These Hot Roast Beef Sandwiches (aka French Dip) are so easy and so good. This was my first time making them and they were a hit! My hubby (he thinks I should refer to him as my HOT Husband) was very impressed with my mean cooking skills - he loved them! I cut them in 3 pieces and put a toothpick in them for the little kids. It made them easier for the little ones to handle and dip. And they LOVED to dip!
1 pound deli sliced roast beef
1 (10.5 oz) can beef consomme
4 slices provolone cheese
4 large hard rolls (I used telera rolls)
Pour consomme in a sauce pan and reconstitute (I used Campbells - 1 can water to reconstitute). Add roast beef and cook* over medium low heat heat until it simmers. Slice rolls and butter the top half. Divide roast beef between the 4 rolls and place on the bottom half. Place 1 slice of cheese on the roast beef on each roll. Place on a baking sheet and broil until the cheese is melted - 1 to 2 minutes (I use the next to top rack - watch carefully so it doesn't burn!). Serve with the consomme to dip in.
*Could also be cooked in a crock pot on low for 3 hours.
