Easy Peasy French Dip Sammies


I've been craving a French Dip sandwich something fierce lately! 

While this isn't my healthiest recipe, it sure is delicious, quick, and easy! <<< And those are three winners in my book! 

True story: my husband wasn't looking forward to these sandwiches at all, they just aren't his jam. But he devoured two and raved about them all night long. So I'd say that's a: winner winner French dip dinner! ;)
