Growing up my family owned the restaurant in town for a few years... I didn't get a chance to get into the kitchen, I was busy with school, sports and all the rest but I did get to waitress there a bit to make some extra money and to help out the family... This is where I had my first french dip sandwich and it was delicious! I'm a dipping kind of girl so to have a sauce to dip a sandwich into made my day!! I haven't made my own french dip EVER so when I saw how easy this recipe was I decided the time was now... They turned out delicious and I have to say - the meat was so juicy and tender I didn't really even need the au jus... I took all the ingredients with us when we went camping and popped it in the crock pot before we left for the day. It was great to have supper ready and waiting for us when we got back from all of our adventures!
French Dip Sandwich
(recipe found on pinterest via http://www.thewhickerbasket.blogspot.com)
2-3 lb roast
2 cans beef broth
2 packages lipton onion soup mix
sub rolls, hamburger buns, whatever bread you want
cheese (I used pepperjack cause I like the kick! :)
Place roast in crock pot - I always spray my crock pot for easier clean up... Add broth and soup mix. Cook on low 7-8 hours and shred with a fork. Place beef back in crock pot to soak up all the delicious juices and open up your buns. Place meat and cheese on buns and eat away... You can use the juice left in the crock pot for au jus if you are so inclined!
