French Dip

 French Dip
For a sandwich with more pizzazz than the traditional French dip, give this recipe a try. The seasonings give the broth a wonderful flavor, and the meat cooks up tender and juicy. This new version will soon be a favorite at your house, too. —Margaret McNeil, Germantown, Tennessee
