French Dip Sandwich with roast beef

I decided that I was going to mix up the Grilled Roast Beef Sandwich and have a French Dip sandwich.  I was planning on making homemade rolls until I realized that I needed eggs for my homemade roll recipe and knew that there were none in the fridge!  UGH!  Lucky me that I had two hot dog ones that I had made in the freezer.  I was going to make a dipping sauce but I was out with my son all day long so that wasn't in the cards either.  I used the frozen french dip sauce from the French Dip Sloppy Joe.  If you want to try out that recipe, click here.  Another great lesson that dinner can be great with things that you have around the house and very little effort!

I wasn't really sure what I was doing and didn't have time to look on the internet so I decided to just make it up.  I heated the sauce on the stove top.

Then, I added the roast beef to the pan and stirred it around.

I microwaved the rolls to thaw them and heat them up at the same time...dual purpose and really glad to have the microwave.  I cut open the roll and put the provolone cheese on it and it started to melt a little.  If you don't have the cheese, you can certainly leave it off but I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out and everything is better with a little cheese right?

I added the meat from the pan and it did the rest of the melting.

It was almost ready to eat and totally stuffed to the top of the roll (partly because I didn't have anymore rolls to make a second helping and partly because we have so much roast beef).  I didn't even use the whole container for the two sandwiches though.

This is a super easy weeknight meal that you can throw on the table with very minimal effort and a little preparation ahead of time.  It is super tasty and great to mix things up a little.  I hope that you try it soon and let me know what you think!
