French Dip Sandwiches

This is definitely one of my comfort food meals, mainly because my mom made these french dips for us when we were kids, and we always loved them. I didn't really even have to lighten them up to get them under my calorie goal, except Mom always buttered the rolls, but they toasted up just fine with a small bit of olive oil.

French Dip Sandwiches

8 oz. deli roast beef, sliced thin
2 deli rolls, cut in half lengthwise
4 tsps. mayonnaise
1 tsp. olive oil
1 packet. au jus gravy mix
240 g. carrots, boiled with salt or steamed

In a nonstick pan on medium heat, drizzle the 1/2 tsp. olive oil evenly over the pan. Place the rolls cut-side down in the pan and let them toast until they're a little darker than golden. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, prepare the au jus according to package directions, then remove from heat and add th roast beef to the au jus for 15-30 seconds, just to warm it through. Remove the roast beef and let drain on paper towells. When rolls are browned, spread a teaspoon of mayonnaise on each side and layer half the meat on each roll. Serve with 1/4 cup. au jus and half the carrots.

Makes two servings, 494.25 calories per serving.

French dip is the first thing i actually remember eating as a kid in a fast food place. I think it was Arby's. Or Denny's. I loved that i got the colorful toothpicks. I've never tried making it. Yours look delicious.
