“I have another tried and true French Dip recipe and also use another great one here on 'zaar, but when I went to make it the other day, I was lacking all of the ingredients to make the following was born. Turns out everyone liked it better than either of my previous ones, so I figured I better post it for posterity!”
5hrs 15mins
10 sandwiches

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place roast in 4.5 - 6 quart slow cooker.
  2. Sprinkle with onion soup mix and then pour onion soup and beer over it.
  3. Drop bouillon cubes in different spots into the liquid and sprinkle pepper and salt to taste over all.
  4. Cook on high for 4-5 hours. (I guess you could also cook on low for 8 hours or so, but I haven't tried it!).
  5. Remove meat and slice or shred; return to slow cooker and cover.
  6. Turn to low and let meat soak up the juices until ready to serve.
  7. Our favorite way to serve: open rolls and place a slice of provolone on one side of each; place under broiler until cheese is almost melted. Spoon beef on top with slotted spoon and serve sandwich with a side cup of au jus.
