Easy French Dip Sandwiches

Roast Beef Sandwich
This is a quick and easy main dish. It’s made with deli roast beef from the grocery store but if you have roast beef left over from Sunday dinner, you can use that. Be sure and slice it thin.

For the meat

2 packets of au jus mix (to make 4 cups)
1 lb sliced deli roast beef
1 teaspoon garlic salt or to taste

In a large skillet, make the au jus according to package directions.
Cut or tear the roast beef into 1-2 inch strips and add to the au jus. Stir the garlic salt into the beef-au jus mixture.
Cook on lowest heat for 10 minutes. When ready to serve, the mixture should be hot but further cooking is not necessary.

For the buns

6 hoagie buns
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon garlic salt or to taste

While the meat is heating, prepare the buns by opening all the buns and spreading them face up on a baking sheet. Spread butter on each open side of the buns. Sprinkle garlic salt on each. Toast in the oven on broil for 4-8 minutes or until they are golden.

To Serve

With tongs, remove roast beef from au jus mixture and place a desired amount on each bun. With a ladle, fill small cups with au jus and serve with the sandwiches for dipping.
