What Is A French Dip Sandwich?

A French dip sandwich is an iconic American classic dish that consists of thinly sliced roast beef placed between two slices of bread. The key ingredient for this sandwich is au jus sauce which is made from the beef’s natural juices mixed with beef stock, herbs, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and sometimes Worcestershire sauce. As its name implies, the best way to enjoy a French dip sandwich is to dip it into the au jus sauce before taking a bite.

This scrumptious dish has been around since at least 1908 when it was first served at Phillipe’s restaurant in Los Angeles. Since then it has become one of America’s most beloved foods enjoyed by millions every day. Today there are many different variations of the French dip which include using other types of meat such as pork or lamb in addition to different kinds of cheese and toppings like lettuce or tomato.

How To Make A French Dip Sandwich At Home

Making a French dip sandwich requires very few ingredients and not much time at all. All you need are two slices of bread (usually an Italian roll), roast beef deli meat (or whichever type of meat you prefer), swiss cheese (or whichever type you prefer!) au jus sauce (which can be store-bought or homemade), butter (for grilling) and your favorite toppings. Once you have all your ingredients gathered together simply layer them onto one slice of bread (the cheese should go on top!), place the other slice on top and spread butter over both sides before placing it onto a hot grill pan for 3-4 minutes each side until golden brown. Serve with your favorite sides like mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables for a complete meal!
