French Dip Au Jus

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Amyk4

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.

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.
