My family loves beef. So when I went through my recipe box looking for inspiration I came across these easy French dip sandwiches that I have not made in a very long time.
Not quite sure why I’ve not made them in a while because we usually have roast beef in the fridge, either leftover or from the deli. My family asks for them regularly.
When I found this recipe in my recipe box, I doctored it up just a bit with the addition of Worcestershire sauce. Something my husband is not a big fan of but doesn’t notice in this recipe.
I find the Worcestershire sauce adds a great flavor to the canned French onion soup. I’m not usually a fan of using canned soups but I do so for quick convenience. They can be a great beginning for sauces in some recipes.
