French Dip Sandwiches au Jus

This is so good.  And so easy.  I love all things that go in the crockpot because that means I have to spend less time in the kitchen and I have more time to spend on the couch with my hubby watching the latest episode of The Office.  My husband loved these sandwiches and they'll definitely be in our dinner menu rotation from now on!  YUM!

French Dip Sandwiches au Jus
recipe from Foodie Bride
  • 3 lb. chuck roast
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 3/4 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp. brown mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • 6-8 sandwich rolls
  • 6-8 slices of provolone or swiss cheese
Slice onion into 1/4-in rounds and place in bottom of crockpot.   Add beef broth, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and garlic to the crockpot.  Salt and pepper both sides of the roast and place on top of the onions.  Cook on low 6 to 7 hours until beef is fall-apart tender.

Transfer the roast to a cutting board and shred using two forks and place in a medium sized bowl.  Remove onions and place in bowl as well.  If you need to, strain the juice into a large “defatter” measuring cup and get rid of the oil that collects on top.

Heat the broiler.  Place the split sandwich rolls on a lined baking sheet and toast for 1 minute or just until the bread begins to brown.   Remove the tops from the pan.  Scoop the beef onto the bottom of the rolls and top with cheese.  Return to the oven just until cheese is melted.  Top with sandwich halves and serve with small bowls of jus.

Yields:  Approx. 6 sandwiches
