Shredded Beef for French Dips (Crock Pot)

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by Sandy in Oklahoma

This is sooo good and easy. The first day we have French Dip sandwiches on crusty rolls, dipped in the broth. We then use the left over meat for hash or wrapped in flour tortillas. The left over broth gets saved in the freezer for recipes calling for beef broth. This makes a wonderful base recipe to make any type of beef soup. I have used this recipe for chicken also and it turns out delicious.

Made very yummy sandwiches, and then I did freeze the broth to use later.
