Best Arby’s Beef and Cheddar Copycat Recipe

Arby's Beef n' Cheddar sandwich copycat

This is a copycat recipe for Arby’s Beef and Cheddar.

Scroll to bottom for full recipe card with ingredients.

I would eat at Arby’s everyday if I could but I don’t live very close to one so I decided to try to duplicate the Beef and Cheddar sandwich.

That may sound easy because it’s just a roast beef sandwich with some cheese and red ranch sauce on an onion bun.

What makes it difficult is getting that red ranch sauce right. While it’s not a homemade red ranch sauce, I think the dressing I found is super close to having the perfect flavor. Give it a try yourself!

Serve it with these Beer Battered Onion Rings, this Potato Salad for Two or this Arby’s Jamocha Shake Copycat.

How to make an Arby’s Beef and Cheddar copycat:

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

Lay a sheet of aluminum foil flat on the counter.

Place the thin sliced roast beef in the center of the foil and fold up all four sides to completely enclose the beef.

Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

When the beef is almost done, heat the cheddar cheese sauce in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds or until heated through.

Place the bottom half of the onion bun on a plate and top with the Country French with Orange Blossom Honey Dressing.

Hi Nikki, if you want to heat the roast beef you can. Preheat your oven to 400 F. Lay a sheet of aluminum foil flat on the counter. Place your deli roast beef in the center of the foil and fold up all four sides to completely enclose the beef. Bake the roast beef for 10 to 15 minutes. I will add this note to the recipe. Thanks for your question :)

I so enjoy your recipes. Have tried many of them and can't thank you enough. On this one, however, I'm at a loss. Please if you can tell me where to find the Cheddar Cheese Sauce or if I can substitute melted Cheddar Cheese. Thanks again for the wonderful recipes and please keep them coming.

Hi Sharron. Cheddar Cheese Sauce usually comes in a can or jar and is sold in most grocery stores. I usually find it in the Mexican section of the International Foods Isle. Sometimes it is near wherever the tortilla chips are sold. I believe Walmart carries it too. If you can't find it in your store, you can probably use Cheese Whiz if your store carries that. There are recipes you could search for homemade cheddar cheese sauce that could work as a substitute. I hope you are able to find it. :)
