Arby's Beef n' Cheddar Copycat

This Arby’s Beef n’ Cheddar copycat recipe is a close second to the real deal.  Add some of the frozen Arby’s fries from your local grocery store and make it a meal.

Copycat recipes are so hard to master.  I feel like restaurants have some sort of magic wand to make food taste extra good.

This is at least a close recipe that you can enjoy at home.  I’m assuming it’s probably a little healthier, too.

Make sure you get the onion buns for these sandwiches to make them as authentic as possible.  You should be able to find them at any major grocery store.

The key to making the roast beef taste good is to buy thin sliced and make sure you get it rare.  This allows you to heat the roast beef and not overcook it.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 4 ea onion buns
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 ea beef bouillon cube
  • 1 lb. roast beef rare
  • 3 tbsp Catalina dressing
  • 8 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp milk


  1. In a small pot, melt the cheddar cheese with the milk over low heat.

  2. In a medium pot, heat the water over low heat and stir in the beef bouillon cube.  

  3. Once the cheese is melted and the beef bouillon cube has dissolved, place the roast beef in with the beef flavored water.  You only want it to heat up until it's warm.  If you overcook it, the roast beef will become tough.  I recommend 1-2 minutes at the most.

  4. While the beef is cooking or after you remove the beef from the pot, spread some of the Catalina dressing on the bottom bun of each sandwich.  Quickly add the roast beef and then top with the melted cheese.

  5. Serve immediately.  You can serve with the Arby's fries from the frozen section of your grocery store to make a whole Arby's meal.
