The French Dip Sandwiches

The French Dip Sandwich is a great beef recipe if you want to deviate from the typical roast or steak. Rest the juicy beef slices on the crispy French loaf and let it sink soft from the warm meaty juices. Top it off with Swiss or any other cheese of your choice. What makes this sandwich special is the combination of easy preparation, simple serving and scrumptious taste.
