A fine Marriage
Whenever we celebrate the kids' birthdays, they get to request what food they want to eat at their party. Two favorites are "smoke roasted" tri-tip and French onion soup. We had a revelation while watching a show on The Cooking Channel called Eat Street. A food truck called Creme de la Creme used French onion soup as the dipper for a French dip sandwich. The idea was fantastic! I dragged out our ancient Weber grill and cooked a couple of tri-tips using hickory wood chips for smoke. April made her sought after French onion soup. We sliced the meat thin and piled it on a soft roll that had been placed under the broiler with Swiss cheese. We stole some onions from the soup and added that to the sandwich. A cup of soup on the side for dipping and Voila! A marriage of two recipes. I now pronounce you soup and sandwich.
