French Dip Sandwich

French Dip Sandwiches are the best!  I got a hankering for one the other day and headed to the pantry to see what I could find.  I had some deli roast beef, provolone cheese, some small hoagie rolls and a can of beef broth.  Perfect!

I read the labels on most of the deli sliced roast beef and found that the Great Value brand had less fat than the others I looked at and it was a few cents less!  It turned out to be quite tasty as well.  Now for the steps for the sandwich:

  1. Slice some onion (right bottom corner) and saute them in a bit of butter in a saucepan.  I just cook them until they begin to soften.
  2. Add the can of beef broth to the pan.  You can also use beef bouillon.  I added a couple shots of Worcestershire sauce, but this is entirely up to you.
  3. Bring the broth up to a boil and simmer for a few minutes to incorporate the onion flavor.
  4. Add the beef to the broth and leave it in just long enough to heat it up.
  5. I dressed my hoagie roll with a bit of horseradish sauce, but mustard and/or mayo are tasty as well.  You can also toast the roll.
  6. Using tongs, remove the beef and some slices of onion from the broth and place on the roll.
  7. Top with provolone cheese.  Of course, if you prefer another type of cheese it will be good as well - this is your sandwich!
  8. Pour a bit of the broth into a small bowl for dipping.
  9. ENJOY!

This is a quick, easy and tasty sandwich.  You can easily make one or more to enjoy now and reheat to make another for later.

SMALL LIVING TIP:  You can easily freeze serving size amounts of the broth and beef for future French Dip Sandwiches!  You can either thaw in the microwave or stove top.
