French Dip Sandwiches

As promised, here is your recipe for the French Dip Sandwiches we had last week. The recipe originated from the Baking Bites blog that I discovered through pinterest.  This recipe was ridiculously easy (as are most crock pot recipes) and is going straight to my “keeper” folder on pinterest because the results were so good. I just love easy, delicious recipes

This is all you’ll need:

  • approx 3 1/2 lbs beef chuck roast
  • 16-oz. beef broth (1 1/2 cans)
  • 1 10.5-oz. can condensed French onion soup
  • 6-oz red wine
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4-6 French rolls
  • sliced provolone or pepperjack cheese

Season the roast all over with salt and pepper.

Combine the beef broth, condensed French onion soup, red wine and garlic powder in the slow cooker and place beef roast into liquid.


Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove the roast and shred/slice it and return it to the liquid. Remove any fat you find in your shredding.

Cover one side of each roll with a piece of cheese and the other with shredded beef, place under your broiler for about 3 minutes until the cheese is nice and melted. Don’t forget to spoon the aus jus into ramekins for serving.

As you would know, I totally forgot to take a “finished” pic of the sandwiches… trust me, they were divine!

This pic looks pretty similar to what our final sandwiches looked like.
