The French dip sandwich is a classic popular dish, I have never tried it before, because I always think it is also a challenge to find “good bread” (part of what makes it so delicious!) realSadly, most of the breads in the grocery store are full of unwanted additives, even if they look like they were made in the store (hint: they just bake the pre-made dough in the store and not actually make it) there) .

But thanks to Local bakery In South Charlotte, he easily agreed to my special order for whole wheat French baguettes, and we must enjoy this super simple and super delicious meal! Hey, never ask. 🙂

The best part is that I bought two baguettes for this meal and two extra for our refrigerator! The bread freezes well, and when we first cut out processed food, one thing I learned was to consider buying an extra refrigerator so that you can work hard to find or make good things (ie, locally grown meat at the farmers’ market, from scratch Start with bread, homemade soup, etc.).This makes it easier to eat real food, you can be in my Big freezer cleaning postal!

Two whole wheat baguettes on the counter.

No matter what bread you use, I hope you finally try these slow-cooked French dip sandwiches, because I don’t think you will regret it!
