French Dip Sandwiches

When you read the words “French Dip” do you immediately taste the juiciness of the roast beef and know the probability of the au jus dripping down your chin?
Here’s an easy recipe using your slow cooker to answer the call from your taste buds.

French Dip (via the slow cooker)


1 3-pound-ish roast, boneless
2 cans beef broth OR 2/3 box of beef broth
1 teas minced garlic
1/2 chopped onion OR a few dashes of dried, minced onion


Put the roast in the slow cooker (3.5-4 quart).  Add garlic and onions.  Pour broth over meat.  Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours.  After cooking, remove meat and shred.  Return to pot.

Serve on French rolls topped with some provolone or cheddar cheese, melted or briefly broiled.  Make sure to serve a dill pickle and the au jus in a dipping bowl, too.
