Today was a great day to use the crock pot since it is so warm outside and these french dip sandwiches couldn't have been easier to make. I added provolone to our sandwiches for a little something extra. They were delicious!
Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches
Adapted from-Betty Crocker
3-lb beef roast (I used a sirloin tip but a chuck roast will work well too)
1 package (1 oz) onion recipe and dip soup mix (from 2-oz box)
1 can (10 1/2 oz) condensed beef broth
Sliced Provolone Cheese
8 mini baguettes or sandwich buns
Spray 3- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place beef in cooker. In small bowl, mix dry soup mix and broth; pour over beef. Cover; cook on Low heat setting for 8 hours. Skim fat from liquid in cooker. Remove beef from cooker; place on cutting board. Cut beef across grain into thin slices or shred beef. To serve, cut each baguette in half horizontally. Fill baguettes with beef and add two slices of provolone; cut crosswise in half. Serve with broth for dipping. Beef mixture will hold on Low heat setting up to 2 hours; stir occasionally.
