Slow Cooker French Dip – juicy tender beef cooked in a savory broth and served on a French roll. Au jus is great for dipping and make this crock pot recipe a staple in any house!
I love a classic French Dip sandwich. If it is on a restaurant menu, it is definitely what I pick. There is just something about the tender beef ,on the crusty bread, that you then get to dip in the au jus that gets me every time. I have made Instant Pot French Dips before, but this is a crock pot version.
The other Crock Pot French Dip I have on the blog uses beef broth, onion soup, and beef consume. Just 3 ingredients (plus beef) and that is it. This version has different spices, soy sauce, and beef stock involved. The broth gets a little more flavor, but the meat stays just as tender and delicious.
This crock pot French Dip is perfect for any night of the week. You put everything in the crock pot in the morning and when you come home, dinner is done! So easy, just 5 minutes of work. Plus the leftovers are amazing! I like to serve Apple Broccoli Salad in the summer or roasted veggies in the winter.
A French dip is a classic, and my family sometimes likes to mix it up. Provolone or Mozzarella cheese are a favorite. If you put the cheese on the bun before you add the meat, it gets all melty from the beef. Then my husband likes to top with banana peppers and Sriracha. You can mix it up and top it any way you like!
Crock pot recipes are some of my favorite. Like Crock Pot Chili is super comforting. But this French dip recipe is right up there. It is a staple when I have a house full of people to feed. It is great because you don’t have to spend time in the kitchen working on dinner, when you have a house full of people. You can just start it, and spend time together during the day.
I am always on the look out for Quick Dinner Ideas, and this is definitely one of them. Anything that only requires me to be in the kitchen for 5 minutes is a win. So add this French Dip sandwich recipe to your menu now!
