    1. Dissolve the cornstarch well with the milk in the food processor bowl. Add the beer, bay leaves, margarine, port wine, cornstarch, tomato paste, and chili. Grind.
    2. In a saucepan, heat the mixture until it boils and thickens a little, always stirring so that it doesn't stick to the bottom.
    3. Make a sandwich with the bread, ham, sausages, roast beef, and cover with cheese.
