Mustard on French dip? Thu, 12/3/09 10:55 PM (permalink)
Marlene posted this in a different forum:


The way I order and eat my sandwich at Phillipe's:

Order single dip.

Put a THIN smear of mustard, top with coleslaw and enjoy!

Interesting.  I've never put anything on a French dip and I don't think I've ever seen anyone else do it, but we're just a bunch of rubes here in the Midwest.  Does Philippe's have a special mustard tailored to match the sandwich?

    I've never been there but I saw the Man vs Food when he went there and he talked a lot about their house made mustard that he put on his french dip.  It looked pretty good to me.

      They have a scorchingly hot house mustard. Personally, I want to taste the meat and the au jus (in my case, lamb), not the mustard... so I leave it off.

        I would compare Philippe's mustard to Chinese Hot Mustard- I prefer just a little smear on the sandwich so it doesn't overwhelm .

          Just like on Prime Rib I think a Horshraddish mustard or sauce is excellent....Russ

            I was going to call you a whus, wj.  I just tasted some from the fridge, and it was mild.  But now that I think of it, it's a year or more old.  Mustard loses potency pretty quickly.
