Easy French Dip Sandwiches are a classic, effortless meal, perfect for a quick lunch or a casual dinner. Featuring tender slices of roast beef, melted cheese, and a flavorful au jus for dipping, these sandwiches are both satisfying and delicious.


  • 1 lb thinly sliced deli roast beef
  • 4 French rolls or hoagie buns
  • 4 slices of Provolone or Swiss cheese
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Butter (for toasting the buns)
  • Optional: Horseradish or mustard for serving


  1. Preheat your oven’s broiler.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the beef broth, sliced onion, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and dried thyme. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. While the broth is simmering, split the rolls or buns and lightly butter the insides. Toast them under the broiler until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Warm the roast beef in the simmering broth for about 2-3 minutes. This step ensures the beef is hot and adds extra flavor.
  5. Assemble the sandwiches: Place the warmed beef on the toasted rolls and top each with a slice of cheese.
  6. Return the sandwiches to the broiler for another minute or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Carefully remove the sandwiches from the oven.
  8. Strain the broth to remove the onions and garlic, and serve it in small bowls for dipping.
  9. Serve the sandwiches hot with the au jus on the side. Add horseradish or mustard if desired.
