Johnny's Au Jus French Dip

Bold Flavors for Bold Meals

Bold and Beefy. Johnny’s French Dip Au Jus Concentrate is our original restaurant recipe. Unlike powdered au jus mixes, Johnny’s French Dip Au Jus combines red wine vinegar, tomato paste, onions, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce to tenderize and marinate your meat bringing out its full beef flavor in every bite.

More than just for a great French Dip Au Jus sauce, try with a slow cooked roast, in gravies or in soups and stews.


It's a great dipping sauce or a perfect addition to a gravy.
