Directions:

  1. To make the broth, place all of the broth ingredients in a 1-quart pot. Stir to mix, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the flavors are well blended.
  2. While the broth is simmering, coat a medium-sized nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray, and preheat over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, onion, and sherry, and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Cover the skillet periodically if it begins to dry out. (The steam from the cooking vegetables will moisten the skillet.) Add a little more sherry if the skillet gets too dry.
  3. Slice the French bread or rolls in half lengthwise, and lay the pieces open on a flat surface. Arrange 3 ounces of beef on the bottom half of each piece. Top with some of the sautéed mushrooms and onions and 1 ounce of the cheese. Replace the tops of the sandwiches, and cut each one in half.
  4. Arrange the sandwiches on a microwave-safe platter. Cover with a paper towel, and microwave on high power for 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Alternatively, wrap each sandwich in aluminum foil and bake at 400°F for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Place the sandwiches on serving plates, accompany each plate with a dish of the broth, and serve.
