Instructions on making the tastiest French dip squares:


  • 8 oz. refrigerated crescent-rolls
  • 1/2 lb deli roast beef
  • 1 can low-sodium beef-stock
  • 1/3 can grainy-mustard
  • 9 slices provolone
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme (divided)
  • 1 onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 5 tbsp butter divided
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire-sauce
  • cooking spray
  • kosher-salt
  • freshly ground black pepper


Start by preheating the oven to 350 °F. Then spray a baking sheet using the cooking tray.

 Now place one unrolled can of crescents on prepared baking sheet and pinch together seams. 

After that, it’s time to caramelize the onions. So start by melting 2 tbsp of butter on a large skillet which is over medium heat.

Next, add the onion and 2 sprigs of fresh thyme. Season with salt and pepper and cook until onions soften and change their color slightly to a golden one. Make sure to stir the mixture occasionally.

Then keep cooking until onions are caramelized and tender, which should take approximately 20-25 minutes.

Once you’ve caramelized the onions, it’s time to make the squares. In order to do that, spread a layer of mustard onto a ready crescent, leaving about half an inch clean on the borders.

Then place a layer of roast beef and a layer of provolone. Top the provolone with the caramelized-onions.

Now unroll the remaining tube of crescent rolls and place it on top of caramelized onions layer. Then pinch together the seams to seal.

After that, melt another 2 tbsp of butter and brush it on top of the dough. Finally sprinkle with salt and parsley.

Bake the dough for approximately 40 minutes or until golden. Once the dough has baked, let it cool for about 20 minutes before slicing it into squares.

Then add the Worcestershire sauce, beef stock, and remaining sprigs. Season with salt and pepper and simmer for around 10 minutes.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
