French Dip Sandwiches

I love a great french dip sandwich, I mean who doesn't?!?!  Especially one this easy!  I am a HUGE fan of my crock pot and the wonderful things she can create while I am not looking.  One of my favorite treats are these french dip sandwiches.  Easy, cheap, wonderful...

You will need:

  • 3 lb. Roast
  • 1 Can Beef Broth
  • 1 Can French Onion Soup
  • 1 Bottle Dark Beer
  • Rolls
  • Provolone Cheese 

Yes, my roast is frozen.  You can use a frozen roast or a thawed one, they cook the same.  Throw your roast, french onion soup, beef broth, and beer into your crock pot.  Cover and set on low for 6 - 8 hours.  You will want to use a dark beer, one with a good flavor to it to add some depth to the broth.

Once you get home from work (or your 6 - 8 hours is drawing near) open the lid and gently shred the roast.  The meat should almost fall apart on its own.  (If not, let it cook for a little longer)

Next, slice your rolls, top with cheese and pop them into a preheated oven at 350 degrees.   These should cook about 10 - 12 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the bun is toasted.

Top with French Dip meat and serve with a side of the Au Jus (yummy broth from the crock pot).  I also love to throw some french fries on the side topped with some Lawry's Seasoning.

That's it.  Such an easy dinner that makes huge portions and reheats well!

Kristen, we are thinking alike today. On my blog (linked to WhoisLaura) I posted my version of a French Dip sandwich (using leftover brisket in my crock pot!) So funny. The design of you blog is beautiful; I enjoyed my visit.
