Ingredients for Panini
3/4 pound sliced roast beef from your grocery deli
8 slices swiss cheese
1 sweet red pepper cleaned and sliced into 1/4 inch slices
1 sweet green pepper cleaned and sliced into 1/4 inch slices
1 med. Vidalia onion peeled, halved and sliced into 1/4 inch half moon slices
8 slices of a good hearty sourdough bread from your bakery
2 TBS EVOO 1 to saute onions and peppers, the other to lightly brush outside of bread slices

Au Jus
3 cups beef broth
3 TBS finely diced onion
1 tsp finely diced garlic
1 TBS flour
4-5 dashes Worchestershire Sauce
Pepper to taste

Directions: Slice peppers and onions into 1/4 inch strips. Saute in EVOO until slightly tender but not soggy. Set aside. Lightly brush the outside of bread slices with EVOO. Layer bread slice with cheese, roast beef, peppers and onions, another slice of cheese and top with bread slice. Place Panini on a hot grill pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Place a heavy cast iron skillet over sandwich to weigh it down. When 1st side is done, flip and repeat. Serve with Au Jus.

Meanwhile, in a medium sauce pan, heat EVOO and gently cook diced onion over medium heat careful not to brown onion. When onion is tender, add minced garlic. Cook 1 minute more. Add 4-5 dashes Worchestershire Sauce and flour. Stirring mixture with a wire whisk, cook flour for 30 seconds to 1 minute careful not to burn. Slowly add beef broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until ready to serve.
