Easy French Dip Sandwich


Yes, this week has been a sampling of Better Homes and Garden’s cookbook and I’m not afraid to give you another one of their wonderful classic recipes!  The only thing I did differently here is add a slice of provolone cheese to this yummy sandwich.  I just needed something in addition to all of that beef flavor.

Easy French Dip Sandwich


  • 1 large onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 14.5 ounce can beef broth
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 12 ounces thinly sliced deli roast beef (I used Boar’s Head)
  • French-style rolls, split


  • In a saucepan, cook onion in hot butter until tender; add garlic within the last 30 seconds.  Stir in broth, thyme, and pepper.  Bring to boiling; reduce heat.  Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.  Add the beef road.  Return to boiling; reduce heat.  Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes more.
  • Toast rolls.  Remove beef and onion from broth liquid.  Arrange on rolls.  Serve dish with the broth mixture for dipping in a small ramekin.
