French Dip Sandwiches

French Dip Sandwiches

Tonight I tried a fantastic recipe for homemade French Dip Sandwiches. They were out of this world! My kids loved them too. Although it took a bit of time to put them together, the process was very simple and well worth the time. Halfway through dinner I realized I didn't take a picture, which is why the picture below shows only a half of a sandwich. I guess I was a bit eager to eat! :) Oh well, at least I got something.  Recipe follows. Enjoy!!

















Ingredients:
1 large onion, sliced and separated into rings
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon butter
1 14-ounce can beef broth
1/2 teaspoon  dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
12 ounces thinly sliced cooked roast beef
4 French-style rolls, split

In a large saucepan cook onion and garlic in hot butter until tender. Stir in broth, oregano, and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Add beef and return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes more until beef is heated through.

Remove meat and onion from broth mixture and arrange on rolls. If desired, serve with dishes of broth mixture for dipping.

***Personal Note:  I used yellow onions because of their sweetness; I used Oscar Meyer sliced roast beef from the lunchmeat section of Meijer - it was perfect!; I also used hoagie rolls from the bakery. I served our sandwiches with sides of au jus.
