Au Jus-French Culinary Term for “With Juice”
So you have leftover french onion soup huh? I have a quick an easy meal to put these leftovers to use!
½ loaf French Bread
½ stick of unsalted butter
2 slices of gouda (provolone or swiss would work)
1 pound of grass fed beef tips ( this is what I used doesn’t have to be grass fed)
¼ cup of caramelized onions from the french onion soup
½ cup of french onion soup
Chopped Parsley for garnish
Salt and Pepper to taste
Put oven on the high-broiler setting. Get a medium sized skillet smoking hot! Once the skillet is hot add a little olive oil and beef tips and salt and pepper for taste. Cook beef tips for about 7-8 minutes and then set aside. It will still have a little pink in the middle of the beef tips, but if you prefer it to be more well done then cook a little longer.
Slice french bread in half and then cut both in half horizontally. Get a large skillet heated and add butter, then add the slices of bread face down (if you can’t do all it once just do it one at a time). Give it about 3-4 minutes or until it has a golden brown color. Once it is toasted remove from skillet and add beef tips to one side of bread for each po boy. Then add cheese over the beef tips, put on a sheet pan and put in the broiler. Remember stay close to the oven because it won’t take long!
While you’re waiting on the cheese to melt put leftover french onion soup in the microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. By this time the cheese should be perfectly melted and ready. Scoop out onions from soup and add on the other slice of the bread that didn’t go in oven or you can put it on top of the cheese and beef tips. Then take the juice from french onion soup and place on the side for dipping! You can cut it in half or eat it whole , it’s up to you. Enjoy!!!
