Slow Cooker French Dip
I don’t think there is a better way to cook a roast then in a slow cooker. Cooking it slow covered in broth and spice until it’s fall apart tender, yum! Roast has always been one of my most favorite meals. My mom used to make it often as our Sunday meal after church. She tossed everything in the slow cooker the night before and turned it on before church. It would cook for hours and then when it came time for our Sunday dinner with family we had the post perfect tall apart tender roast to eat. This Slow Cooker French Dip is cooked the same way and the smell reminds me of those days arriving home to a house that smells amazing!
I wanted this recipe to be really simple. Just like a lot of my other ones I needed a good recipe that would take little work but still tasted amazing. For this Slow Cooker French Dip all you have to worry about is tossing everything in the slow cooker. Once cooked I took mine out of the slow cooker and sliced it so it was ready for the sandwich but added it back to the slow cooker. This way each and every piece can soak up and sit in that flavorful broth. I placed mine on a sub roll and topped with provolone cheese. To get that perfectly melted cheese I place it in the oven to broil. It only takes 20-30 seconds on to melt so don’t leave it in to long. Last I added some more dried oregano to top it all off and it all turned out perfectly.
