Today I'm going to show you how to make French Dip sandwiches in your slow cooker! This recipe is highly rated from Allrecipes.com and I've used it on several occasions.
It's perfect for a crowd or for two!
This may just be one of the easiest meals to make and it's so delicious! Not to be sexist, but I consider this to be a very manly sandwich . . . a manwich, if you will. ;-)
Here's what you need:
1 package of rolls (sturdy ones found in your deli hold up the best)
1 package of meat (chuck roast works well--I always trim as much fat as possible)
1 package of sliced cheese (I prefer provolone)
1 can of French Onion soup (I use Progresso, but Campbell's also makes it)
1 bottle of beer (the richer the beer, the better this turns out. I actually prefer a dark beer like Guiness but Budweiser Select is what I had on hand.)
1 can of beef broth (Ok, I admit . . . I forgot about the broth! I didn't have any other than chicken, so I eliminated it all together and just added some water and it turned out fine!)
optional: 1 onion sliced I also add some spices like pepper and garlic powder.You can get really crazy and add 'shrooms and pepper strips in there too!
Throw the meat, soup, beer, broth and onion (if you're using it) in the Crockpot. Let it cook on low for about 7 hours. And voila . . . it's done!
Toast the bun, melt the cheese and throw some meat on the sandwich. If you like, add a side of the cooking juices to use as au jus.
