There is nothing quite as cozy as a good French dip sandwich. The thinly sliced meat and soft bread dipped into flavorful au jus (brothy gravy) makes for the most satisfying lunch. This is my own rendition of a French dip, with sweet red peppers and horseradish herb butter for a fresh take on this classic sandwich.
TIP: Take the meat out of the refrigerator 2 hours before cooking to bring it to room temperature.
Paying attention to the internal temperature of the roast will ensure that you don’t overcook it.
Roasting on a rack makes it easier to cook the meat evenly without turning it. It also makes it easy to catch the flavorful drippings for the au jus.
