A delicious dip for your french dip sandwiches. Better Than Bouillon is a brand of soup base its more of a paste.It's found with the bouillon. Just look for a soup base that lists beef as the first ingredient. I do not generally use the granules because we do not care for the flavor as much but you can use them.I would start with 1 tbs. of granules because of the salt content. If you could not find the Better Than Bouillon or a soup base product you could also use a canned beef broth or stock.
- 2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon better than bouillon beef base
- 2 teaspoons better than bouillon beef base
- 1⁄2 celery
- 1⁄2 small onion
- 1 pinch thyme
- salt and pepper
- Add all ingredients into sauce pan.
- Leave the celery and onion in big chunks for easy removal.
- Simmer until the vegetables are done.
- Strain, place in small bowls and enjoy.
This is very good. I also add some butter, red wine, Italian seasoning, a little bit of worchestershire sauce, some thomas'es sauce, and some carrots if I have them.
DH loved this! Fast and easy and very flavorful! I thinly sliced some leftover steak (rare) that I allowed to come to room temp before serving. Made an easy sandwich of it with toasted multi grain bread. FAST meal and very satisfied dh! Thanks
I use this recipe all the time, sometimes I throw in a carrot as well. I don't add any salt, it doesn't need it. Very good recipe and my go to when I need an au jus for my roast beef and then again for the French dip sandwiches I make from the leftovers.
