Slow Cooker French Dip

Ingredients
  • 3-½ pounds Beef Chuck Roast
  • 10-½ ounces, weight Campbell's Beef Consomme Or Broth
  • 12 ounces, fluid Beer (1 Bottle)
  • 2 cubes Beef Bullion
  • 1-¼ ounce, weight Package Of Onion Soup Mix
Preparation Instructions

Season the chuck roast. I used salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.

Place the chuck roast in a crock pot.

Mix onion soup mix in the beef consomme and pour over the chuck roast.

Pour a bottle of beer over the meat. I find that the darker and richer the beer is, the better the au jus turns out.

Place the bouillon cubes on opposite sides of the meat.

Cover the crock pot and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours.

Take out the meat, slice or shred (it will be falling apart) and place back into the juice until ready to serve.

I suggest using toasted French bread or po-boy loaves. We love this with provolone cheese melted on the toasted bread, and sometimes with caramelized onions and spicy or creole mustard. However you serve this, PLEASE dip into the au jus. It is to die for.

So glad you all liked it! That was very sweet of your hubby thanking you with a big hug ;)

I've been wanting to make this again myself, maybe next weekend.

That's awesome!

I told DH about this recipe, as he was grocery shopping with me and I couldn't remember the type and weight of roast I needed, and he was practically drooling already.

Glad to hear it turned out so well! I'll definitely be making it soon.

Well these were a huge hit! Even I liked them, and I am not a huge beef fan. I'll definitely make them again. I left the recipe as is and they were yummy!
