Ever since I was young my favorite hot sandwich has been a french dip sandwich. As a kid I thought dipping my sandwich into that rich au jus as so fun! I still do! Yum. Today’s version is made in the slow cooker and the rosemary and thyme seasoning give it a nice rich flavor.
The best part is – it’s easy. I made this on Sunday. Put it in the crock pot in the morning and by the time we were home from church (4:00) it was ready to eat. All I had to do was shred the meat, toast the buns and melt some cheese on top and we were good to go.
The au jus is made from the remaining broth and juices after you cook the meat. Just strain the liquid to get rid of any pieces of meat or fat that may be in there. I like to serve the slow cooker french dip sandwiches on a toasted bun. I just butter the roll and then toast it in a frying pan. Pile on the meat and then melt some cheese on top under the broiler. I prefer provolone but this time we had pepper jack and it was delicious! Gave it a slight little kick.
I hear there is a big football game coming up and this would be a perfect meal for game day!
