We eat French Dip Sandwiches A LOT in the Fall and Winter. I usually just buy sliced roast beef at the deli counter and heat it in beef broth that I've seasoned up. Yesterday, I decided I wanted French Dip for dinner... but I wanted a "fancier" version, so I threw a chuck roast in the crock pot with all sorts of goodies!
I used a 3 lb Chuck Roast with 1 can of low sodium beef broth, several cloves of garlic (maybe 6?), a couple of bay leaves, peppercorns, dried oregano and rosemary.
After throwing everything into the crock pot- I decided to add a few pepperonici as well. Cook on low for about 8 hours.
I hollowed out a few slices for French Bread- we like extra room for the meat :) Toast in the oven for a few minutes.
After all the meat was shredded, I put it back in the crock pot to heat through in the broth.
We like a couple of slices of melted cheese on ours- I used Provolone.
Serve with a bowl of the broth for dipping. I also served mine with roasted Broccolette and a few chips. Perfectly delicious- and pretty simple too :)
