Notes

  • Use whichever type of beef roast you have on hand. Or, try a pork roast!
  • Substitute 1 tablespoon minced, dried onions for onion soup mix.
  • I recommend using low sodium soy sauce, if possible.
  • Brown gravy mix could be omitted, if needed.  Or, go ahead and throw the entire 1 ounce package into the crock pot. It won't hurt a thing. 
  • To easily shred the French dip beef, use a kitchen aid mixer to quickly shred it perfectly.  I use the paddle attachment. 
  • Take the extra effort to broil the buttered buns.  It makes the sandwiches amazing!
  • Don't walk away from the broiler.  It doesn't take long for the buns or cheese to burn. 
  • Instead of making French Dip sandwiches, shred the beef and serve over mashed potatoes or rice. 
  • Try serving with Mashed Potato Cakes
