Slow Cooker French Onion French Dip Sandwiches
The French dip sandwich is a hot beef sandwich consisting of tender thin slices of beef layered a long white French roll that is dipped into a flavorful sauce made from the pan juices.
- 2-1/2 lbs Beef Chuck Steaks
- 1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
- 1/4 tsp Pepper
- 3 Cups Beef Broth
- 1/4 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 Onions
- 2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Bay leaf
- 8 Crusty Rolls
- 8 Slices Provolone Cheese
Place beef in the slow cooker. Salt and pepper the beef. Add broth, worcestershire, onions, garlic powder and bay leaf to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, or until beef is very tender. Remove the beef and place it on a cutting board. Slice or shred the meat.
Place a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl and pour the juice from the slow cooker through the strainer and into the bowl. This juice will be your au jus, dipping sauce. The onions, in the strainer will be used on top of your sandwiches. Discard the bay leaf.
Add meat back into the slow cooker. Salt and pepper to taste. Pile meat on top of rolls and use tongs to place onions on top of meat. Place a slice of cheese on top of the onions. If desired, place the roll with meat and cheese under the broiler so the cheese will melt. Serve sandwiches with a side of the reserved au jus.
