"This makes a delicious French dip sandwich, perfect for the working mom! Nobody, not even teetotalers, have been able to detect the presence of beer in this recipe, but it adds a wonderful flavor! French fries make a great side dish, and they are good for dipping, too."

This was bland. And the meat took on the weirdest texture. What could I possibly have done wrong?

This recipe is a hit in my house - hubby & kids just love it. Be sure to use the darkest, most syrupy beer you can find (e.g., Guinness) - it really makes a difference in the richness and overa...

FANTASTIC! MUCH better than any French dip recipe I've tried (including Giselle's French dips, another popular AR recipe). I waited quite a while to try this for 2 reasons. First, I had such a m...
