Shredded French-Dip Sandwiches

READY IN: 9hrs 10mins
Recipe by mickie49

This makes some of the best hot sandwiches. Delicious, deeply flavored beef with rich aujus for dipping. Put it together in the morning and come home to a great meal! We like it with a green salad and some chips on the side. I'm not sure where this came from- maybe the food network or some magazine. The left-overs(if there are any) freeze well. Thaw, thicken the aujus and add any remaining meat and serve over rice or noodles.

Reviewed 21Oct09: This was so easy and SO GOOD. I used a rump roast instead of a chuck roast, but otherwise made as directed. Without dipping the sandwich in the Au jus it was just ok, but dipped in it was just awesome. Great supper! Excited to have the leftovers tomorrow! Thanks for posting :) Updated 10Mar10: I made these delicious sandwiches again tonight, and sauteed some mushrooms and onions to top theses off with -- EXCELLENT. It took the sandwiches to the next level. (I did lose some of my toppings when I was dipping the sandwich, but I just fished them out with my fork). :)
