Easy French Dip Sandwich

Easy Menu Idea
One weekend, I was trying to figure out something fun to make for lunch for the family. I was looking in the refrigerator and pantry and came up with this Easy French Dip Sandwich creation. It is ridiculously easy and was a big hit. You will notice that I didn’t specify amounts of roast beef or cheese since you can make this as meaty and as cheesy as you want.

Level of Difficulty: Super Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 5 min; Cook Time – 10 min.


Boars Head Roast Beef
Provolone Cheese
1 Hoagie Roll per person
1 Can Campbell’s Beef broth

Preparing Easy French Dip Sandwich:

Preheat oven to 400 Degrees. Slice the hoagie rolls ALMOST in half (If you cut it all the way through, it’s no big deal..just do your best not to). Add your roast beef and top with cheese. Place on a baking sheet and pop in the oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Meanwhile, heat the beef broth up in a saucepan on a stove. When the sandwiches are ready, cut in a half and serve with the broth to dip them into! Really…it is just that easy.

    I love this idea Denise! We love a French dip but I am never sure what to do about au jus. Genius! Gonna try it out in the gang here.

    • Maria, let me know how it turns out. Eventually I’ll post another French Dip recipe that I have which cooks all day in the crock pot. The juice it cooks in is the au jus and it’s amazing!

    Sounds delish! I bet my kiddos would love this – side with a few carrot sticks & some fruit and lunch is served!

  3. This is where Denise would call me ‘snobby’ or ‘uppity’ but I made these with leftovers from our Christmas standing rib roast. I froze some of the leftovers and just pulled them out, heated them up and made these sandwiches. However, I used a dry au jus mix from the grocery store and didn’t like it. Next time, I’ll use beef broth!! Thanks for the idea, Denise!
