The World’s Best French Dip Sandwich

Okay, so I am obsessed with beef. Sam and I call it, “my love affair with beef.” I love to use beef as a main ingredient for so many meals that we love. So I want to share a recipe with you that is an easy weeknight dinner, but also an impressive meal for company.

Today’s recipe comes to us from Taste of Home. And it is…

Shredded French Dip Sandwiches

I must warn you, once you start making these little gems, you’ll want to have them every night.


About this recipe: 

1. You don’t have to buy expensive beef. We created these sandwiches with a Chuck Roast that was $8.00 at Winco Foods, our favorite grocery store. Don’t worry if the meat has a little bit of fat on it. Many people shy away from chuck roast because they are afraid it will be tough and fatty. In your Crockpot the beef will magically turn to melt-in-your mouth delicousness and the fat will render, making it easy to peel away at the end. Also, the fat will add flavor!

2. Follow the recipe exactly, but IF YOU HAVE TIME cook it even longer, perhaps for 8-10 hours. Then the beef will be even more tender.

3. After I shredd the beef at the end, I like to put it back in the jus, and turn up the heat to high for about 30 minutes. Then it will be piping hot when served. 

4. Use french rolls for these sandwiches. Melt some provolone on each roll under your oven’s broiler before adding the beef and serving.


There it is! The perfect weeknight meal. It literally cooks itself while you are at work 🙂
