Expert Tips

Au jus is a French term for serving meat with its own natural juices. We've added the balsamic vinegar to tenderize the meat and add even more flavor.

Cans of root beer, store-bought potato salad and already-sliced fresh fruit from the grocery store will complete this meal, perfect for a picnic in the park.
