This no-fuss French Dip Sandwich is oh-so-tasty too! Let it slow cook all day, then shred and enjoy dipped in flavorful au jus! How’s that for an easy meal?
My husband and I devoured these so quickly! I halfed the recipe below for the two of us and we had tasty leftovers for lunch the next day. The au jus really makes these sandwiches. I usually enjoy meat only in small quantities, but give me a sandwich loaded with shredded beef and a side of yummy natural juices for dipping, and I’m all over it!
FRENCH DIP SANDWICHES}
Recipe adapted from Our Best Bites
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 (2 1/2-3 pounds) beef roast
2 tsp. garlic
1 tsp. rosemary
2 (1-ounce) packages dry onion soup mix
2 cups water
2 (14.5 oz.) cans beef broth
1 (16 oz.) package sliced Swiss cheese
Buns, rolls, or hoagies (toasted)
Heat olive oil and garlic in a large pot or skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle all sides of roast with salt and pepper. Carefully place the roast in the pan and sear (brown it) on all sides. This should only take a few minutes. This will seal in the flavor and juices.
Transfer the roast to your slow cooker. Sprinkle onion soup mix over the roast and add water and beef broth. Sprinkle rosemary on top of roast.
Cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours. Depending on the size of your roast, it may cook more quickly. Be sure to check it if you can so it doesn’t get too dry from over cooking.
When the meat shreds easily with a fork, remove meat to a plate and shred the entire roast. Serve on sliced, toasted rolls, hoagies, or buns with a slice of Swiss cheese.
You can slide them under the broiler on your oven to toast the bun and melt the cheese. Serve with the juices from the slow cooker as au jus for dipping.
These were a perfect busy week night meal. I loved that after putting it in the crock pot, I didn’t even have to think about dinner until shortly before serving it.
Yum! I hope you enjoy these sandwiches as much as we did! They’ll be making a regular appearance in our dinner rotation, for sure.
