I used leftover prime rib roast and followed recipe exactly. Better than restaurant french dip sandwiches. Wonderful flavor. This one is a keeper.

WOW, this was really good. I used just regualr shaved steak because it was what we had. The flavoring was wonderful....Everyone enjoyed it. I did add 2 TBSP of cornstarch to the broth after I took the meat out to make it a little thicker (we like gravy) very good and will make again

I had a chuck round roast and wanted to make french dips, so I tossed everything except 1/2 the water into the crock pot and it is soooo good! I will turn the crock pot back on tomorrow for extra tender meat, I really didn't want to wait for them, but I know it will be worth it.

I used leftover deli sliced roast beef. I knew we would not eat it cold so I hoped this would help. It was stellar. I wish I had more, in fact I think i have to try it with a beef roast. The au juis had so much flavor and so did the beef. I did add a little beef base to the liquid and we served it with sauted peppers and onions. Yum.

Wonderful way to use leftover beef roast. I had just under 1/2 lb of leftover pot roast, so scaled back the ingredients accordingly. I did add 1/4 tsp of "Better than Bouillon" (beef flavored) to the mixture and some sliced onions. After simmering for an hour I added the beef/onion to the bun and topped with a slice of provolone cheese and put it under the broiler for a min and served the the sauce on the side, yummo!!!

These are so good, I wanted to eat the meat right out of the pan. I cooked a roast the other day just for this recipe, and I am soooooo glad I did. This is amazing, the meat is tender and flavorful from cooking it for the hour. We loved it and will continue to make this for our french dips. I sauteed some peppers and onions to serve on top and had swiss cheese for those who wanted it. I did slice the meat instead of shredding but otherwise followed the recipe. Thank you so much for this awesome recipe.

Very good! I only had shaved deli roast beef. I doubled the au jus, adding "Better than Bouillion", about 3 tsps. to the water and about 1/2 of a thinly sliced onion. After about 30 minutes of simmering, I added the roast beef to the pot. Used toasted sourdough rolls with a few slices of swiss cheese, as that is what BF likes on his French Dips. We will make this often, thanks for posting, Charlotte.

We really enjoyed our French dip sandwiches last night. I followed the recipe exactly except that I added about a teaspoon of beef bouillon granules to the sauce. It turned out great and I'll be making again. Thanks for posting.
