This is my super easy French Dip Recipe. My sister-in-law, Debi, taught me how to make these and they are a family favorite!
Season a good sized chuck roast with salt and pepper and brown all sides.
Place the browned roast in a Crock-pot on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6. When the roast is tender and falling apart then it is ready to use!
Shred the roast into small pieces and pick out all of the nasty fatty stuff. You might want to let the roast cool for a bit before you shred it.
For the Au Jus, I just use the gravy packets that you can get at any grocery store. I buy them when they are on sale for 3 for $1 :) Make one to two packets of Au Jus. Place the shredded beef in the Au Jus.
Make two additional packets to serve hot with your sandwiches.
Butter hoagie rolls or bread of your choice and place on the griddle until golden brown and crispy.
Place meat inside of the hoagie with or without a slice of mild provolone cheese, dip into steamy Au Jus and enjoy!
