An easy recipe for Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches! These are filled with tender and flavorful beef, melty cheese and a beefy au jus for dipping!
Servings: 6 -8
Author: Countryside Cravings
Ingredients
  • 1 3-4 pound chuck roast, trimmed of excess fat
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 1 small to medium onion thinly sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon bullion or 4 cubes beef bullion (I like better than bullion brand)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 6-8 french rolls or hoagie buns or something similar
  • 18-24 slices provolone cheese I use 3 slices per sandwich
Instructions
  1. Place roast in bottom of slow cooker. Top with sliced onion and minced garlic. In a small bowl combine the stock, bullion and worcestershire sauce. Pour over beef. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours.
  2. If you choose not to strain the au jus you can just shred the meat right in the slow cooker otherwise remove meat and shred. Strain au jus then return shredded meat and strained au jus to the slow cooker to keep warm.
  3. When ready to assemble the sandwiches give the meat a little squeeze with your hands to drain off some of the liquid (that way the bottom of the sandwich doesn't become to soggy before you're ready to eat it) and place on your buns. Top each sandwich with 3 slices of cheese. Place sandwiches on a baking tray then broil until cheese is melted. Serve with au jus.
Recipe Notes

I recommend only cooking this on low for the 8 hours to achieve really tender beef.
