The Arbynator is a great sandwich, what Arby's did was kick their classic Roast Beef 'n Cheddar up a notch by, well, just read the description from the restaurant itself: The Arbynator has Roast Beef, Cheese Sauce, Horsey Sauce®, Arby’s Sauce® and Curly Fries, all in the same sandwich. Or in other words, it is the most Arby’s sandwich Arby’s has ever made. Available in Classic, Double and Half Pound sizes.
It's my favorite sandwich from Arby's! So the least I could do, is come up with a copy cat recipe so I can make it at home, right?
What's not to like..... Roast beef, cheese sauce, a delightful combination of Arby's Sauce and Horsey Sauce, topped with seasoned curly fries and served on a garlic butter toasted bun? (yes, the garlic butter is my personal add, so too is the seasoning on the curly fries, a little more than just salt and the thinly sliced roast beef warmed in that yummy garlic butter....). This sandwich is another dose of YUM and I've kicked it up a notch with my own personal twists. It's easy to prepare on the stove top in a couple of small frying pans over low heat, just enough to melt the butter, warm up the deli sliced roast beef, melt the cheddar cheese (put a lid on it) and toast the bun. Prepare the curly fries according to the package instructions. Put the Horsey and Arby's sauces on the toasted bun, assemble the sandwich and enjoy!
And this sandwich only cost me about $1.50 to make at home, that's FAR cheaper than the restaurant price and BETTER TASTING! Yes, better tasting because I added my own personal touches - and you can too, easily!
- Garlic butter toasted bun: $0.12 (Arby's serves the sandwich on a sesame seed bun)
- Roast Beef sliced deli thin: $0.78 (Arby's roast beef is NOT warmed in garlic butter)
- Cheese: $0.25
- Curly Fries: $0.25 (Seasoned with my signature rub, not just salt)
- Horsey & Arby's Sauce combo: $0.10
