French Dip Sliders

When I make a recipe that I have made before, I check this blog for the recipe. I was shocked that I had not put this up on the blog. We both love this dinner.

It is pretty easy to make, and you could do all the prep ahead of time if you make the recipe as it was written. The recipe is from Delish.com. The recipe calls for Roast Beef from the deli department. I have made it like that once. But I like to use Steak Sandwich meat. There is a brand that is sold around here that is called Old Neighbor Beef Shaved Steak. I pick that up and divide the package into 2 portions. Using the seal-o-vac, I have 2 meals.

If you were to use the Roast Beef, you could do the Au Jus sauce, even cook the onions ahead of time and then put everything together at dinner time.

This is my version of the original recipe. It serves 12 people. Obviously, we cut the recipe down quite a bit for just the 2 of us.


5 tbsp. butter, divided

1 large onion, thinly sliced

2 sprigs, plus 1/4 teaspoon of fresh thyme

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

12 slider buns, halved

1 lb. thinly sliced deli roast beef, or

12 slices provolone cheese

1 1/2 c. low-sodium beef broth

1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce


Preheat the oven to 350°. 

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. 

Add onion and thyme sprigs and season with salt and pepper. 

Cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 15 minutes. 

Discard thyme.

Place bottom halves of slider buns on a large baking sheet and top with roast beef, provolone cheese, caramelized onions, and slider bun tops. 

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and brush on top of the buns. 

Sprinkle with coarse salt, and parsley and bake until cheese is melty and sliders are warmed through, 10 to 15 minutes. 

Meanwhile, make the au jus: 

Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter to the same skillet and melt over medium heat. 

Add beef broth, Worcestershire, and thyme, and season with salt and pepper. 

Simmer until slightly reduced, 10 minutes. 

Serve sliders with au jus for dipping.
