How to Make Easy French Dip Sandwiches

While my oven is preheating at 350 degrees, I like to put my sandwiches together.  I like to use french bread sandwich rolls.  I pile roast beef on one side and cheese on the other.  For these sandwiches I used provolone but I also love to use baby Swiss.  In fact, I think I prefer Swiss cheese over provolone on these sandwiches, but only slightly.

Once the oven is hot enough, it's time to pop the sandwiches in.  By the way, I love to line my baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up.  

How Do You Make Au Jus?

While the sandwiches are baking, I heat up a pan of easy au jus.

Wait? What is au jus mix?  The answer: The fastest way to make an easy au jus.  Au jus sauce is that deliciousness that's left in the pan after you've cooked a beef roast.  Do you have one of those on hand?  Probably not.  So if you want to enjoy these french dip sandwiches right away, an au jus mix is the way to go. All you do is add water to the mix and heat it in a pan.  It doesn't get much easier than that!

The sandwiches need about 8 minutes to get nice and toasty.I then like to add a little bit of mayonnaise.  Once the sandwiches are closed up and the au jus is in a little dipping saucer, it's time to dig in.

So yummy!  I think the hubby was really happy to be home for lunch when I made these.  I love how a good meal doesn't have to be complicated.

What to serve with French dip sandwiches

When I'm eating a delicious roast beef dip sandwich I usually just go for potato chips or fries as a side.  But you may enjoy this Sun Dried Tomato pasta salad from Midwest Foodie or this summer corn salad from Cooking with Carlee.  Both sound amazing.  And to drink try homemade blackberry soda.
