Servings: 2loaves of sandwiches
2Italian loaves of bread with a thick crust
1stick1/2 cup butter, at room temp
1pack of Au Jus mix
1tsp.Herb and Garlic powderYou can also use a little garlic powder and your favorite dried herb
approx 1 lb. of deli roast beef
1package of sliced provolone cheese
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a small bowl, place butter, 1 tablespoon of Au Jus mix, garlic and herb mix, Worcestershire, and onion powder. Stir until well combined.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Set a loaf of bread in the center and cut into 3/4 inch slices all the way down the length of the loaf, but don't cut all the way through to the bottom, just close. Using a small spatula or butter knife, divide about 1/4 of your butter mixture evenly between each cut of the bread.
Place a folded piece of roast beef and 1/2 piece of provolone between every other cut of the bread. Make sure don't stuff every other space so you can have pull apart sandwiches. :)
Spread another ¼ of the butter mixture onto the top of the bread and fold up the aluminum foil to enclose it completely. Repeat with the other loaf of bread.
Once both loaves are securely wrapped, place them in the oven on a baking sheet for about 10-15 minutes or until the cheese to be melted thoroughly and for the crust to get crispy.
While the sandwiches are in the oven, combine the rest of the Au Jus mix with 2 cups of water or beef stock in a small saucepan and stir. Bring to a boil, stirring often, and then bring it down to a simmer to thicken a bit until the bread is done. Serve your herb french dip sandwiches with bit of the Au Jus gravy for dipping and enjoy this hearty and flavorful supper!
