The name refers to the style of bread and the practice of dipping it while eating, rather than origins in France, where this food is unknown.


French dip (plural French dips)

  1. An American hot sandwich made with sliced meat (usually roast beef) on a French roll, and served au jus. In its original form the bread is dipped in the jus when the sandwich is made, but more often the jus is served on the side so the sandwich can be dipped as it is being eaten.
