Pot roast is where the beef comes from for these beef sandwiches and there are a few different options you could use for the pot roast. Trader Joes has precooked options and so do many other grocery stores. But you could take the time to make your own pot roast, it will just take a lot of time.
Once you have the pot roast made or purchased, you will need ciabatta rolls, some olive oil, Swiss cheese, and sliced onion. Whatever your favorite condiments are, feel free to add them.
