Hi again Nap Time readers! Jen here from Yummy Healthy Easy back with another fabulously easy recipe! Have you ever had a French Dip sandwich? You know, those sandwiches filled with tons of flavorful roast beef slices and a yummy little bowl of broth on the side to dip it in?? Yum.


One of my favorite local diners has these amazing French Dip Sandwiches and I die every time I eat one. There’s something so comforting about a roast beef sandwich on crusty bread that you dip in warm au jus.

Easy French Dip Sandwiches

I started craving them big time when I was pregnant with my son and found the best and easiest recipe EVER. Only a handful of ingredients and it takes about 10 minutes from start to finish! You can’t beat that (perfect for busy week nights).

I’ve used all sorts of rolls and bread and found that I love a good baguette warmed and cut into fourths. You can find them in your local bakery at most grocery stores. Using pre-packaged roast beef lunch meat (or cut from your local deli) makes this recipe super easy. The au jus is so flavorful and is the best part of the meal! Toasting them in the oven for just a few minutes takes them over the top and makes the cheese nice and melted. You will love these Easy French Dip Sandwiches!Easy French Dip Sandwiches

Easy French Dip Sandwiches


  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 (10-oz) cans beef consommé (find it in the soup aisle)
  • 1 tsp. steak seasoning (like McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning)
  • S&P, to taste
  • 1 lb. lean roast beef, thinly sliced
  • baguette, cut into fourths or your favorite rolls, for serving
  • thinly sliced provolone


In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and heat for 1 minute. Add shallots and sauté for 2 minutes. Add flour and sauté 2 more minutes.
Slowly whisk in beef consommé. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer. Add steak seasoning and pepper.
Separate roast beef and place in the au jus sauce until warm. Using tongs, place an equal portion of beef on each section of baguette or rolls. Top with a slice of provolone cheese, if desired. Bake at 400°F or until cheese has melted.

Serve with a small bowl of the extra au jus for dipping. Enjoy!

    Super yummy!!

  6. So is the roast beef the kind from the deli or do you cook a roast beef and slice it and put it on your sandwiches?

  7. I just made these and they were excellent! Thank you!

  8. Wow! We enjoyed these tonight and they were a huge hit! My husband said, “these should be our new go to on busy nights and well, any night really.” He is not one who usually likes new recipes, but this will be something we have often. Thank you!!

  9. I’m making my menu for this coming month! This looks quick and easy as well as delicious!! Thanks for sharing!!

  11. I made these for dinner last night using Boarshead London Broil roast beef. SO good. While it’s more expensive than my standard dinner, we had leftovers for dinner tonight and have enough leftovers for one lunch tomorrow. Thanks for sharing the recipe, will definitely make it again!

  12. Forgot to add, I put all the meat in the au jus to make it less rare and made a huge pan of caramelized onions as a topping, along with the provolone. Definitely next level!
