French Dip Sandwich


     This sandwich is not at all from French cuisine, however just a plain old American creation. Interestingly named for the fact that you utilize a crispy loaf of French bread to create this delicious, simple, and packed full of flavor sandwich. What is better than a juicy sandwich that you dip into a wonderful combination of juices created by cooking the beef for this dish. "Jus", which is French for juice, is created by the drippings from the meat you are cooking. "Au jus", simple means "with juice", so when you see a sandwich or any dish for that matter that is accompanied by au jus it means it comes with the juice it is made in or creates from the cooking process. Enjoy! French Dip Sandwich.
