Slow Cooker French Dip Recipe
I was very serious when I said my crockpot is going to be a permanent fixture on my counter this winter. We started yesterday morning with our Easy Crockpot French Toast and now we are ending our Monday with this Slow Cooker French Dip. I guess it’s a slow cooker, French few days around here! Either way, I fed my family delicious meals and really didn’t have to do that much cooking! The only part that I don’t like about using the slow cooker is that I can smell the food cooking all day. It just makes my hungry, and I can’t wait for dinner time. But it does make the house smell good, and my husband always says…..now this is how a house is supposed to smell 🙂
- 4 lb Beef Roast
- 1 tbsp of minced garlic
- 1 small onion, quartered
- 1 tbsp of rosemary
- 3 bay leaves
- 1 cup of soy sauce
- 6 cup of water
- 8 sub rolls
- bell peppers (optional)
- onions (optional)
- cheese (optional)
- Place roast in the slow cooker.
- Place rosemary and bay leaves in a piece of cheesecloth and gather it up and tie with twine/string.
- Add the remaining ingredients and cook on Low for 8 to 10 hours.
- Remove the bay leaves and rosemary packet and discard.
- Remove and shred the beef. It should be very tender, and you should be able to do with with a couple of forks.
- Strain the juices into a bowl to serve as Au Jus.
- Return everything to the crockpot, turn to warm and serve.
- If you like, you can saute onions and peppers and add cheese to the sandwiches.
I like to get a roast that is really lean when I make this Slow Cooker French Dip recipe, but that is just my preference. If you don’t need all eight sandwiches for your meal, then just save the leftovers and enjoy it over the next few days. Don’t have a crockpot that you absolutely LOVE?? This is the one I use all of the time. I like that the lid will lock and I can take it with me!
