The French Dip Pastrami Sandwich,.. my favorite! A hot, juicy, cheesy, mushroomy sandwich loaded with tender pastrami in a toasted hoagie roll and all dipped in a fabulous au jus (broth). Yeah… I got hooked on these when my late and very sweet boss,

Pearl, took me to a country club by her home for lunch. These are really just as good as I remembered them. This really is a simple French Dip Pastrami Sandwich, but has country club written all over it! Make these and they’ll totally make you feel like your dining out.

Ingredients for French Dip Pastrami Sandwich:

1 lb sliced pastrami beef deli meat
4 hoagie rolls
1 Tbsp butter, divided
8 slices provolone cheese or 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 lb (about 10-12) mushrooms, thickly sliced
Garlic Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups Beef Broth

How to Assemble the French Dip:

1. Saute Mushrooms until golden and soft. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper to taste. Remove mushrooms from pan and set aside. In the same skillet (without cleaning it), add 1 1/2 cups beef broth, season broth to taste (you want it to be flavorful for use as a dip) then remove from heat – this broth is your “au jus” dipping sauce.

2. Heat a large pan over medium heat. Add a small pat of butter and when butter is done sizzling, Saute the cut side of the rolls just until golden. Divide the pastrami meat evenly among the four sandwiches. Top with cheese and mushrooms.

    Just what I’m looking for. Went shopping today and bought Trader Joe’s brand pastrami. I will buy some cheese, mushrooms and hoagie rolls this evening. I already have the beef stock.

    Back in the 50’s Kings drive in Riverside, Ca (and others) had pastrami sandwich on a roll. that was smothered with a red sauce, kind of like bbq, a little sweet, awesome delicious. I think they called it a French sauce. Trying to figure out recipe. Reply

      Hi Richard, I wish I could help. It sounds awesome but I haven’t it tried it so I wouldn’t be able to re-create. Reply

    In the picture after step two, the bread looks like it’s been toasted, but I don’t see that in any of the steps. Am I missing it somewhere? Thanks. Reply

      Hi Scott, great question! I’m not sure how that step disappeared from the text but you are absolutely correct! I updated the recipe to reflect what my photo shows. Before adding the topping, Heat a large pan over medium heat. Add a small pat of butter and when butter is done sizzling, Saute the cut side of the rolls just until golden. Reply

    Is there a substitute for pastrami? I couldn’t find it anywhere! Including Costco and Winco :/ Reply

      Tanya, a thin sliced lean deli beef should work. I guess different locations carry different items since our Winco and Costco both have pastrami. I hope you’ll love the sandwich 😀. Reply

        Turkey pastrami is good as well Reply

          Is it weird that I haven’t tried turkey pastrami? 🙂 Do you make your own or is it store-bought? Reply
