Sometimes you create a recipe that’s so melt in your mouth – savor every meaty, cheesy bite – delicious that you get giddy just dreaming of when you can consume it again and you know you will be best friends forever and ever. These Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches is one of those recipes. And almost as thrilling as the taste is the fact that it takes all but 5 minutes to prep. We are already planning on making these for New Years because they are the best/easiest dinner ever! If we can wait that long…
This magical slow cooker beef bath of beef consommé, soy sauce and COKE (inspired by my Chipotle Sweet Pulled Pork), showered with dry minced onions, dry thyme, oregano, garlic and onion powder is savory spiced perfection. But that alone is not enough to make these obsessive worthy French Dip Sandwiches. The meat needs to be crazy tender…
To achieve such tenderness, the roast gets cooked low and slow for 4 hours, then sliced thinly while it is mostly cooked but still firm enough to hold together. The roast slices continued to cook for another 2 hours, so the seasoned broth can permeate every centimeter of the thinly sliced meat, leaving you with the most unbelievably tender, flavorful beef.
The beef is so melt in your mouth tender, I guarantee you will be devouring this beef alone, no cheese, no sandwich, just moist, flavor bathed beef. But when you finally find the will power to pull yourself away to pile your rolls or hoagie buns with your can’t=stop-eating-meat, top with provolone cheese and bake until the cheese is ooey gooey and bubbly, you will experience the “Best” French Dip Sandwich.
Dipped in the best au jus sauce (French for “with [its own] juice”) which is simply the leftover slow cooker savory juices/broth.
And then the best part – soft bread, melty cheese, savory crazy tender beef – in-your-mouth.
