Our French Dip Sliders have a secret sauce that sets them apart from the rest. Beefy, cheesy comfort food perfect for parties and game days!



  • 12 slider buns (see note below)
  • 1 pound sliced roast beef
  • 12 slices provolone cheese (can also use mozzarella, sliced or shredded)
  • 2 large yellow onions, sliced
  • 6 tablespoons of butter, divided
  • Store bought au jus for dipping (optional, see note)

For the Butter Sauce:

  • 8 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon powdered gravy
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Melt the 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and toss to coat with the butter. Season with the salt and pepper and cook for 10 minutes until soft and slightly caramelized. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. Add the stick of butter, powdered gravy, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder to a pot over medium heat. Once the butter melts, whisk the sauce together until smooth and remove from the heat.
  4. Place the bottoms of the slider buns on a baking sheet that’s been lined with parchment paper.
  5. Add a couple of slices of the roast beef on each slider bun bottom followed by a slice of provolone cheese.
  6. Next divide the onions onto each slider, placing on top of the cheese. Spoon some of the butter sauce on top of the onions on each slider. (Make sure to whisk the sauce together before spooning onto the sliders.)
  7. Melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter. Place the top buns onto the sliders and brush with the butter. 
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and the sliders buns are browned. If you want the tops of the slider buns to be soft, cover them with aluminum foil before placing into the oven.

Recipe Notes

We like to use slightly larger slider buns for this recipe, but you can use any slider bun that you like. Versions like the Hawaiian roll sliders are a little smaller so you can probably get a few more sliders in total.

You can buy au jus for dipping in the same place that you buy the powdered brown gravy. It’s the same little packet and it makes an excellent dip fro these sliders.
