Not related to this post, but first of all, I just have to let you know that this tip for cutting onions works. I read it yesterday, and tried it last night. I’m amazed.

Back to the sandwich…

If you noticed on the recipe card from yesterday, there was a note to save the broth to make French dip sandwiches. You are going to want to do this, because this was the best sandwich I have had in a long time!! And it really doesn’t get any easier.

After we had our Sunday dinner, I stored the left-over pot roast in the fridge. I strained the remaining broth, and saved that in the fridge as well. The next day, cut the roast into thin slices. Put the broth in a pot over a medium flame, and add the sliced beef. You’ll want to cook this until everything is heated through.

In the meantime, take a bread of your choice and slice it in half lengthwise. If I would have been thinking ahead, I would have made some French bread on Sunday for these, but I wasn’t, so I picked up some 12-inch French bread loaves at the store that day. Put a couple of slices of provolone cheese on each side and stick under the broiler for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted. By the time this is done, the beef should be heated through. Stack some of the beef on the sandwich and serve with the broth for dipping. I like mine naked – just the bread, cheese, beef and broth, but my husband likes to stack his up, including lettuce, tomatoes, horseradish and Dijon mustard on his. However you stack it, this is one tasty sandwich, and the perfect way to use up the leftovers! In fact, as much as I loved the Sunday dinner, I liked the sandwich even more!!

    I did the same thing with leftovers from a prime rib roast not long ago (Didn’t think to post the sandwich tho…good idea). It was fantastic! Seeing yours just made me crave it all over again! Those were very tantalizing pictures of the roast yesterday, by the way.

    I love leftover pot roast anything! Thsi sandwich looks great and I am curious about how much of the soy sauce comes through in the recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Mary says:

    Well that seals it. I am just going to have to make this. I could so inhale that sandwich right now. And when I saw the picture I thought you made the French bread again just for the sandwich and I was WAY impressed!:)

  6. slush says:

    We have pot roast all the time, what a great suggestion for left overs!

  7. Steph says:

    Yummy! French dips are definitely one of my favorites! That sounds delicious, I think I’ll try it this week!

  8. Ryley says:

    Oh man these look good! I actually just made french dips the other night.. but I totally cheated..

    I bought some deli sliced roast beef. If you get the expensive stuff and have them cut it thick, it works really really well! I even grilled mine on a flat griddle to give it some extra flavor!!

    They were soooo good.. these pictures are making me crave it again!!

  9. PheMom says:

    So good! This is one of the only things I craved when I was pregnant last year. I’m with you though and just like them “naked.” My husband would do the same as yours though and load ‘er up.

    If my husband saw this, he’d be your stalker! Loved your roast recipe and this sandwich is just the best! I love meat leftovers, the beef has had a chance to mellow out and the flavor is even better. Great recipe, great follow-up with the sandwich!

    I’ll have to use violence on myself next time I make roast and not eat the whole darn thing! The sandwich rocks!

  13. Kevin says:

    That sandwich looks good. Using the roast beef leftovers to make French dip sandwiches is a great idea.

  14. Gigi says:
