French Dip Sandwiches

blog 296GI 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

Happy Cooking,
