I have no idea why I’ve worried my entire life that I would find a french dip sandwich totally gross.  Its beef, bread, cheese, and flavored fat drippings.  Um, hello?!  This is probably the best sandwich I have ever put into my mouth!!  And all thanks to my mom’s birthday.  I made this for her as a pre-birthday celebration dinner before I moved to Michigan since I would miss her actual birthday by about a week.  And it. was. so. good.  Seriously.  I could eat this sandwich once a week for the rest of forever.  And ever.

If I had my actual total way I would use a meat slicer for deliciously meltinyomouth paper thin slices but alas I did not realize my grandfather had a meat slicer 2 houses away until after I’d already hacked at it with a knife.  No matter!  It was still delicious!  And that leftover sauce was just…the best part about this meal.  Hands down.

Most recipes I came across called for just plain ol’ water as the au jus base.  But do I listen to plain old recipes?  NO!  So I used beef broth instead and my mom (aka the toughest food critic EVER) said it was the best au jus ever.  Beef broth for the win!  Seriously though, what could be better than slow cooking a beef roast all day until it’s so tender it falls apart when you touch it, piling the shredded beef high on a toasted roll, piling more cheese on top of the aforementioned piled beef, melting it to a delicious, toasted perfection and then dipping it in its OWN FAT DRIPPINGS!  Nothing, y’all.  Nothing is better than this sandwich.

I briefly considered making my own rolls for this but I was in a time crunch so I picked up some from the store instead.  On clearance I might add.  I’m already dying for another one of these sandwiches and praying a beef roast goes on sale at the store asap.  Because if I had just one roast that I didn’t have to share with anyone else.  I’d be living with french dip au jus high life.

This is one of my families favorite meals! I usually use an onion soup mix but I hate using those things. So many extra ingredients we don't need. Thank you SO much for this recipe! Trying it soon. Pinned!

Thanks so much for the pin! I had no idea that onion soup mix was a common ingredient in this! But I hate packaged mixes, too. I hope your family loves it as much as mine does!
