French Dip Sliders – turn classic French Dip Sandwiches into sliders with melty cheese and a buttery topping. Great for dinner, feeding a crowd, or makes a great appetizer!
One of my favorite sandwiches is a French Dip Sandwich. I love making it at home, and I will almost always order it if it is on a restaurant menu. There is just something about the tender beef and the au jus dipping sauce that I absolutely love!
Traditionally it is made with a big piece of chuck roast that you either have to slow cook all day or make in the Instant Pot. But these sliders use deli roast beef, so they are ready in no time!
I love sliders, because they are perfect for just about any meal. You can serve them for lunch or dinner, they are really great if you have a house full of people. Or you can make them as an appetizer. And really there are so many versions you can make.
These Buffalo Chicken Sliders are great if you like things spicy!
What You’ll Need
- Deli Roast Beef – try to get the rare deli roast beef since the meat cooks in the oven for 30 minutes, it cooks all the way and is still delicious.
- Provolone Cheese
- Slider Buns
- Worcestershire Sauce
- Onion Powder
- Sesame Seeds
- Au Jus Sauce Packet
Plus you really could add even more toppings if you like. I have seen people use French’s Fried Onions, but caramelized onions or sautéed mushrooms have been known to make an appearance in mine, and they are both tasty ideas!
How To Make French Dip Sliders
- Start by cutting your slider buns in half if necessary and arranging the bottom buns in a 13×9 inch baking dish.
- Place the slices of cheese over the buns. Then load it up with the deli roast beef, and top the sandwiches with the top bun.
- In a small bowl melt the butter and mix in the Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic, and sesame seeds. Brush over the top of the buns.
- Cover the pan with foil and bake for about 30 minutes until the cheese is nice and melty.
- Just before serving mix together the au jus packet with water and bring to a boil for 2-3 minutes, whisking constantly.
- Pour the au jus into small bowls and serve with the sliders.
What To Serve With French Dip Sliders
What Kind Of Slider Buns To Use
I like to use a savory or butter flavored slider roll. King’s Hawaiian has a great variety of small buns that work perfectly. I just like to avoid their sweet version for these sandwiches. For this particular day I picked up the Pepperidge Farm Slider Roll near the normal hamburger buns, and they work really well. They are thicker, so they stand up better to the filling and dipping.
The packet of au jus is optional, if you don’t want to use it a can of Beef Consume works really well. You just want something with a little more flavor than plain beef broth. There are lots of recipes for homemade au jus out there, but for how little you need here, I think the packet works really well and gets dinner on the table fast.
And if you want to go all out, you can make my Instant Pot French Dips, and use that meat and sauce for these sliders for one epic meal!
