My Favorite Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches

I love French Dip sandwiches! I have a number of recipes for French Dips on this blog, but this is my favorite. I love the au jus - it has the perfect flavor to me. I got the recipe from Your Home Based Mom and it's great! I served it on French Rolls with provolone cheese. A side of carrot sticks and mixed berries and it was a great week night meal. I love meals were my slow cooker does most of the work.

My Favorite Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches 

1, 3-4 lb chuck roast
Montreal Steak Seasoning
2 teaspoons oil (I like using avocado oil)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water
4 whole black peppercorns
2 cups beef broth
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
8 French Rolls
8 slices provolone cheese

Sprinkle roast with Montreal Steak Seasoning on both sides. Heat oil in a skillet until hot. Brown roast in the hot oil on both sides. Place browned roast in Crock Pot. In a bowl mix together soy sauce, water, peppercorns, broth, rosemary, thyme, minced onion, and garlic. Pour mixture over the roast. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 5-6 hours, until tender and easy to shred.

Remove roast and shred with 2 forks, discarding fat. Strain remaining juices from the crock pot into saucepan and heat to a simmer (this is the au jus for dipping). Place a slice of provolone on each roll and top with shredded meat. Ladel heated au jus into ramakins or small bowls to dip sandwiches in.
