A simple yummy way to make French Dip sandwiches. Uses everyday ingredients and makes the meat and the broth for dipping all in one pot.
- 1 (3 -4 lb) lean beef roast
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1 beef bouillon cube
- 1 bay leaf
- 4 peppercorns
- 1 teaspoon rosemary
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- Remove and discard all visible fat from the roast. Place in the crock pot. Combine the soy sauce, bullion and spices; pour over the roast. Cook on low for 10-12 hours. Remove meat from the broth;save broth. Shred the meat with forks. Serve on your choice of rolls with a bowl of broth for dipping.
- We use hoagie rolls but hard rolls are good too.
Very yummy and it makes a good amount of broth! The only thing I did different was to place a chopped onion under the roast in the crock pot because I love the onions in my sandwich. I also used fresh rosemary and thyme from my indoor garden. I served it with French bread and grilled asparagus. I will definitely make this again.
I hate to be the one to give this this a bad rating. It was easy to put together. Even with the extra chopped garlic, onions, and mushrooms I added. It was too salty. Even with lite soy sauce and a cup of water to tone it down. I will be looking for another French dip recipe.
