Crock Pot French Dip!

I absolutely love crock pot recipes. They make life so easy. This one we have already had a couple times. Its a great meal!

What you need:
  • olive oil
  • beef roast (2 1/2-3 lbs.)
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 1 oz pkgs dry onion soup mix
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cans beef broth
  • provolone cheese
  • hoagies

What you do:
  1. Heat 2 T olive oil in large pot on medium high-high heat
  2. Sprinkle all sides of roast with salt and pepper
  3. Sear roast on all sides until each side is browned {this makes it juicier}
  4.  Place roast in crock pot along with the onion soup mix, water, and broth.
  5. Cook on high until it begins to boil (took me around an hour)
  6. Turn to low for 8 hours.(you could skip step 5. I found it helps make the roast more tender though.)
  7. When done take roast out of juices and shred. 
  8. Save juices to use as au jus.
  9. Serve on hoagies with cheese.
If you want to go a step further you could toast the bun and melt the cheese under the broiler. 
Serves 6-8.

It is definitively a meal to impress!
