This French Dip Roll Up is perfect for an easy, low point lunch!
The roll up itself is made up of ready to go store bought ingredients and the au jus is an easy sauce that takes just minutes to make.
I have always loved French Dip sandwiches. It’s one of the things I would order the most when I went out to dinner.
(Important to note – I cut each roll up in half for the purpose of taking the picture and being able to see the inside. One serving is a whole roll up or two of the pieces in the above picture.)
You can have one roll up with au jus (two pieces in the above picture) for 5 points with blue, green and purple.
This is great for a quick fix when I’m craving a French Dip. Of course cooking beef in the slow cooker or Instant Pot would be delicious, but when I’m short on time this works great.
The first thing I did was cut an onion into thin slices. I melted 1 teaspoon of butter in a frying pan then added the onions.
Let the onions cook for about 10 minutes stirring occasionally. While the onions were cooking I started getting my other ingredients ready.
I used Boar’s Head roast beef for these roll ups. The recipe makes 4 roll ups – each has 2 ounces of roast beef.
As far as cheese I lightened it up by using Sargento ultra thin provolone cheese slices. Each roll up had 1 slice of cheese on it.
To make sure I had cheese in every bite I cut the slice of cheese in half then laid out both halves in the center of the tortilla.
Once you have the cheese down you want to add 2 ounces of roast beef to each tortilla.
For the tortilla I used Ole Xtreme high fiber tortillas because they’re only 1 point each.
Once the onions were done cooking I removed about 3/4 of them to use for the sandwiches and left the rest for the au jus.
Evenly split the onions among the tortillas then roll them up. Bake them for 10 minutes at 400.
While those are baking I added beef consommé (Cambpell’s), water, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and onion powder to the onions. Turn the heat on medium/low and let that cook while the French Dip Roll Ups bake.
That’s all there is to it! A quick and low point meal ready in under 30 minutes.
Yield: 4 roll ups with au jus (5 points blue, green and purple)
- 4 Ole Xtreme high fiber tortillas
- 8 oz. Boar's Head roast beef
- 4 slices Sargento ultra thin provolone cheese
- 1 yellow onion (cut into thin slices)
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1 cup beef consommé
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Melt the butter in a frying pan then add the onions. Cook for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. When they're done cooking remove 3/4 of the onions from the pan.
Lay out one tortilla. Cut a piece of cheese in half then lay it out in the center of the tortilla. Add 2 ounces of roast beef and some of the onions then roll it up. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas.
Place the roll ups on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Add the beef consommé, water, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder and onion powder to the pan with the onions. Turn heat to medium/low and let it cook while the roll ups bake.
Divide the au jus into four small bowls and serve with the roll ups.
