Hearty French Dip Sandwiches
This is a very favorite meal of my husband, who is nicknamed "The Beef Man," because we sell USDA Beef in our retail store. Served with a green salad, this makes a wonderful evening meal. It would also work great for sandwiches at a football game party.Dorothy Connelley, Belle Fourche, South Dakota
