Hot Beef Po' Boys

Hubster is diabetic, so lately, I've been trying to make sure that we eat healthy. I redo my recipes that I have been making for years to try to make them diabetic friendly. But grease and diabetes don't go well together.
Hubster is a meat and potato kind of guy. Salads are ok with him, but they've got to have lots of meat of chicken in them.
I found this recipe in a Diabetic Cooking book. It looked good, but boy does it really taste good.
I of course modified it somehow, because that's just the way I am. I'm weird.
I used 7 grain sandwich rolls and used more spices than the recipe calls for. We also like onions and garlic, so I used more than what it called for. But play with it and make it your own.

Thanks for the recipe. Sounds yummy! We're wondering if my hubby isn't diabetic also (problems came up in our recent travels that lead us to be suspicious) so we're starting the research process and good recipes will definitely have to be part of the equation!
