I had a 1.5 lb chuck roast left over in my freezer and wanted to put it to good use, so what better way than making it into a French dip sandwich The French dip sandwich from Arby’s is 540 calories and has 50g carbs ... this recipe is another perfect example that with minimal effort you can make any of your favorite comfort foods fit into your nutrition goals without sacrificing any flavor!
