[ crockpot french dip sandwiches ]

IF YOU are looking for a super-easy, delicious meal, how about french dip sandwiches in the crockpot? This couldn't be easier...

lisa's ultimate french dip sandwiches
This recipe is so easy! I used 2 small roasts since that's all there was available in the grocery store at the time. Pile onto soft buns, and serve with the 'au jus' liquid it cooks in.

what you need:

3 lb beef roast (I used rump roast)
1 packet dry onion soup mix
15 oz can of beef broth or 2 OXO beef cubes dissolved in 15 oz boiling water
1/2 cup water
buns (I used Portugese rolls)

how to:

Put roast into crockpot (remove any strings holding it together). 
In a medium bowl, combine beef broth, onion soup mix and water. Stir until combined. Pour mixture over beef, put lid on crockpot and cook on low for 7-8 hours.

An hour before serving, shred meat with two forks or slice thinly. (If you want your 'au jus' for dipping to be lump-free, strain liquid from crockpot to remove onion bits from the onion soup mix. Then return all liquid to crockpot). Put shredded meat back into crockpot for another hour.

Pile onto rolls. If you like, you can top with some mozzarella cheese slices and put under broiler until cheese melts. Serve with a bit of 'au jus' from the crockpot in a small bowl on the side. Yum!
