Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches


Go throw these ingredients in the crockpot! Right now! This recipe is so easy and seriously so good! I wish I would've made it years ago.

Of course it was a pin from Pinterest that gave me the idea for the sandwiches. When I was back home a couple weekends back Mom and I took a trip to the local grocery store. I always take a look at their meat section when  I'm there because it's good quality meat and sometimes their normal prices are cheaper than other grocery store's sale prices. The recipe for crockpot French dip sandwiches popped in my head as a perfect recipe for Valentine's Day. Something out of the ordinary than what we usually eat and no actual cooking involved the day of. Sounded perfect to me! I scooped up one of their beef roasts at a great price!

Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches
Adapted from See Marie Cook

3-4 lbs beef roast, remove as much fat as possible
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 cups beef stock
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh cracked pepper (or 4 whole peppercorns)
1 t thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder (could also use fresh minced)
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 yellow onion, chopped


1. Add all into a crockpot and set on low. Meat should be barely covered by the stock liquid.
3. Cook on low for 7-8 hours.
4. Shred meat, serve on rolls with broth from pot to dip.

Wednesday evening, I trimmed up the meat really well- no visible fat in my food, ick! Then, threw everything in the slow cooker and put in in the fridge overnight. The next morning I plugged 'er in and left to work. We came home to an amazing smelling house. I was so anxious for Tim to get home we could dig in! These are so flavorful and juicy! You'll love them!
