When I was first married, this was my go to menu for whenever we had company.
French Dip Sandwiches
1 Sirloin Tip or Top Sirloin Roast
1 package of dry onion soup mix
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon Kitchen Bouquet
(Method 1): Place roast into a crock pot early in the day (about 10 AM). Mix water and Kitchen Bouquet together and pour over the roast. Sprinkle onion soup over the top. Cover and cook on “high” for 6-8 hours.
(Method 2): Place roast in a roasting pan and follow the directions above for the liquids and the dry soup. Fold a piece of foil in a tent shape and place on top of the roast. Cook in a 300 degree oven set at bake for 2 hours for rare beef, or 2-3 hours for well-done.
Remove roast from cooking pan onto a wooden cutting board and let “rest” for 20 minutes. Prepare a package of Au Jus mix according to package directions. Slice the roast into thin slices and serve on French rolls cut in half. Serve Au Jus in small bowls to dip the sandwich in to.
Serve with a tossed green salad and a fruit salad, and chocolate cake for dessert.
