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.

This was a great way to use up leftover beef! Because I had all the ingred. I was able to fix this in five min. for my husband's lunch. Thanks Uncle Bill, for a great time-saving recipe! Roxygirl

Thanks for a quick and easy success! DH is quite a fan of French Dip Sandwiches and was pleasantly surprised that they could be had "at home". Of course, there is now the request that they be produced more often - but that's no problem with this recipe. Suddenly my arsenal of quick/easy "no time, no energy" sandwiches has doubled (the other is grilled cheese with ham or bacon)

This is a great recipe! Quick and very simple to make as well. I made up a batch of Classic Onion Soup Mix Classic Onion Soup Mix at christmas and this was what I used for the onion soup. My husband just loved the french dip and said I needed to make this sandwich more often, that he could eat this everyday!! I loved it too!!! Thanks so much for sharing this fabulous recipe. I am most certain we will make this many of times.

I used this to fix a craving for roast beef, and it was yummy! I did not use deli meat, but sirloin sliced very thin that was sauteed for 2 minutes first and the juices used in the au jus with Uncle Bill's recipe above. I really enjoyed it!
