Prime Rib French Dip with Thyme Au Jus

This sandwich is seriously delicious! It is hearty, meaty, gooey and gets a little soggy when you dip it, which is so perfect with the crispy bread!  Do yourself a favor and use the sliced prime rib available in the deli to make this french dip extra special.  If you can’t get fresh sliced prime rib than just grab roast beef and still make this sandwich!

IMG_2123The line up: sliced prime rib, white cheddar cheese, basil, a fresh ciabatta roll, au jus and fresh thyme.

Optional add ons:  pesto, sriracha aioli, arugula, different cheese, tomato and more!

IMG_2125In a small pan simmer together au jus concentrate with some chicken stock, beef broth or water.  Toss in a sprig of thyme to enhance the flavor.

IMG_2126Cut ciabatta roll in half and smear pesto on each side. Or do pesto on one side and sriracha aioli on the other like I did for my husbands!! Place a few basil leaves on one side.

IMG_2127Pile it up with some aged white cheddar (sliced thin so it will melt)

IMG_2129Assemble the sandwich and toast for a few minutes to melt the cheese if desired.  Dip in au jus and enjoy!

A couple tips:

*Dip meat in warm au jus before piling it onto the bread to enhance the flavor and to warm it up.

*Grill the sandwich for a few minutes if you want melted cheese. Otherwise just serve once assembled.

*Add a sauce (pesto or sriracha aioli like listed above) or your own favorite to moisten the roll a little.

*Trim the sliced prime rib to remove excess fat so your sandwich doesn’t end up too tough

*Go make this sandwich now and ENJOY! It literally takes minutes to assemble!
