  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C).
  2. Warm the au jus sauce in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the roast beef and let it warm up at the same time. While the meat is soaking, place the rolls on a baking sheet with the cut side down. Brush the tops lightly with water and sprinkle with salt and caraway seeds.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until rolls are toasted, about 10 minutes. Serve the sliced beef on the rolls with the au jus and horseradish on the side.

Almost perfect! I worked in a restaurant known for their beef on weck and the trick is to dip the cut rolls in the au jus just a bit before serving so its not so messy.

Between the salt in the au jus and the bun, it was just too salty. I'm sticking with Italian beefs.

Absolutely what i've been looking for. I grew up in Buffalo, this being one of my FAVORITE sandwiches. I didn't realize it was only local until I moved to the west coast. Now I'm dating an Orego...

This takes a French Dip to an entirely new level. I love caraway seeds, so this just hit the spot. The coarse salt adds a texture reminiscent of a giant soft pretzel, although I must admit it...

Closest thing to Kimmelweck rolls without going through the hassle of making them yourself. Try brushing the rolls with melted butter instead of water (I also leave off the caraway seeds). The...

this is a really good, quick convenience recipe!!! I esp. like the part about making the plain kaiser rolls into kimmelweck rolls. My husband and kids enjoyed them. Thanks!

We dip the bottom side of the top roll in au jus and just serve with horseradish. This recipe was just what I needed. My Buffalonian boyfriend was overjoyed :) Thank you.

These is a simply but tasty and hearty recipe! We really enjoyed this dish. My husband is a huge fan of French dips and I loved making it with the deli roast beef.
