French Dip Roast Beef for the Crock Pot

READY IN: 7hrs 10mins
Recipe by The Big Cheese

This is one of the best recipes I've come up with for beef roast. The cheapest cuts come out tasting like you slaved over a stove all day long. You can add potatoes and carrots to the recipe if you like, or shred it and serve it as a French Dip sandwich with the au jus juice from the crock pot on the side. If you are watching your sodium, use the lite soy sauce and it will taste just as delicious.

This is fantastic! I did use 1/2 tsp. oregano instead of the rosemary, and only 1/2 tsp. of thyme. Next time, I think I may use fresh garlic, just because I like to use it in my cooking. I sliced an onion and laid it in the pot before the meat, as suggested in other reviews - great idea! I served it with provolone cheese on toasted rolls. I'll be making this one again!
