French Dip Sandwiches
I love a good french dip sandwich. The delicious flavor of the beef, the amazing au jus. I never would've imagined that one of the best french dip sandwiches I'd ever eat would be the one I'd make at home!
This weekend, I knew that I wanted to try a new recipe. I was on the mission of finding a new crock-pot recipe. Something simple, yet oh-so-good! And I found it!
Easy Slow Cooker French Dip
4 pounds rump roast (I actually only used about 3 1/2)
1 (10.5 oz) can beef broth
1 (10.5 oz) can condensed French onion soup
1 (12 oz) can or bottle beer (darker is better)
6 french rolls
3 Tablespoons (give or take) olive oil
Flour (for dusting roast)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Garlic powder (to taste)
Trim the excess fat from the roast. Pat dry. Dust the roast with the salt, pepper, garlic powder and flour. Cook in pan over medium-high heat in olive oil until browned on all sides.
Once browned, transfer roast to crock pot (slow cooker). Add the beef broth, onion soup and beer. Cook on low setting for 7 hours.
Once cooked, remove from crock pot and slice against the grain (this part is really important in order to get tender meat). Dip the sliced meat in the jus in the crock and serve on split french rolls with cup of au jus on the side. I also love to use creamed horseradish on my sandwiches.
Tickled my funny-bone: My six-year-old asked saw me getting my camera out of the bag this morning and asked me if I was blogging again (although I think he called it bonking). He said, you know, with food? He sort of answered his own question with his comment: it smells like it!
