Roast beef au jus

This is my favorite fast dinner. It is ridiculously easy. Pardon the burnt edge on my bread. The kids distracted me… my cooking is unfiltered and real. 😂 I don’t have time for do-overs during hangry.


1 pound roast beef from deli. Medium thickness

crusty rolls. The more firm the better. These were waaaayyy too soft

4 green onions sliced

2 tablespoons butter

1 packet of au jus mix or 2 cups water and 2 beef bouillion cubes

sliced havarti cheese




In a saucepan, cook the green onions in the butter for just 1-2 minutes.

Add in either the beef broth or au jus sauce mix. Reduce to low and simmer about 20-30 minutes.

Place horseradish, mayo, and cheese on rolls. Bake at 425 degrees for about 5-10 minutes until melted.

Now. Dip the beef in the au jus. I really mean dip. 15-20 seconds max. I piece at a time.  I don’t want it cooked well done and rubbery. The medium thickness beef works better than deli thin sliced. My secret is to sacrifice one slice of beef first that will stay in the pot long term and add more flavor to the a jus. So this piece goes in first and then quick dip the rest.

Assemble sandwhich and enjoy!
