Recipe 26: French Dip Sandwiches (Super Easy and Really Yummy!)

This is at the top of my husbands list now. I didn't even know he liked French Dip Sandwiches but I was looking for something once again...easy and tasty to throw together for dinner and Rachel Ray came to the rescue with this one.

I added a slice of Provolone on Harrisons sandwich which he said added to the yumminess. This is a recipe I will definitely be making again.

French Dip Sandwiches
Recipe courtesy Rachael Ray
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 10 min
Level: Easy
Serves: 4 servings

2 tablespoons butter
1 shallot, chopped
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 jigger dry sherry, optional
2 cans beef consomme, found on broth and soups aisle or beef broth
1 1/2 pounds deli sliced roast beef
Grill seasoning blend for steak, such as Montreal Steak Seasoning Blend, or, coarse salt and pepper
4 torpedo sandwich rolls, split

In a large, shallow skillet over moderate heat, melt butter. Add shallots to butter and saute 2 minutes. Add flour to butter and shallot and cook a minute longer. Whisk in sherry and cook liquid out. Whisk in consomme in a slow stream. Bring sauce to a bubble and allow to simmer over low heat until ready to serve sandwiches.
Pile meat loosely across your cutting board or a large work surface. Season meat with grill seasoning or salt and black pepper. Set out 4 ramekins or small soup cups for dipping sauce, 4 dinner plates and 4 split torpedo rolls. To assemble, using a pair of kitchen tongs, dip meat into loose au jus sauce and pile into rolls. Set ramekins or cups with extra dipping sauce along side the sandwiches.
