Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



I made this recipe for superbowl and my husband and I really liked it. The coffee rub was great and I would recommend the grilled onions.

put it up one notch

i love to toast the hoagie halves in the pan first before the meat goes in. that gives the crust time to cool down a littlebit. the hoagie doesn't get mushy so quickly, when i put the slices and sauce on it.

Great taste

Sauce was great, meat so tender, rub was excellent Will definitely do again. We put beef in the sauce for leftover next day - SUPER
