Easy French Dip Sliders



  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 package Hawaiian sweet rolls (12 rolls total)
  • 1 pound deli roast beef
  • 12 slices Sargento provolone cheese, separated, 1 package
  • 1 and 1/2 cups French fried onions, optional
  • Seasoning:
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 packet Au Jus seasoning mix, separated
  • 1 Tablespoon Arizona Gunslinger Mild Steak Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Butter the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish with the softened unsalted butter.
  • Without separating the rolls, slice the package of rolls in half.
  • Place the bottom half of the rolls in the baking dish.   Top with the 6 slices of the provolone cheese,  roast beef,  french fried onions,  remaining 6 slices of cheese,  and the other half of the rolls.
  • In a small bowl,  melt the butter in the microwave.   Mix in 1 tablespoon of the au jus seasoning mix, Gunslinger Steak Sauce, Worcestershire sauce,  sesame seeds,  dried minced garlic,  onion powder, and seasoned salt and whisk until well combined.
  • Top the rolls evenly with this mixture  (you don't need to use all of it, we usually use about 3/4ths)  but just make sure all the rolls are entirely coated.   If you have leftover put it in the fridge to top steak or bread at another time.
  • Bake the sliders uncovered until the cheese is gooey and the tops of the rolls are golden brown -- about 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove and cut the sliders with a very sharp knife.
  • While the sliders are baking, take the remaining au jus mixture and place in a small saucepan over medium heat.   Add 2 cups cold water and whisk.   Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer to allow it to slightly thicken.
  • Serve with the sandwiches.
