French Dip Sandwiches are an easy weeknight staple in our house.  The kids pick out the onions of course, but love dunking them in the sauce.  A perfect quick dinner when paired with one of our favorite sides.

  2. Lay sliced roast beef over the onions and add stock, allow to simmer slowly 10 to 20 minutes
  3. Assemble sandwiches in buns with cheese and broil until cheese is melted. Meanwhile turn up heat to medium to reduce the beef stock and onion mixture, this will be your dipping sauce
  4. Cut sandwiches diagonally to allow for easy dipping! Serve everyone their own little cup of sauce
