Leftover cooked rump roast
package Lawry’s Au Jus Mix
cups water
French or hoagie rolls



Warm rolls in 300 degree oven.  Add water and au jus to large saucepan and heat to boiling over medium-high heat.  Meanwhile, thinly slice meat.  This is easiest if the meat if cold.  An electric slicer makes it even easier.  Add sliced meat to heated au jus.  Heat until meat is warm.  Slice rolls in half lengthwise.  Put meat in the center and serve with au jus in a cup on the side for dipping.
