Kittencal's Crock Pot French Dip Roast

Kittencal's Crock Pot French Dip Roast created by Virginia Cherry Blo

Use only low sodium soy sauce and beef broth for this, my family likes spicy so I add in some crushed chili flakes also, I have left the onion powder or onion flakes as optional if you are an onion-lover then you might want to include it --- any leftover beef gravy may be frozen to use later for gravies or soup bases

  • Cover and cook on HIGH setting for 2 hours.

    Great recipe... I absolutely love the natural Au Jus sauce, it's amazing. I have always liked the Au Jus packets just fine and I didn't know what I was missing! The beef was great. I would like to know the secret of the tender roast beef in the deli... this was not as tender, but it was still great... I'm craving french dip sandwiches.

    Every time I make this type of roast it comes out very dry, it was tender but dry.

    Threw this in the crock yesterday AM on my way to work (BONUS points for being quick & easy to set up in the morning!) and came home to a yummy-smelling house. Served on Italian rolls.....daughter loved it plain, son added cheese, husband added pepperoncini and everyone was happy. Thanks for sharing!

    My house smelled amazing all day while this was cooking. I shredded my meat cuz it was quickest, but will slice it next time for something diff. The au jus was nice and rich, loved it. Thank you for sharing this with us Kittencal.

    Loved it...made it for my MIL's 85th birthday bash and it was a hit. It was funny, I had printed it and bought the ingredients...then I was talking to my husband asking him if he thought I should put sliced onions in it...we went back and forth and he said.."just follow the recipe" well I did, to a tee and it was fantastic! Thank you Kittencal! (It along with your Ceasar Salad recipe was eaten up in no time and people raved!) Thank you!
