In the winter there is nothing better than comfort food and this is one of ours. We love French Dip Sandwiches! It's warm and cheesy and dripping with au jus!Here is how I make mine:
1 3-4 lb chuck roast (you can also use pot roast)
2 teaspoons Organic Better Than Buillon Beef Base
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon thyme dried
1 teaspoon rosemary dried
1/2 cup kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
4-6 cups of water
Whole Grain Hoagie Rolls
Optional but very tasty!
1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 med onion sliced
Put the chuck roast in you Crock-Pot. Mix together in a bowl or large measuring cup the beef base, garlic, thyme, rosemary, pepper and soy sauce. Make sure to stir the beef base up good and pour it over the roast. Throw in your bay leaf. Next Pour in your water, you want just enough so that it just covers your roast. Cook in the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours. Take the chuck roast out and shred it. Put it on your roll and cover with provolone cheese. Ladle some of the juice left in the Crock-Pot onto a small bowl and dip that big juicy french dip sandwich in it. The warmth of the meat and au jus will melt the cheese and it will put a big smile on your face. If you want to be really bad you can also serve it with a side of mash potatoes or forget the bread altogether and serve the meat and au jus over the mashed potatoes!
I hope you enjoy it!
