Knife and Cutting Board
⅓CPlant Based Margarine Spreadmelted
6Gluten Free Hot Dog Buns
1-2LbsCold Roast Beefshaved or sliced thinly
1Medium OnionSliced thinly
Salt and Pepperto taste
3CBeef Au Jus
Melt the plant based margarine. In a small bowl mix in the garlic powder and dried parsley. Stir well to combine and make garlic butter. (We find a whisk works really well for this.)
Cover a cookie sheet with aluminium foil. If the hot dog buns are not cut, slice them lengthwise, as if for a hot dog, but cut all the way through the bun. Lay the bun flat cut side up on the cookie sheet.
Using a basting brush or the back of a spoon, brush the cut side of the bun with the garlic butter. Set aside.
Heat the beef au jus in a medium pot over medium heat until it boils and simmers for 5 mins. After simmering for 5 minutes, keep warm.
While the beef au jus is heating, in a medium frying pan warm the olive oil. Add in the thinly sliced onion and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sautee, stirring often until the onions are translucent and starting to brown. This may take up to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
Broil the buns under the oven broiler for 1-3 minutes until lightly toasted. Watch the toasting as it will happen quickly.
Slice the beef really thin. It can be served cold or heated.
To serve cold, layer the beef and the cooked onions on the garlic buttered toasted bun base. Cap with the top bun.
To serve heated, place sliced beef into the au jus before it is reduced to simmering. Simmer the beef au jus with the beef for 5-8 mins or until the beef is heated through. Remove the warmed beef front he aus jus and layer on the garlic buttered toasted bun base. Top with sauteed onions and the top bun.
Cut the sandwich in half. Measure out ½ C of au jus into a heat safe bowl for dipping the beef dip into to eat.
Serve with a side like fries, a salad, or fresh cut veggies.
For best flavour make the sandwiches right before serving as the bread will still be warm and the onions, as well. This is the perfect way to use up a leftover beef roast. The easiest way to get really thin slices is to cut the meat with a properly sharpened knife with chilled meat. The cold, but not frozen meat will hold together easier to allow for thin cuts. To get ultra thin cut across the grain of the roast.For a Gluten and Dairy Free Au Jus Recipe from Beef Broth check our our recipe.
