Is there a way to get deli-thin slices of roast beef without a slicing machine?

greygarious | Mar 26, 200908:33 PM     43

There are a few cheaper cuts of beef that are too tough for ordinary roast beef but if sliced thinly enough, across the grain, make good sandwiches. Without a deli slicer, however, that's a tall order. I'm wondering if the slicing blade of a food processor would work, or a mandoline, if the cooked meat were refrigerated or semi-frozen. Does anyone know any tricks, or is the only option a really good knife and a lot of patience?
