Well, this was an epic failure. The crescents, although they look perfect on the outside, were not even close to cooked in the middle. We ended up peeling them apart and just eating the meat and some cheese dipped in the au jus. Maybe it was because I put too much cheese in it, but I still don’t think it would have cooked through. This recipe is here http://www.mamalovesfood.com/2012/01/french-dip-crescents-with-easy-au-jus.html?m=1 and I give it props for being super fast and definitely easy. I just must have jacked up the cooking. I also only did a half batch and we had plenty for a third person, maybe a forth.
Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Open a roll of the pillsbury crescent rolls and carefully separate them. Add 2 pieces of roast beef to each one (I used 1 7 oz package and it ended up just about perfect). Top with 1 piece of provolone cheese (I used this sliced and folded it in half, but I used 2 slices and it was too much). Carefully roll each one from the wide end to the skinny end (this was easier than I expected). Bake for about 11-13 minutes.
While those are baking, make the au jus sauce by whisking 1 package of McCormick Au Jus with 3 cups of cold water. Once well combined, heat over medium high heat till boiling. Then reduce heat to low till the rest is done.
While that is heating up, open a can of green beans. Drain the water out, then pour into a small sauce pan. Add 2-3 tbsp butter and heat over medium heat, stiring regularly till butter is melted. Reduce heat to simmer till everything is done.
Once all is ready, serve up the crescents with a small bowl for the au jus and the green beans on the side. I hope your crescents cook better than mine did… enjoy?
