Crock Pot French Dip Au Jus
This recipe can be made with a rump, sirloin or bottom round beef roast. Just look for one that is around three to four pounds and it should work just fine.
Barbara found this recipe in the Pot O’Gold cookbook from our Great-Aunt Gertie’s church out in Imogene, Iowa.
It did not disappoint. Adding the cheese and putting the sandwiches back under the broiler takes them from a good sandwich to a delicious sandwich.
You do have to do a bit of prep work before it is ready for the slow cooker but cooking the onions in the butter and mixing together the seasonings is totally worth it.
Do you need a tool to easily shred beef? Buy a pair or kitchen shears.
Be sure to dip out some of the Au Jus to dip the finished sandwiches in.
