If you follow me on Twitter, this is probably old news to you but I thought I would share on the good ol’ blog too. My husband recently came home after being gone since January. I didn’t tell you guys because I’m paranoid cautious, but don’t feel bad because I didn’t even tell my Facebook friends. But like I said: old news. The best thing about having him home is that I have a reason to cook things besides pasta and eggs! I’m taking full advantage of that and kicked off this week with something I’ve been wanting to try forever. The French dip!
So this sandwich, which I don’t think I’ve ever had before, is just beef that’s slow cooked in a flavorful broth (or jus, if you’re fancy) and then put on crusty bread with cheese. Then you get the dip the entire sandwich in the broth that you cooked the beef in!
Fantastic does not describe how good these are! We had these for an early dinner and then a few hours later when my husband went to workout, I snuck into the kitchen to have another. Then when he came home, I caught him in the kitchen having another one! This is a definite keeper and I see myself making it frequently once winter hits.
