Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches


  • 1 (3-4 lb.) beef chuck or rump roast
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 (10.5 oz.) cans beef consommé
  • 2 (10.5 oz.) cans reduced sodium beef broth
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 envelop Au Jus gravy mix
  • 8 sub buns, cut in half
  • 16 slices Provolone cheese

Season the beef roast with salt and pepper.

In your slow cooker, add the beef consommé, beef broth, Worcestershire, onion soup mix and Au Jus gravy mix. Stir until combined. Add the beef. 

Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 5-7 hours.

Remove beef from slow cooker and shred using two forks.

Preheat your broiler.

Arrange the sub buns on a baking sheet. Top each half with the shredded beef and two slices of cheese. Place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is crusty. Remove from oven and place the second half of bread on top of the sandwich.

Meanwhile, skim fat from the juices in the slow cooker. Spoon juices into small bowls. Serve alongside bread as a dipping sauce.
