Wondering what to make for dinner? Check out my family’s favorite crock pot recipes for great dinner ideas!
I love sandwiches, I could eat them for lunch and dinner every day. My family however, does not love sandwiches. In fact I’m fortunate to convince them to eat sandwiches a few times a week for lunch!
My favorite sandwich is the French dip. For years I tried to make a good French dip sandwich and failed, which isn’t surprising considering many of the recipes I tried in my early housewife years were fails. But I never liked the fact that I had to go out to eat to get a food French dip sandwich.
Then a few years ago I found this French dip recipe on AllRecipes.com. After a little tweaking it has quickly become a family favorite. Everyone who has tasted this sandwich asks for the recipe. It takes only 5-10 minutes to prepare and the crock pot does the rest!
Recipe: Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches
- 1 chuck roast (3-4 lbs)
- 3/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 beef bullion cube
- 10 whole black peppercorns
- 1 Tablespoon rosemary
- 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
- Cut all the fat off the roast. (Trust me, even though it seems wrong to cut off all the fat it works out in the end)
- Spray crock pot with nonstick spray and place roast in the crock pot.
- Mix together soy sauce, bullion cube, peppercorns, rosemary, and garlic.
- Pour mixture over the roast.
- Add enough water to the crock pot to cover the roast.
- Set the crock pot on high and cook for 1 hour.
- Turn down the heat to low and cook for an additional 10 hours.
- The roast is done when you can pull it apart easily with a fork.
- Shred the roast with a fork and serve on rolls with your choice of cheese. Use remaining juices in the crock pot for dipping sauce.
Cooking time will vary depending on the crock pot.
