Are you ready for one of the easiest crockpot recipes ever? These French Dip Sandwiches are way more delicious than the effort you need to put into them! They have the perfect juicy roast beef flavor and leftovers warm up just as good, if not better, than the first night you make them. My husband and I both love these sandwiches! They are perfect for a busy day when you have just a few minutes to toss something into the crockpot in the morning and just a few minutes to get it on the table at dinner time. Crockpot to table will take you 10 minutes, tops.
1 beef roast of your choice (I recommend a chuck roast)
1 can beef broth (I use low sodium organic)
2 & 3/4 cups water
5 beef bouillon cubes
1 pkg dry Italian seasoning
1 package bakery sub rolls
1 package of sliced provolone cheese
Cut your roast into 2 or 3 large chunks. Put all of the ingredients from the roast down through the Italian seasoning into your crockpot. There is no need to dissolve the bouillon cubes before adding them. Just throw them into the liquid in the bottom of the crockpot. Cook on low for 8 hours. If your at home, flip the chunks of beef over once or twice during the cooking time. To serve pull out the beef roast and shred into a bowl. Skim any fat off the top of the au jus juice left in the crockpot. Drizzle the shredded roast beef with a little bit of the au jus juice and stir together.
Cut each sub roll in half lengthwise if not presliced. Lay open and top with 2 slices of provolone cheese. Bake in the oven or toaster oven at 350 until bread is warm and cheese is melted. Fill bun with shredded roast beef and serve with a side of the au jus. The au jus is so, so good! I didn't include it in the photograph because au jus just doesn't photograph well. My husband also likes to add a little horseradish sauce to his sandwich.
