into individual cups for serving.
  • Add horseradish sauce or sliced cheese to the sandwiches if desired.
