Dipping sauce, hands-off cooking, great leftovers: These are all reasons to love these tasty Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches.
Are you ready for a dinner treat? This recipe is as much about the sauce as the roast beef. This au jus is so richly flavored and delicious, I could just have it with bread and be a happy camper!
I do recommend choosing a fairly lean or easy-to-trim roast for this recipe. When I tried using a pretty marbled chuck roast, the meat and au jus came out way too greasy for my taste. Otherwise, the recipe is pretty foolproof. Lean meat can get a bit dry with slow cooking, but the sauce and cheese (if you are using it) really makes up for that.
