Chef Jamie’s French Dip Sandwiches

Yields: 2 Sandwiches

Club Roll                               2

Swiss Cheese                     6-8 thin slices (muenster, pepper jack, gouda if desired)

Roast Beef, sliced thin     10 oz

Oregano                               1/4 tsp

Garlic Butter, see recipe  as needed

Beef Broth                            2 1/2 cups

Olive Oil                                1 Tbl

Garlic Butter

Butter, unsalted, soft        3 Tbl

Garlic Powder                     1/4 tsp

Kosher Salt                          pinch

Black Pepper                      pinch

  1. To make Garlic Butter: Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat the 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  Place the roast beef in the pan and begin to cook over a medium high heat with the oregano.  Cook the roast beef until hot and the meat begins to brown a bit.  Pour about 1/4 cup of beef broth in the pan and allow to cook until the liquid evaporates.  Once the meat is ready, set aside on a cutting board.
  3. To grill sandwiches:  Butter one the inside of the club roll with the garlic butter and place 2 slices at a time buttered side down onto a hot pan.  Once the bread is toasted flip over and lay down 1-2 slices of cheese on each side of the roll and place half of the meat on the one side and close the sandwich.  Using another pan or grill press, press the sandwich for 1 minute on each side to grill the top and bottom.  Once each side of the bread is grilled to a nice golden brown color close the sandwich and place on the cutting board.  Then repeat step 3 to grill your next sandwich.  Serve sandwiches with warm beef broth for dipping.
