Leftover prime rib subs, need cheese help.

I have leftover prime rib from our Father's Day meal. It came out perfect and medium rare, however, there is only enough of it left to make some nice subs for dinner. I am foing to roast peppers and onions, but, I am up in the air over the type of cheese I should use. Havarti, mozz, swiss?? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  1. Maytag blue or gorgonzola. Yummy with beef. If you're not blue cheese fans, swiss or cheddar maybe.

      Oh wonderful, i didn't think about gorgonzola. Maybe I'll do a French Brie for my blue-hater of a hubby, thanks!!

        Tho' he hates blue he might stil like gongonzola, especially if you can get the dolce. I also like sharp Cheddar with beef.

    2. I n Philly they would recommend some Whiz, but I like the idea of blue or brie.

      1. I would go for a mozz or provolone, but blue cheese is one of my favorites. Just never thought about putting it on a prime rib sandwich. I had one at a restaurant and they used a smoked provolone that was very good. Are you going to have au jus for dipping into? One of my favorite meals right there. I wish I could come over!

          Oh yes, plenty of au jus!! I'm so excited, i can't leave the office quick enough. Invite next time i have a little more rib left :)

          1. re: danhole

            I just think mozzarella and provolone could be a little namby pamby with beef. Especially with a litte horseradish on it :)

          2. I would allow the beef to remain the star of the show!!! Either no cheese or maybe white cheddar?......Wait!!!! Is that a slight hint of horseradish I detect???

            Have Fun!

            1. Havarti sounds kind of good to me!

                I like Havarti also as well as Jarlsberg. HELL, there's hardly a cheese I don't like

                  Put cheese on almost anything and I'll eat it.
