Roast Beef Sandwiches & Copycat Arby's Sauce:

Arby's and Chic-fil-A are definitely my favorite fast-food restaurants.
I just LOVE the waffles fries, grilled chicken, salads, and milk-shakes at Chic-fil-A.
At Arby's, my favorites are the Cheddar Road Beef sandwiches and the Jamocha milkshakes.
Thankfully, I don't live very close to a Chic-fil-A at all, and the nearest Arby's is still like 15 miles away. 
So when I saw this recipe for Arby's sauce, I just couldn't wait to try it!!
It's really, really good, and although I don't know if it tastes "just" like Arby's sauce, it's super close and makes a GREAT sandwich (as well as a nice dipping sauce for fries!!!)!
The sauce will stay in the fridge for a couple weeks, and the roast beef is made in the slow-cooker, so it's a really fun, impressive looking, super fast and easy main dish!!
Hope you try it out!!

2 lb. Beef Roast
1 cup water
2 tblsp. beef seasoning
Sliced American cheese
Arby's Sauce (recipe below)
Hamburger Buns, toasted, if desired

Place fresh or frozen roast in a slow-cooker. Add water, and sprinkle the beef seasoning over all.
Cover and cook on high for 6-8 hours, until it shreds easily with a fork.
(You can cook it longer as well. The more tender it is, the better.)
Serve on toasted buns with cheese and Arby's sauce!

Arby's Sauce:
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tblsp. apple cider vinegar
4 tblsp. water
4-5 drops hot sauce
2 tblsp. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Place all ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat for 20 minutes, stirring often, especially in the last 10 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature.
Transfer to an airtight container. Lasts in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

-If you don't like spicy food, don't be intimidated by the hot sauce. It really doesn't add any heat, just a really nice flavor. For someone who likes hot sauce, you wouldn't even be able to tell it's in here.
