Beef Sandwich Au Jus Dipping Sauce

Andy Anderson !


Okay, you’ve got the ingredients for an excellent French dip sandwich; however, you lack the dipping sauce (au jus). I HATE it when that happens.

This is a recipe for making some sauce that will compliment a nice French dip sandwich, or any other beef you choose to drizzle it on. It’s simple to make, and it doesn’t require cooking any beef.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
