Copycat Arby's Sauce

A copycat recipe of the famous Arby's Sauce that makes sandwiches sing! Throw it on a pile of roast beef or a sandwich of any kind!


I've lost a taste for fast food in the past decade or so, but prior to that I had a few indulgences. One of them was an Arby's Roast Beef Sandwich TOTALLY SLATHERED in Arby's Sauce. I would open like three packets and just douse that succulent meat until it could no longer breathe. And then I'd dip each bite into a pool of sauce. YUM. So imagine my delight upon realizing that I could make the sauce myself. In a huge batch. With only a few ingredients. Heaven!


This tastes just like the real deal. It is sooo good atop a heaping pile of roast beef. I have a bit left in the fridge and plan to try it on burgers later in the week.


Do you love Arby's sauce as much as I do? What are you fast food indulgences?

If you don't have roast beef on hand, try adding this delicious sauce to these recipes: Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese, Leftover Lunch Meat Grilled Cheese and Sloppy Joes!


Enjoy! Have a great rest of your week!
