Easy French Dips

I saw a recipe recently in a Family Circle magazine (I think) for French Dips.  I adapted it to make a quicker version, using deli-sliced roast beef.  We have a grocery store nearby that sells nitrate-free deli roast beef.  Here's my easy version.  I hope you try it!

2 T. butter
1 medium onion, sliced
1 cup lager beer
1 can low sodium beef broth
1 T. soy sauce ( this adds a good flavor)
freshly ground pepper
1 lb. thinly sliced deli roast beef
6 split-top rolls

In a non-stick skillet, melt butter & add onion.  Cook, stirring occasionally for 5-10 minutes.

Add the beer, broth. soy sauce & pepper.  Bring to a simmer & cook 3-5 minutes.

Add the roast beef & heat through.

While the roast beef is heating, toast the rolls under the broiler for 1-2 minutes.

Divide among the rolls.  Serve the juice in a small bowl for dipping.  I like to add a slice of provolone on top.  Yum!

Note:  You could also saute' green pepper strips & mushrooms with the onions, if you like.
Serves 6


  1. Yummy!!! Sounds so good. I love melting cheese on mine too!!!

  2. These look so good! French Dips are one of my favorite sandwiches. The recipe seems quick and easy for a week-night supper and the jus sounds just delicious for dipping. The provalone is my kind of gilding the lily!

    I'm newly following from Foodie Friday. I'd love to have you stop by and say hello!
