"The French Dip sandwich was created in 1918 in Los Angeles, California. And here, the perennial favorite sandwich gets a make-over and is served as delicious party sliders. These sliders are a great choice for your tailgating or game-day gathering. Almost everyone in my family prefers these French Dip Sliders with just the Au Jus (for dipping). And I have to admit, they're totally awesome that way. But I like these sliders with the Creamy Horseradish Cream too, for an additional dipping option (which is just a few Tbsp of prepared Horseradish mixed with 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 Tbsp or so of Worcestershire Sauce, and a 1/2 tsp of garlic powder)."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (makes clean-up easier in case any of the cheese melts onto baking sheet).

Step 2

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add onion and 2 thyme sprigs to the butter. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are caramelized (it should take 15 to 25 minutes). Discard thyme sprigs.

Step 3

Fold each slice of roast beef and each cheese slice in half, and then fold it in half again. It should be just about the size to fit on a slider bun.

Step 4

Place bottom half of each slider bun on a large baking sheet (cut side up). Top each bottom bun with a slice of roast beef, a slice of provolone cheese, and a good portion of caramelized onions. Top each slider with a bun top.

Step 5

Melt 2 tablespoons butter, and then brush the melted butter on each bun top. Then sprinkle garlic powder, coarse salt, and parsley on each bun top. (NOTE: If you're sensitive to salt or are on a low-sodium health plan, you can easily skip adding coarse salt to the bun tops in this step.)

Step 6

Place baking sheet in oven, and bake 10 to 15 minutes or until sliders are heated throughout and the cheese is melted and gooey.

Step 7

While sliders are baking, make Au Jus: Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter to the same skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook 1 minute or until fragrant. Add beef broth, Worcestershire, Better than Bouillon, and 1/4 tsp thyme to the skillet. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Simmer 10 minutes or until slightly reduced.

Step 8

Serve sliders immediately with the hot Au Jus, for dipping.
