French dip roast beef sandwiches made into oven-baked sliders is a delicious recipe that’s a great and easy way to satisfy hungry kids and adults. And this combination of roast beef, provolone cheese, French’s fried onions tucked in King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls with a beef au jus seasoning is just TOP-NOTCH!
I absolutely love French Dip sandwiches. Each time I visit the Los Angeles area I always make sure to stop at the historic Philippe’s (since 1908) for their signature French dip sandwiches. These sandwiches go hand-in-hand with their au jus dipping sauce. No exceptions!
In this recipe you actually get beef au jus seasoning slathered on top of the sweet rolls, and as your dipping sauce — doubling the savory beef flavor. And it does not disappoint! Feed a hungry crowd with this easy recipe and there won’t be any left!

HOW TO MAKE EASY FRENCH DIP SLIDERS
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
- 2 Tbs unsalted butter softened
- 1 package Hawaiian sweet rolls 12 rolls total
- 1 pound deli roast beef (see Notes)
- 12 slices Sargento provolone cheese separated, 1 package
- 1 and 1/2 Cups French fried onions optional
- 8 Tbs unsalted butter
- 1 packet Au Jus seasoning mix separated
- 1 Tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 Tbs toasted sesame seeds
- 3/4 Tsp dried minced garlic
- 1/2 Tsp onion powder
- 1/2 Tsp seasoned salt, optional (only if you want them a little more salty)
- 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 (see video here).
- 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 Tbs of the au jus seasoning mix, Worcestershire sauce, sesame seeds, dried minced garlic, onion powder, and seasoned salt (optional). Whisk until well combined.
- Top the rolls evenly with this mixture (you don’t need to use all of it, usually about 3/4 is used) 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.
- Rare deli roast beef is chosen for this recipe, because while they’re cooking in the sliders, they become medium-medium+.
