Wine Pairings

This robust sandwich is loaded with all the right flavors-tangy barbecue sauce and juicy beef topped with a dollop of creamy homemade coleslaw.


  • 1/3 cup smoky barbecue sauce plus additional for serving
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 12 oz sliced roast beef, cut into 2" 1/2"strips
  • 2 Tbs reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 Tbs light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbs prepared horseradish
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp jalapeño pepper sauce
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage and carrot coleslaw mix
  • 4 soft whole wheat rolls or sandwich buns


  • In a small saucepan, bring the barbecue sauce and scallion to a simmer. Stir in the beef and bring to a bare simmer. Cover, remove from the heat, and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the sour cream, mayonnaise, horseradish, vinegar, honey, and pepper sauce until blended. Toss in the coleslaw until evenly coated with the dressing.
  • Open up the rolls and spoon the beef mixture on the roll bottoms, dividing evenly. Spoon the slaw over the beef, dividing evenly, and cover with the roll tops. Serve with additional barbecue sauce, if you wish.
