In my never ending battle of trying to eat out less often, I’m always looking for quick and easy recipes of some of my favorite items from my local fast food restaurants. This week I wanted to try my hand at one of my favorite hot sandwiches, a French Dip. Something about a sandwich dipped into a hot sauce just does it for me. And shockingly, it wasn’t even that hard to make at home, and was just as delicious as it is from the restaurant. And bonus, it’s cheaper to make it at home anyways! I was so pleased with it how it turned out that I knew I had to share the recipe with you guys. Let’s check it out shall we?
Quick and Easy French Dip Sandwich Recipe
You Will Need (this recipe makes 4 sandwiches):
- 1 package (about 7 oz) of sliced roast beef (thin)
- 1 onion (diced)
- 1 can beef broth
- 1 package Au Jus mix
- Sub rolls
- 8 slices provolone cheese
Instructions for making these quick and easy French dip sandwiches:
Step 1: First, in a pan start to caramelize your diced onions on med high heat until onions become translucent.
Step 2: Once your onions are ready add in 1 can of beef broth and your Au Jus mix, mix well and move heat down to low/medium and add in your package of roast beef let simmer.
Step 3: While your beef is simmering, grab your rolls, butter them and pop them under the broiler until slightly crispy. Pull them out and add your beef and 2 slices of cheese per sandwich.
Step 4: Once your cheese is added, go ahead and stick it back under the broiler until your cheese is nice and bubbly.
Step 5: Now, take the extra juice from your roast beef and pour it in a saucer and serve in beside your French Dip sandwich for a delicious meal.
See? I told you it was going to be easy! The whole thing from start to finish took under an hour to make. And all the ingredients for 4 people was 1/2 as much as it would cost to by them at a restaurant. If you ask me, that’s a win-win. It’s quickly become a favorite for game days around here. I hope if you try it you enjoy it as much as we did!
