How to Make FRENCH DIP SANDWICHES--Best in the West or East!


  1. Place 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.
  2. When 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.
  3. This 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.
  4. This recipe makes a good amount of au jus. Save the leftover au jus in a ziplock, freeze it for beef soup later on. Enjoy!
