Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches

Sorry its been awhile. Life is crazy.  Anyway a few weeks ago it was rainy and cold here and I was really craving French Dip sandwiches.  I’d tried another recipe before and it just didn’t turn out the way I wanted, but I decided to try another one and umm umm good. This one turned out great!!! So here you go.IMG_20160410_144754371_HDR

Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches


  • 3-4 lb. Chuck Roast
  • 1 Onion Soup Mix Packet
  • 1-12 oz. container of Beef Broth
  • 1 envelope Au Jus Mix
  • Garlic Salt, Pepper and onion powder
  • Some Buns or rolls of your choosing
  • Optional Cheese Slices
First I like to start with a thawed roast so I usually take mine out of the freezer the night before and let it thaw in the sink.
Next make sure that the roast will fit in your crockpot with allowance for the liquid you will be putting in.
Now let’s get the meat ready!  So all I did was sprinkle the meat with some garlic salt, pepper and onion powder. This is a to taste thing. If you don’t like these spices you can just use some salt and pepper.
Put the meat into the crockpot.IMG_20160410_085644615

Now it’s time to get the liquid ready. In a medium sized bowl combine the onion soup mix, au jus mix and beef broth.  Once all the dry is mixed in pour it over the roast.
Now it’s time to let it cook. Go about your day and don’t worry about dinner cuz it will pretty much be ready for you to just assemble and serve.  That’s why I love crockpots.  I can put in dinner in the morning and not have to worry about it until it’s time to eat.  No stressing about what to make or getting it done on time.
Depending on when you want your meat done cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 5-7 hours.  After this it’s time to cut the meat and place it back into the juice.  I like to slice my meat as thin as I can get it so I use a very sharp knife.

After this it’s time to get your buns in the oven.  Preheat the broiler then slice your buns in half and butter each one lightly.  Arrange the buns on a large baking sheet with the buttered part up. Then toast in the broiler for about 1 min. (Don’t let them burn just get nice an browned)IMG_20160410_144624859
(As a side note if you like cheese on yours now is the time to add it before it goes into the broiler. Put a slice on and then broil the buns. I do tops on one pan and bottoms on another so you don’t burn the bottoms.  I place the cheese on the tops and broil for about 2 minutes or just until the cheese is melted.)

Once the buns are done it’s game time!! layer the meat on top of the bottom bun and then cover with the top. Ladel some of the juice into a dish for dipping and enjoy!!!IMG_20160410_144524949
That’s it you’re done! It is seriously delicious and sooo filling!!!
