  3. Drizzle 1½ oz. of BBQ sauce on top of the beef. Shingle 4 Muenster triangles on top of the beef and sauce. Place under a heated salamander to melt the cheese. Spoon 2 oz. of green goddess slaw on top of the cheese. Stack 1 oz. of tobacco onions down the center of the slaw. Place on a warmed serving plate.
