french dip

 


Overview

Time: 20 minutes
Dishes: medium pot 


Hello, hello Dear Readers!

I offer you another family favorite - and very fast to prepare, too! The only catch is that you need to have the seitan ready. I highly recommend making the Simple Seitan since it is very simple to make and fast. A loaf can be done in 45 to 60 minutes and costs a fraction of commercially available setian.

Good news on the seitan, besides that it is easy and fast, is that it freezes very well, so make it and freeze it for later use. 

The au jus here is just perfect for this sandwich. I recommend making your own Worcestershire sauce because it is easy, fast and much cheaper. It also tastes better, which dominoes into making the dip taste better, too. However, use bottled if you don't have the time or desire.

Enjoy!



Speedy Cooking Tips:

  • Put the broth on to bring to boil first. Reduce to simmer.
  • Add the seasoning as you get them ready; no need to wait to bring to boil first.
  • Slice the seitan as thin as you can while the broth simmers. 
  • Toast the bread while the seitan simmers in the au jus.

  1. French Dip isn't a thing here in Australia, but I have had them when I was in Seattle!

    1. I wonder what you might consider an equivalent of sorts. And the next time you are on this side of the world, I hope you can stop off in San Diego!
