    Bullscreeker's Note:

    This is a copycat version of a dish served by a local diner in central Pennsylvania. My mom & dad used to always go there specifically to order this meal, until my mom finally nailed the recipe. It has quickly become a family favorite and a regular meal that I have to make for DH... This gravy is very flavorful and especially delicious over shoestring french fries!

      I have a friend who loves open-faced hot roast beef sandwiches from various diners throughout the area. Rather than do yet another carry-out, I looked and found this wonderful recipe that mimics well the type of sandwich served in diners in our area. I used a rump roast and, after 10 hours, it was very tender and yielded over 4 cups broth (I left it fat side up in the crock pot - removed extra fat when it was done cooking). The gravy was good -- however, probably added less than 1 cup flour/water -- and would add even less next time. My friend thought it was excellent (thank you!). I used salt-free bouillon packet -- may try "Better than Bouillon" next time for a bit richer flavor. The crockpot made this really easy (no roasting pan/meat thermometers/etc.) Thanks for posting!

      Excellent recipe....I actually had some leftover roast beef from another meal and used that. I say I probably had a pound. I just simmered the beef in the broth until heated through, then made the gravy per recipe by added a little more water.
