Using this homemade deli style roast beef as opposed store brought reduces your sodium intake and removes all the preservatives that allow a deli to keep meat on the shelf for such long periods of time.

You will have to make up your own mind after you try this recipe. I think you will wave store brought deli style roast beef goodbye.
