      Uncle Bill, this is the way they made French Dip Sammies when I worked at a restaurant 35 years ago in California! They were the best! When I make them here at home these days I put a slice of provalone cheese on them like they did at the restaurant, and wrap them up in foil and warm them in the oven. Thanks for posting this recipe, hopefully people will enjoy more French Dips. We just love your recipes. In fact your roast beef in the crockpot has become a family tradition on Christmas night! YUM! :)

      A very enjoyable lunch this was. Used up leftover roast beef and heated the beef in some the dip and let it marinade for a couple of hours and then reheated. It was great( and would do this step again) also sauted some onion with garlic and pepper to put over the beef. This recipe will go into my favorites cookbook. Thanks Uncle Bill.
