Hot Beef Sandwiches Au Jus

READY IN: 10hrs 10mins
Recipe by marcella79

This recipe is from a Betty Crocker slow cooker cookbook. It's absolutely the best hot beef sandwich I have ever tasted. I've been making it since 2002 and my friends and family just love it!

This was really great. The only thing I did differently was I took out 3 cups of the fluid about 2 hours prior to the end of cooking time and put it in the fridge, let it cool, skimmed the fat off of the top, and made a thicker gravy out of it in a saucepan (I used xantham gum to thicken it, but it could be thickened with flour/corn starch). Served the meat on sliced bread with mashed potatoes and poured the gravy over the whole thing. I've never seen my fiance eat a meal so fast! Great recipe! Thanks for posting it!
