These French dip roast beef sliders is my last recipe of the week for the Super Bowl. Sliders are a staple for such events. Snack type foods make them sharable and easy to grab without taking away from the highly anticipated game.

These sliders are the prefect bite sized version or a French dip sandwich. I toast Sweet Hawaiian with buttery garlic and fill them with savory roast beef and ooey gooey melty cheese. Oh, and don’t forget the juicy au jus sauce for dipping these French dip roast beef sliders in.

This recipe uses the 2-count pack of King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls that you get from the grocery store. However, I stretch the recipe to cover the 16-count pack that I can get from Sam’s Club or Costco.

That’s why in my photo I have some provolone cheese on part of the rolls for the cheese layer. I didn’t have enough mozzarella to cover all my rolls, so I used a slice of provolone. Either cheese works great. Alternatively, for extra cheesy sliders, use both provolone and mozzarella slices!

After you top those rolls with the cheese it’s time to bring on the beef. You will need a pound of thinly sliced deli roast beef to arrange over the rolls.

Spread some mayo over the cut side of the roll tops. Place the roll tops on top of the roast beef. Melt butter and stir in some garlic and parsley for a butter sauce.

Brush the butter mixture over the tops of the Hawaiian rolls. Place covered in a 350-degree oven for 8 minutes.

In the meantime, make up a package of au jus gravy mix according to package directions in a small saucepan. Uncover the sliders after 8 minutes and cook them for another 2 minutes. Then they are ready to serve along with the au jus. It takes about 20 minutes from starting to enjoy these delicious sliders.

I love the sweet flavor and soft touch to these sliders with the Hawaiian rolls. However, feel free to other types of rolls or slider buns.

Yes, you can prepare these sliders in advance. Assemble the sliders, cover them with foil, and refrigerate. Bake when ready to serve, adjusting the baking time as needed.

Can I make the au jus sauce ahead of time?
Absolutely! Prepare the au jus sauce in advance and store it in the refrigerator. Reheat it on the stove or in the microwave before serving.

Can I add onions to the French dip sliders for extra flavor?
Yes, adding caramelized onions or french-fried onions can enhance the flavor of your sliders.
