Annz Recipez's Note:
After trying some other French Dip recipes in my crock pot and liking them, but finding them too salty or with not quite enough flavor, I set out to make my own. Zaatar seasoning is a middle eastern seasoning that is strongly scented with thyme and sesame seeds. It adds a lovely flavor to the meat along with the other spices. The garlic mellows as it cooks and permeates the meat beautifully (and makes your house smell heavenly!)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 3 lbs venison roast (or beef roast)
- 1 head garlic, cloves peeled (yes, the entire head!)
- 1 large onion, cut into chunks
- 1 teaspoon za'atar spice mix or 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 1 bay leaf
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules (1 beef seasoning packet from a ramen noodles pack, add more if it needs more beefy flavor)
- 15 peppercorns
- 1Put all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low for 7-9 hours or until the meat is falling-apart tender.
- 2Take the meat out of the liquid and slice thinly.
- 3Toast several hard rolls or hoagie buns. Pile 1/4 lb. of sliced meat on each.
- 4Strain the vegies and spices from the juice and serve the au jus on the side for dipping.
- 5To make a Philly Dip, slice the onions at the beginning. After you've strained them from the juice, sautee them lightly with some green pepper, and pile them on the meat on the bottom of each bun, then top with provolone cheese and bake just until the cheese is melted. Top with the bun tops and serve with au jus.
