A super simple, easy and great tasting sandwich made it to the table this evening. They were swallowed quickly, but the super secret part is that it took me 10 minutes to put together and I liked it better than any French Dip I have had in restaurants.
I have another secret. The bread is my new favorite and it comes from Walmart. In their bakery, they have the market loaves for $1.00, I get the loaf that is not sliced, it seems to hold their flavor longer. I have tried the garlic and this time I tried the everything topping. For a buck, it is a very good deal.
We had onion rings with these, but baked beans or chips would be good side dishes too.
- 1½ pounds sliced thin deli roast beef.
- 6 slices of sliced provolone cheese
- Bread- either sliced think market bread, or a hoagie roll.
- 1 package of Au Jus mix, or a can of beef consomme soup
- Melted Butter
- In a saucepan, prepare the Au Jus packet per the directions, or you can use consomme soup, diluted with ½ cup of water. When warm, add the sliced roast beef and heat to simmering.
- Butter one side of the sliced bread, grill on a skillet, add a slice of cheese, so that begins to melt as the bread grills.
- Using a tongs, place roast beef on the bread and serve.
- Place Au Jus in a separate bowl for dunking.
- If you have time, you can also add grilled onions or peppers to jazz it up a little bit.
