Crockpot French Dip

French Dip3Reason number 876 I love my crockpot!   Love when there are meat sales at Kroger!  So I am staring at an English Roast thinking what I am going to do with you.  I wanted something different the standard rotation.  My husband loves his sandwiches so I thought I would get creative.  My son also will now eat anything as long as he can dip it (gotta love 20 month olds). 


  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 3/4 cup beef broth/stock
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp creole or spicy mustard
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • ~3lb chuck roast-English Roast-whatever you have
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Provolone or Swiss Cheese
  • Yummy fresh rolls-normally I use fresh Hoggie rolls


1)  Slice onion into rings and place on the bottom of the crockpot

2)  Add beef broth, water, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and garlic to the crockpot

3)  Salt and Pepper the roast and put on top of the onions, cook for 6-7 hours until in falls apart.  I was home so I also basted it periodically

4)  Remove the roast and shred

5)  Remove the onions and set in a bowl

6)  Option 1-use a defatter strainer to remove the fat.  Option 2-eat as is and when the juice cools for the next night skim the fat….that is what I do.  I like to put the meat back into some of the juice to keep in nice and juicy for when you put it on the roll.  I take the other half and use it for dipping

7)  Toast your buns(hahah) , place meat on the roll, top with onions and cheese.  I like to put mine back in the oven to melt the cheese if it does  not melt quick enough.  Serve with juice to dip.
