FAQs & Tips
What type of roast beef works best for this recipe?
You have options! You can use deli-sliced roast beef, leftover beef, or even frozen cooked roast beef in juice. If you choose the frozen option, simply thaw the beef, strain it, and set aside the juice for dipping later.

Roast Beef with Juice – Erie Area Specialty
If you happen to live near Erie, PA, or have something similar in your area, consider using roast beef with juice, often called “Ox Roast.” Yes, it’s not really made from ox, but it’s absolutely delicious. You can find it in the freezer section, already cooked and ready to eat.
If you don’t have access to this specialty roast beef, don’t worry! You can use canned beef consommé and add deli roast beef to achieve that same delectable flavor.
Savory vs. Sweet Hawaiian Rolls
When it comes to the rolls, you have a choice. While sweet rolls are great for pulled pork, for these roast beef French dip sliders, we recommend opting for the savory butter Hawaiian rolls. Their slightly salty flavor perfectly complements the savory roast beef.
Preventing Soggy Rolls
To prevent the Hawaiian rolls from becoming soggy, place a layer of cheese on the rolls before adding the roast beef. This will act as a barrier and prevent the juices from soaking into the rolls. Optionally, you can also spread a thin layer of butter or mayonnaise on the insides of the buns for extra flavor and to seal the juices out.
Add Some Extra Flavor
If you want to elevate the flavor of your sliders, consider adding sautéed bell peppers, onions, and/or mushrooms. This will give your sliders a delicious Philly cheesesteak twist. You can also sprinkle onion powder and/or garlic powder directly onto the roast beef for an extra kick.
For dipping, you can either use a sharable bowl or, ideally, provide individual cups of beef au jus sauce or beef consommé. If you need small cups, you can find them on Amazon.
