Bonnie's StoryThis superb recipe for French Dip Sandwiches comes from a dear friend. It is truly the best French Dip sandwich recipe that we have ever tasted. Do not substitute anything in this recipe and you will not be disappointed! It only has four ingredients and you can use the slow cooker to prepare it. How easy is that? Enjoy!
The photo is my own, recipe by pattycake.
4 pound lean chuck roast (don't substitute meat)
can french onion soup (condensed)
can beef broth
12 ounce bottle guiness beer (don't substitute beer)
serve on soft whole wheat sub rolls for dipping in the au jus
1Place the chuck roast in the slow cooker. Add the French onion soup, can of beef broth, and the 12 ounce bottle of Guiness beer. Whatever is in this beer works its magic on the au jus, so don't mess with it. Cook on low in the slow cooker for 4 to 6 hours until very tender.
2When done, remove the meat and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Slice the meat on the diagonal and return to the juices for another 20 minutes or so.
3This is a superb recipe for French dip sandwiches or whatever your creative mind can come up with. I buy whole wheat sub rolls, or soft whole wheat Bolillio rolls (pictured) to serve up the French dip sandwiches, then ladle up a monkey dish of au jus and serve the sandwiches with my oven fries and a green salad. It serves a crowd with minimal work, and leftovers are good the next day. It also freezes well.
