Hearty French Dip Sandwiches Recipe

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

"This recipe was a huge hit, both with my husband and at a Super Bowl party.

I added a bay leaf, and a tsp crushed rosemary & thyme, as well as some garlic cloves and peppercorns. The Parmesan/butter spread on the bread really added something. I will be making this again, and again, and again!!"
