Remember the balsamic roast beef we made the other day? I’ve gotten so many emails and messages from folks that have made it already and absolutely loved it. So, I thought I’d share with you another way besides the balsamic glazed beef stuffed mushrooms to enjoy the leftovers – or you could do like I do and make one just for these Balsamic Roast Beef French Dip Sandwiches.

Talk about the perfect beefy sandwich recipe!

This French dip style sandwich uses the balsamic roast beef straight from the slow cooker without any additional cooking required. I like to remove the roast beef from the slow cooker with a pair of tongs and place into a serving dish. Then, using two forks, pull the roast beef apart with two forks. Since this roast beef is so tender, it easily separates.

Then, pour the gravy from the roast beef into a fat separator to remove as much of the fat that cooked off of the beef while it was cooking as possible. Once you have separated, pour the gravy into individual dipping bowls.

It will have more of an Asian flair than a traditional French dip sandwich since my balsamic roast beef includes a bit of an Asian influence with the red pepper flakes, soy sauce, etc, but my family and guests have always loved that little surprise when they first taste these sandwiches.

Pull out soft sub rolls or hoagie buns  and set up a buffet where family or guests can assemble their own sandwiches, pick up an individual dipping bowl, and dig in.

While we like these sandwiches just like described above, you can also prepare various spreads for guests to use such as a mustard spread, horsey sauce, or even spiced mayo spreads. That along with various cheeses transforms these sandwiches into delicious roast beef sandwiches without the dipping bowls.

When Little Buddy was younger, he definitely preferred to eat his sandwich with cheese and a mustard spread, but later loved the idea of dipping his sandwich. Either way is always a hit when you are entertaining though.

  1. I can’t seem to get the link to the balsamic beef roast page to work. Can you check the link? I’ve tried every place I can find on here, and can’t seem to track it down. 🙁 Thank you!

    1. Hi Kathy!

  2. 5 stars
    I absolutely love this recipe. I’ve only made it twice, but it is fantastic. The first time I prepared it, I used regular deli rolls and it was super yummy. Saved the recipe to make again and the next time I made it like a shredded beef grilled cheese (with swiss) and we dipped them in the gravy and it was amazing. Thank you so much for sharing, this will be going in for regular rotation in our dinner recipes. 🙂
