  • “Mmmm…used packaged Au Jus for dipping. A hit with the entire family.Here’s your 1006th review!Thank You Karen from Co.!”

  • “I used a slightly different prep, but came up with great (and easy!) French Dip sandwiches.I sautéed my onions in a combo of unsalted butter and olive oil, then added 2 cans of beef broth and a splash of au jus mix to the pan.I brought this almost to a boil, then added the slices of roast beef to heat through.Meanwhile, I buttered and toasted my French rolls.I layered the swiss cheese, slices of roast beef and onions between the rolls and dipped our sandwiches in the yummy au jus.Mmmm.Hearty and tasty comfort food for a cold night.”

  • “This is so easy and tastes terrific!!I mixed a packet of Au Jus sauce with my beef broth. I used olive oil instead of butter and while heating my roast beef I added a little Au Jus to it and chopped it up a little with my spatula.I also buttered my rolls and toasted them open faced a bit before putting the sandwiches together.My family loved it and request it every week now!Thank you for an easy and delicious recipe :)”
