Anyone Have A French Dip Recipe?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a recipe from Allrecipes that my family loved for crockpot french dip sandwiches. It used beer, beef broth and Lipton Onion Soup Mix.

I made it yesterday in the crockpot and subbed w/a bottle of Woodchuck draft cider, turkey broth, onions and Mrs. Dash. It just wasn't the same and the draft cider gave it a wierd taste. Does anyone have any ideas? Or a recipe that they like?

I even made a special batch of bread and made Carleigh hamburger buns so she could have the full effect. I am bummed it didn't turn out right..

I dont have any ideas what to use for the beer besides one of the gluten free ones, and I am having trouble finding them!

But for the beef broth just use a gluten free one, for instance, Swanson, I use them for everything and it comes out great.

For the soup mix, use Lipton onion soup mix, its the only mix that is actually gluten free. Just remember that none of the other mixes by Lipton are gluten free (that I know of)

I am sure someone else will answer to this post too, maybe they know a sub for the beer.

I hope this helps some and your recipe comes out great!!!!

Thanks, Tink.

I have looked at the boxed broths and thought they had MSG in them. It seemed to bother Carleigh. Same w/the Lipton Onion Soup Mix. :(

Wonder what it would do w/some wine?

yum.. some wine in there too.. that would be good. Yeah it seems almost anything comes with msg in it.. anything that is prepackaged that is. I do have a recipe for Onion Soup Mix if you are interested. Just let me know and I will post it for you. MSG is not an ingredient in it.

You got it! Here it is.. it comes from Gluten Free 101 by Carol Fenster

Onion Soup Mix

1/2 cup dried minced onions

1 tbspn sweet rice flour

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp bouillion powder (I just checked my Herb Ox, it doesnt say MSG on it)

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp sugar

1/4 tsp celery seed

1/4 tsp apple pectin powder

Combine ingredients in a screw top jar. Store in dark, dry place. Use in same proportions as commercial onion soup mixes. Makes about 1/3 cup.

I hope this helps and you can get your french dip. Let me know I would love to try it!

Oh, THANK YOU! That sounds great! Now to find Herb Ox and apple pectin powder. Do you get it at the HFS? I'm determined to make this work again and will definitely let you know.

The Herb Ox I get in the soup section in my regular supermarket and it is gluten free for sure.

The apple pectin I would look in any supermarket too where canning goods are sold, it sounds like something I would use with canning goods. If not someone must know where to get it! Let me know!

If you don't know it already, there is now a gluten-free beer! Haven't tried it, but it is by Ansheimer Busch, and it is called something like "Red Brick." Now with the Lipton Soup (which is gluten-free) and the beer you ought to be set! :P

So would you now share the recipe?

We had hot roast beef sammys yesterday too...

I took two yellow onions and sliced them really thin. I placed them in the bottom of the crockpot. I poured over 1 qt of Pacific Beef Broth. I added salt and a bay leaf. I cooked it on high for 4 hours. THEN, I added two lbs of fresh roast beef lunch meat (my deli does it without any seasonings for me). Then I let the beef warm thru.

Everyone else had it on buns with provalone and horseradish. I had made sandwich buns out of a gluten-free Pantry French bread loaf. I enjoyed it a lot.

You might want to try "Redbridge" sorghum beer. Produced by Annehueser-Busch. To drink, it's sort of bitter but does have a beer taste that would most likely work well in your recipe.

Thanks for bringing this thread back up. I forgot all about it. I'm going to get some Redbridge and try it again. :D
