Slow Cooker French Dip

I am all about the slow cooker life. It just makes my day run smoothly when I know I don’t have to worry about getting dinner on the table. 

Those dump-and-go meals are heaven sent. And this easy slow cooker French dip falls straight into the category! All you need is about ten minutes in the morning and a quality cut of meat! 

What You Need:

I’ll touch over a few of the less common ingredients called for to help break them down further.

  • Beef Roast- I typically will reach for whatever is on sale that week. However, if I get to pick I reach for a rump or chuck roast.
  • Beef consommé- This can be found in the canned soup aisle.
  • Good quality beer- Darker is better. I find that Guinness really kicks things up a notch.
  • Rolls- Pick a quality bread. While you can opt for the cheaper rolls, a good made bakery style roll is best.

TIP: Toast your rolls using garlic butter to send this recipe over the edge in flavor!

Step by Step Instructions:

How to make a French Dip Sandwich in a slow cooker. This recipe really could not be easier to make.

  1. Toss all of your ingredients in the slow cooker at the beginning of your day.
  2. Let all of the flavors blend together for 8 long hours.
  3. Strain the juices (save those for dipping!), shred the meat, toast the buns, and enjoy!

What kind of meat is used in french dip?

I will typically buy whatever is on sale that week, but the very best cut of meat is a round roast. 

The prep work is minimal and the end result is perfection.

I have to admit, my eight year old especially loves these sandwiches which is a big surprise. He is a “no sauce!” kind of guy so the fact that he actually dips his in the juices is a big deal. He gives these two thumbs way up and suggests you all head to the store to make this delicious meal ASAP!
