Dinner, lunch, or a great appetizer for Football season. This French Dip Crescents & Simple Au Jus Recipe is a winner every time!
ESPN, Sports Center, Fox Sports, you name it, it is on my TV practically 24/7 while my hubby is home. It is that time of year when sports is in the center of our lives. As long as FSU is doing well, we are all happy! LOL In the meantime, I love to make tons of snacks on the weekend instead of big meals. These keep everyone happy as they pop in and out of the kitchen during the day. I have been looking for new, easy, creative recipes to try and this is a winner!
You have to try this super easy French Dip Crescents! Every recipe I found for the Au Jus was so complicated, and it didn’t need to be. I have also included a straightforward au jus recipe.
All you need is a roll of crescent dough, some roast beef from the deli, and a package of provolone cheese. Yep…..that’s it. Open the crescent rolls and place a slice or 2 of roast beef and a piece of cheese on top. I cut my cheese in half since it was a little big.
Then get to rolling. Roll these crescents up and place them seam down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 375 for about 13 minutes or until golden brown.
While they are cooking, place a can of beef broth in a small saucepan. Whisk in a dash of pepper and a pinch of garlic. Yep, that exact. LOL, Sorry, that is how I cook most days….a pinch of this, a sprinkle of that. Then whisk in a tsp of cornstarch. Continue to stir over medium-high heat until it boils. Then Turn the heat off and allow to cool.
By this time the crescents should be done! Place them on a plate with a small bowl of au jus and enjoy!
