  2. Where do you get/how do you make your Au Jus? I've only been able to get some decent Au Jus when I cook my own beef (from scratch) for French Dip Sandwiches. Thanks!

  3. Never mind, I see now that the Au Jus in the recipe is linked. Please forgive me. :)

  6. I tried this today, & I had to cook them for over 30 minutes for the crescent dough to be done.

    ReplyDelete
  7. did anyone feel like the dough was not done? or too mushy when dipped?

  9. @ Kay & anon - I've never had a problem with undercooked or soggy dough... Was your lunch meat wet?

  10. We made this tonight for dinner and it was yummy. It was our first recipe we tried and blogged about!

  11. We enjoyed making these... fun for my husband and I to work on together, and super yummy! We cheated and used au jus mix from the store, but it was just as good!

  12. I made these the other night for my family. Deeeelicious! I thought there would be leftovers for lunch the next day. Nope! They were gone!

  13. I made these last night and after 25 minutes at 375 the middles were still too gooey to eat. Perhaps another shape would work better?
    My hubby ate it anyway, but I could not. The ends were yummy, though.

  15. I just wanted to let you know, we made this tonight and it was a slam dunk for dinners! I over cooked them a bit because I don't like even remotely undercooked dough, and they were fabulous. My boyfriend even told me that I should take a picture and post them on "that internet stuff you do." Thanks!! I love being a hero!

  16. This is incredible, I mean, I've seen many variations of cresent rolls, but this has to be the end-all-be-all of every one I've ever seen. Thanks for the awesome post, keep 'em comin!

  17. Would there be anything you could use instead of horseradish? Does it make that big of a difference to have no kind of condiment on there? I will be trying these this week without the horseradish.

    ReplyDelete
  18. OMG! Awesome, awesome, awesome.
    Thanks to my neice, Ashley, for showing me this recipe!

  19. My kids, 7 & 6, helped me make these for lunch. They weren't as pretty, but still good! I left out the horseradish for their sake and just added it on mine as I ate. They were good without it, but I prefer that kick. We were in a hurry, so we did an even quicker au jus. Cup of beef broth with onion powder and garlic powder (sorry, no measurements, just eyeballed it). Let that simmer while we made the cresents (about 10 mins), then when we put them in the oven, I made a slurry with about 2 tsp of cornstarch and 1/4 cup more broth, then added to the simmering pot to simmer about 10 mins more. It also helped not to strain onions and garlic out because my strainer is mysteriously MIA. It was still good! Definitely something we will make again!

  20. These were great - i did have to cook them a little longer because I think I overstuffed them a little. But the fam loved it. Husband, visiting relative, and 15 mo old alike.

  21. I absolutely cannot wait to try these! I can't believe I've never thought of this or seen a recipe like it! Thank you. I love your blog recipes and am excited to search around and try more :)

  22. Thanks 4 another g8 recipe!!!! The Au Jus & horseradish sauce hit the spot 4 me. My kids & husband preferred it w/o it.
    Very mouth watering!

  23. I sliced up some mushroom, onion, and bell pepper and tossed in a pan with EVOO to sauté a little and put that inside!!! It gives it a Philly cheese steak twist!!! Mmmm!!

  24. Such a great recipe and soooo yumm...Thank you!

  25. so.. i ask cooks and waiters this all the time... when they say.. "roast beef WITH au jus"... do you know what "AU" means??? it means WITH. SO... when you say "with au jus" you are saying .... "WITH, WITH JUICE". so it would be French Dip Cresents AND easy au jus.

    2. I'm so with you Anonymous. :)

    3. So your way using your logic would mean "French Dip Crescents and easy with juice". Yeah that sounds lots better!

  26. I absolutely loved this! I made it last night, and I kind of followed your au jus recipe. My family absolutely loved it. I am now following you, and I signed up for your e-mails.

  33. Hi,
    I found you through Pinterest. I an addicted pinner but mostly thats it, I dont tend to actually do the items. lol. But I made these and my boyfriend and I loved them. We made the roastbeef and provolone, ham and (different) cheeses and turkey and cheese. We also saved money by buying the meat ends at the deli.

    They were so good that we want to make them for the family for Christmas. Can we put it together the night before and refrigerate them for the next day? Well be having a gathering of 40 so Ill be making a bunch

  34. Those are fantastic! Thanks for sharing!

  35. So Yummy! I baked mine on a pizza stone from Pampered Chef (never cook on anything else), turned the temp down a couple of degrees and I always have my stone in the oven as the oven heats so the stone is hot when I place them on there...they turned out super!!

  36. I made these tonight, my 11 year old daughter told me that it was something she would like to eat often!! My husband thought they were good, nothing special, but good as a different thing to add to the menu.

    I thought they were good, and easy. I think the next time I make these I will stick to a crisp bread just because they get really soggy, really fast in the sauce. THIS AU JUS RECIPE WAS AWESOME!!

    Thank you for sharing :)

  37. I made these for superbowl last year and they were a huge hit, so when I needed a recipe for the party tonight these automatically came to mind. To keep them from getting soggy, I dried off each piece of lunch meat with a paper towel before I used it. And for people who don't like horseradish, I made these with a garlic aioli and it they were delicious.

  38. We LOVED these, but the first time I wasn't very generous with the beef, so tomorrow I will make sure to add several pieces of beef in each roll. THis is now a staple in our home. THANKS!

  39. I just stumbled upon your blog and I'm so glad that I did. I am so in enamored with all of the things that you made with crescent roll dough. April, you're a clever girl!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Mine came out soggy as well. I think next time I may use slices of cheese and put that on before the roast beef to see if that helps. I will cook them a few minutes more, too. The au jus was awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Looks pretty good... But I'm annoyed after reading this. Why do so many corrupt the term for a sauce derived from the meat's cooking? (Reduced or otherwise...) It's not 'au jus', it's simply 'jus'. Come on people, 'au' means 'with'; let's show some wisdom with our skill.
