Easy French Dip Sandwiches - Such an easy meal for busy weeknights or a delicious and filling lunch.

I’m over at I Heart Nap Time today, sharing my favorite Easy Homemade French Fries! They are the perfect compliment to my all time favorite sandwich – the French Dip! Don’t they just look beautiful together?

The French Dips are super easy to make. Now, you could really go crazy and cook the beef yourself and make the Au Jus to go with it and even bake your own bread. But why go to all that trouble when this method is really just as good?

When I feel like I’m in the mood for these sandwiches I head to my local grocery store deli. I choose the rarer of the roast beefs they have and have them slice it for me, but not too thin. I prefer the rarer meat because I’m going to be baking the meat in the oven and I don’t want it to get too tough.

While I’m there I also grab some rolls. I like the bolillo rolls because they are nice and soft and not as dense as french rolls, but either works fine in this case. Slice the rolls in half lengthwise and place bottom halves on a baking sheet. Top with a generous helping of roast beef and place under the broiler of our oven for 5-7 minutes or until meat is nice and hot.

Top the meat with slices of your favorite cheese (I like Provolone for these sandwiches), and add the empty halves of the bread to the baking sheet. Place back under the broiler for a few minutes or until cheese is mostly melted and bread is nice and toasty.

Place the tops back on the sandwiches and serve with a side of Au Jus for dipping. I use the term “Au Jus” loosely since I really just grab a can of Beef Consume or broth and heat it up.

    You HAVE to try making these with Campbells French Onion Soup cans! Do not add water. Just warm up the soup and dip your sandwich into it. That’s what we do and its absolutely delicious! I even dip my roast beef into the soup before baking on the sandwiches.

    Hi everyone I just wanted to share a short cut for heating your beef……..I don’t mean to change the recipe because I feel it just disrespectful to the person that shared it! But a great way to heat the meat quick is to dip it in the warm au jus for about 5 to 10 seconds and it makes the meat moist. We use to do this at a steakhouse I worked at..I hope this helps with this great recipe ☺
