National Grilled Cheese Month is going strong and I have another recipe to share with you, one that is a mouthful in more ways than one, these pot roast grilled cheese french dip sandwiches with spicy miso beef au jus! I came across the idea for these sandwiches on Lady and Pups and I just had to make them! I mean, you really can’t go wrong with tender, slow braised beef all wrapped up in a crispy and buttery grilled sandwich along with plenty of melted cheese and then to dip them into a spicy miso au jus just takes them over the top! Yes, these grilled cheese sandwiches take a bit of effort to make, but they are so worth it! The meat should be browned and then slowly braised until nice and tender but you can make it super easy and just toss everything into a slow cooker for the day and it’s done in time for dinner! The grilled cheese sandwiches themselves are pretty easy to make once the pot roast is done and then you can start dipping them into the spicy gochujang and miso broth! Yum!
