Easy French Dip Sandwiches
(Recipe adapted from FoodNetwork.com)
1 and 1/2 pounds deli roast beef, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons butter
1 shallot, chopped
1 tablespoon flour
2 – 10.5 oz. cans beef consommé (found in the soup aisle)
1/2 cup water
about 1 teaspoon steak seasoning
2 tablespoons cooking sherry* (optional but yummy)
5 long shaped sandwich rolls
Directions: Season sliced meat with a little steak seasoning and set aside. Heat butter in a deep skillet and cook shallots for a few minutes until tender. Whisk in flour and cook for another couple minutes. Add sherry and cook off liquid. Add beef consommé and water while slowly stirring. Cook sauce until bubbling and then turn down heat. Add meat and let warm through for a few minutes. Serve using kitchen tongs to place meat on sliced buns and serve sauce on the side for dipping if desired.
Makes 5-6 sandwiches. I am a big fan of this recipe due to the brilliant flavors of sherry and shallots. It tastes fancy, but comes together in just a few minutes! Enjoy. 🙂
