French Dip Crescent
borrowed from Mamma Loves Food
2 packages crescent rolls, 8 count
1 pound deli roast beef, thinly sliced
8 slices of provolone cheese sliced in 1/2
optional: Horseradish Sauce
optional: Au Jus for dipping (see recipe below)
Unroll crescents onto a large cookie sheet.
Spread a small dab of horseradish on each crescent, then place a slice of roast beef and a 1/2 of cheese on each crescent.
Roll crescents starting from the wide end and ending at the narrow end.
Bake at 375 degrees for 11 to 13 minutes, until crescents are a golden color.
Serve with Au Jus and enjoy!
Easy Au Jus Ingredients:
olive oil, just enough to saute
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic, minced (I use jarred)
1/8 cup white wine
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 1/2 cups beef broth
1 teaspoon flour
Directions for au jus:
Caramelize the onions in a small amount of olive oil. Add garlic and cook for a minute or two more.
Deglaze the pot with white wine, then add Worcestershire sauce and cook for another minute, stirring constantly.
Add beef broth and bring to a light boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.
Strain broth and then return it to pot. Add flour and simmer an additional 5 minutes.
