GI Joe took me to eat dinner when we were dating after a tennis tournament. How romantic! He ordered a French Dip Sandwich. I had no idea what he was eating. I just ordered a hamburger.
When the waitress brought it I thought to myself, ” This is what my Mama called a hot roast beef sandwich.” Au Jus – we won’t even go there!
Here is another quick and easy meal using the crockpot. Very Tasty! It is one of my Southern Living recipes I use regularly. Hope you will, too. This recipe make 12 servings. Half the recipe and you still have leftovers.
French Dip Sandwiches
- 1 4 lb boneless chuck roast
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1 beef bouillon cube in 1/2 cup hot water
- 1 bay leaf
- 6 peppercorns
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- French rolls , split
Place a crockpot liner in the slow cooker. Put roast in. Combine all ingredients except rolls. Add water to cooker until roast is almost covered. Cook on LOW 7 hours. Remove roast, reserving broth: shred roast with a fork. Place roast in rolls and serve with au jus for dipping. Yield 12 servings
