Without a doubt, French Dip sandwiches rank very high on my extensive list of favorite things to eat.
I think it's the combination of the meat soaked in all that yummy gravy and then dipping it in more gravy after each bite. I don't know, it's like an experience all itself.
But truthfully to make a really good French Dip you need to have time, or at least that is what I always thought, I thought that I had to have the meat cooking in a slow cooker for hours and get it just right.
Then one day, I was running late and when it came time to put something on the table, the family requested French Dip Sandwiches and at first I froze, how on earth was I supposed to do that in just a few minutes?
So I threw somethings together and this is the result and let me tell you, it tastes really good and the family love it.
Quick French Dip Sandwiches
4 tablespoons butter
1 small onion, finely diced
2 packets brown onion gravy
2 cups of cold water
thinly sliced beef
In a large skillet, add the butter and the onions. Cook for a few minutes over medium heat until onions are transparent, add the sliced beef and continue cooking for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Fill the hoagie buns with the beef, spoon some of the gravy onto a separate dish for dipping. Enjoy!
Honestly, the messier, the better.
