How do I make a French Dip Foil Packet?
Start by preheating the oven or grill to 350 degrees. If you are using a campfire this is when you’d want to get that going!
While it’s warming up, cut your baguette bread down the middle.
Brush both sides of the bread with butter and garlic mixture then add your cheese and meat. Wrap in foil and place in the oven, grill or over the campfire for 20-25 minutes.
Once done, remove and slice and serve with Aus Jus.
French Dip FAQs!
You have questions, we have answers! These are some of the most common questions people have when it comes to the delicious sandwich!
Got more questions? Leave us a comment and we will do our best to answer them!
Why is it called a French dip?
What kind of bread do you use for a French Dip?
Using a baguette is typically the best kind of bread because of it’s harder outer crust, soft middle and long size. This makes it hold up to the dipping while having an incredibly soft center to bite into as well.
What is the best meat to make a French Dip?
Thinly sliced roast beef is the best meat to use because it’s easy to chew and has great flavor. Having it cut thinly is also a great way to layer it easily on the sandwich as well.
I usually get this in the deli! Also, if you have a choice get it medium rare because you will cook it when you warm the sandwich on the grill or in the oven.
What kind of cheese do you put in a French Dip?
