  1. Preheat broiler. Place bread slices on a large baking sheet. Broil 5 to 6 inches from the heat for 2 to 4 minutes or until toasted, turning once.
  2. Arrange beef on bread slices. Top with cheese. Broil about 2 minutes more or until cheese is melted. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add coleslaw mix, the water, and caraway seeds to hot skillet. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until cabbage is wilted, stirring once or twice. Remove from heat. Stir in mayonnaise and cider vinegar.

  • Tip: For easy cleanup, cover baking sheet with foil before cooking sandwiches under broiler.
