SLOW COOKER FRENCH DIP SANDWICHES — Beef roast is cooked until tender, shredded, and served on crusty sub buns with melted cheese and a side of au jus.
This is the time of year when simple slow cooker meals like these Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches are a real lifesaver.
If you’ve ever had multiple holiday concerts at different schools on the same night, you know exactly what I’m talking about!
I made this recipe and it was the bomb! Seriously was in love and will absolutely make it again! Thanks! ~ Laura
Those are the days when it’s so nice to have a home cooked meal ready that can be eaten as everyone comes and goes, which is why I love my slow cooker so much!
And it’s always a good idea to have some easy dinner ideas up your sleeve during the busy holiday season. This is one of our all-time favorite sandwiches, so I make it year-round.
There aren’t a lot of fancy ingredients, but the beef and dipping sauce are so flavorful. And then there’s the melted cheese–you can never go wrong with melted cheese!
I made this last night. My husband said it was Excellent! And my husband is pretty sparing with his praise. So just imagine he said it was OUTSTANDINGLY STUPENDOUS. Because it was! ~ Tobi
Not only is this one of the easiest meals in my repertoire, it’s one of the few meals that everyone in my family raves about. And it gets rave reviews from everyone who tries it too.
I always pour the au jus sauce through a fine mesh strainer before serving it with the sandwiches, but that’s just my personal preference.
This is as good as any French Dip you will get at a restaurant. A really good way to use a chuck roast. ~ Scott
You can totally skip that step if you want to. I just have a thing about floaties in my au jus.
I love easy meals like this one that I know will satisfy the whole family. I hope you love these French Dip Sandwiches as much as we do!
