Au Jus Recipe
When we’re short on time, we always use an Au Jus packet (we like the one pictured below).
If you want to try making your own, this quick Au Jus recipe from All Recipes is one of our favorites. We usually omit the fat drippings and add a pinch of garlic powder.
4 Simple Ingredients for these French Dip Crescents
Any recipe that only takes a few ingredients is a total win in our book. With just some refrigerated crescent rolls, provolone cheese, roast beef, and au jus mix, this recipe is good to go.
We use deli sliced roast beef in a pinch, but this recipe tastes even better with Sunday dinner pot roast leftovers.
How to make French Dip Crescents
Roll crescents starting from the wide end and ending at the narrow end.
Bake at 375 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes, until crescents are a golden color.
*Baking tip: if you find that your crescents aren’t cooking all the way through, you may need to decrease the temperature to 350 and cook them for a bit longer (around 18-20 minutes).
While the crescents are baking, prepare au jus. Dip freshly baked crescent rolls into au jus.

We love this recipe as is, but it would be good served with a few extra additions, too.
Try adding extra veggies like caramelized onions or sautéed green peppers.
Substitute your favorite cheese (like pepper jack) in place of provolone.
Add a bit of horseradish inside the crescents (or use it to dip). My kids don’t love this option as much, but I think it’s so tasty with that added kick.
