Whether you’re dining out or making it at home, the French Dip Sandwich is sure to become one of your favorites.


To make the perfect French Dip Sandwich, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 500g (1 lb) thinly sliced roast beef
  • 4 French rolls or baguettes
  • 4 slices of provolone cheese (optional)
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 liter (4 cups) beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).

  2. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sliced onion, and sauté until the onion is soft and translucent.

  3. Push the onion and garlic to one side of the skillet, and add the thinly sliced roast beef. Cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side, just until heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. While the beef is cooking, slice the French rolls or baguettes lengthwise, leaving one side attached.

  5. If desired, place a slice of provolone cheese on each roll, and arrange the hot roast beef on top.

  6. Carefully wrap each sandwich in aluminum foil, and place them on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the rolls are slightly crispy.

  7. While the sandwiches are baking, prepare the dipping jus. In a saucepan, combine the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.

  8. Once the sandwiches are ready, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a couple of minutes.

  9. Serve the French Dip Sandwiches with a bowl of the hot dipping jus on the side. Dip each sandwich in the jus before taking a bite, and enjoy the explosion of flavors!


  • For an extra kick of flavor, you can add some horseradish sauce or Dijon mustard to the sandwiches before wrapping them in foil.
  • If you prefer a softer bread, you can lightly toast the rolls instead of baking them in the oven.
  • Make sure to use thinly sliced roast beef for the best texture in the sandwich.
