From the Test Kitchen

WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH
These sandwiches are inspired by the classic French dip served with a hallmark au jus (translated as "with juice," or sauce). We're using rich caramelized onion, worcestershire sauce, melty cheese, and more to coat toasty baguettes, also filled with prime beef patties. On the side, bone broth and fresh thyme make the perfect sauce to dip as you go.

Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. Cut off and discard the stem of the peppers; remove the cores. Thinly slice lengthwise. In a large bowl, combine the buttermilk, vinegar, half the mayonnaise, and ranch dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Add the sliced cabbage and sliced peppers; stir to thoroughly coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Pick the thyme leaves off the stems. Halve the baguettes lengthwise. In a bowl, combine the cheese, caramelized onions, mustard, remaining mayonnaise, worcestershire sauce, and half the thyme leaves.
