French dip


I got a craving last week for French dip subs, which is an odd craving for me. Usually, the type of food I crave is pasta! But this week it was different for some reason, so I added it to our menu. I have made French dip sandwiches in the crockpot before, but wanted to try a new recipe this time around (mainly because I didn’t want to have to buy a case of beer). While the first recipe I tried was good, this one was great! It definitely satisfied my craving for dinner last night, and I’m so glad we’re having leftovers tonight. You should definitely try it the next time you are craving French dip subs!


3 lb. boneless beef chuck roast
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. dried rosemary
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/4 tsp. pepper 
3 cups beef broth
1 bay leaf
1 garlic clove (I used 2) 

Place roast in bottom of slow cooker. Pour in beef broth. Top with seasonings. Cook on low for 8 hours.

Shred beef and place on hoagie rolls. Top with provolone cheese if desired, and serve with extra broth for dipping.
