French Dip Sandwiches

Roast Beef
au jus dip
Horseradish sauce

Prepare your au jus dip as directed on package. Then warm your meat in your au jus dip on the stove. Toast your baugette, and then spread some horseradish sauce on it. Then pull your meat(one sandwich at a time-to ensure that your meat stays warm!)out of the au jus and place on your roll. Once all your sandwiches are done, spoon out your au jus dip into bowls, and dip your sandwiches into the au jus as you eat.(Like I need to tell you that!)

Thai Beef Skewers

1 pound top sirloin or top round

1/4 c soy sauce
2 TBSP sesame oil
green onions
crushed garlic
2 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp rice vinegar
black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne

Slice meat into thin strips. Combine all marinade ingredients in a small bowl and blend well. Pour marinade over sliced meat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight. Stir occasionally during marinating.

Remove from marinade. Alternately thread uncooked beef onto bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water. Weave skewer in and out of meat to create a serpentine effect. Grill skewers 1-2 minutes per side. Serve immediately.

** We like to put a strip of meat on a lettuce leaf topped with peanut sauce and then roll up to eat with our fingers.

From Frozen: Thaw meat and follow above instructions.
