Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

Slow cooker French dip sandwiches are the perfect easy weeknight dinner, or for serving on any given game day. Tender roast beef and onions served on a hearty bun with a side of au jus for dipping. What could be better?

If you’re a regular here at Pass the Sushi you already know that I have been in full swing Fall mode since early September – which means apples, pumpkins, scarves, sweaters, boots (lots and lots of boots), soup, strews, casseroles, and the return of my favorite kitchen must-have equipment – my ever faithful slow-cooker.

If it wasn’t weird, I’d hug it.

This year I have tons of new soups, stews and slow cooked goodness to scratch off the list this year – and the best part is – I can do these on the nights I work late! (Cheer with me!) I love that. Coming home to a house filled with amazing smells and a boyfriend curled in the fetal position trying to hard not to sneak bites is the best thing in the world. Kick off the shoes, grab a bowl and call it a night.

One to start with is this slow cooker French dip sandwich.

I wanted to see if it were possible to create a French dip as good as my previous attempt this year with half of the work.

It wasn’t as good by any stretch of the imagination. All the work that went into that last one was amazingly worth it. But these little sandwiches are still good – especially for the work you won’t put into them.

I made these last night. I toasted some crusty rolls, melted provolone on the rolls and served with the dipping sauce. The meat was so tender and juicy! We loved it. In the summer I plug my slow cooker in on the back porch and leave it on while I'm at work. The house stays cool and I'm sure my nieghbors appreciate the delicious aromas. You must try this recipe!

I am all about slow cookers during the busy school year. I know just how you feel about hugging it ;-). Great looking sandwiches!!
