French Dip Sandwiches

This is my mother’s recipe, it is an easy and fast week-night meal.

French Dip Sandwiches

Serves 2 to 4, prep: 5 min, cook: 10 min
  • 1/2-1 lb high quality deli roast beef, thinly sliced
  • 1 can beef consomme
  • 1 can concentrated french onion soup
  • sliced provolone
  • hoagie rolls
  • butter and garlic bread sprinkle
  1. Combine soups in a pot on the stove top and heat.
  2. Add roast beef, breaking up the slices, simmer.  I usually use about 1/2 lb for 3 sandwiches.
  3. Slice hoagies and toast lightly under broiler.  Keep an eye on them! I usually go through an entire bag of hoagies for a 2 person dinner because I set the first batch on fire.
  4. Butter toasted buns and sprinkle with garlic powder or garlic bread sprinkle or get fancy and rub with a slice of fresh garlic.
  5. Spread mayo or prepared horseradish or whatever you like on one side of bread.  Using tongs so the liquid will drain back into pot, pile meat onto bread.
  6. Cover with sliced provolone and return sandwiches to broiler.  You’re just warming them until the cheese melts! It will only take a minute!
  7. Put the tops on and slice on the horizontal (that makes them fancy).  Serve au jus from the pot on the side.

For my kids, I usually make hot ham and cheese melts cause they don’t eat.  I would rather them not eat the cheap deli ham than the expensive filet of roast beef.

About chaos

cha·os -noun 1. a condition or place of great disorder or confusion. My chaotic kitchen is the result of three kids, two adults, dog, cat, and fish, a food obsession, a wine drinking hobby, and too few hours in the day. Between trying to feed a family of five healthy, happy meals, watching my weight, saving my pennies, and staying partially sane I have picked up a few tricks along the way. So here they are: the very best tips, tricks, and recipes from my chaotic kitchen-to yours!
