French Dip Sandwiches in the Crock Pot

Laurie Sanders


My friend gave me this recipe which she got from a friend who got it from They are so good and so easy! I don't usually use a four pound roast for us -- just one or two but the same amount of broth. I use the leftover broth as a base for soup or gravy for a pot pie.
