Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches
Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches. Tender pot roast cooked low and slow and served on crusty bread with provolone cheese. A super easy make ahead meal!
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 2 1/2 pound chuck roast
- 1/2 onion quartered
- 2 cups low sodium beef broth
- 1 whole bay leaf
- 12 slices provolone cheese
- onion rolls
Add olive oil to a large pot.
Season chuck roast with salt and pepper. Add roast to the pan and sear over high heat until the roast is browned on all sides.
Add the roast to the slow cooker along with the onion, beef broth and bay leaf.
Cover and cook on the low setting for 6-8 hours. (I have found cooking it on high for 4 hours is not enough time for the meat to become tender.)
Remove roast from the slow cooker and slice or use forks and shred.
Strain the onions from the broth (make sure to reserve liquid). Set aside to serve on top of sandwiches if desired.
Skim fat from broth (if any). Set aside.
To assemble the sandwich layer sliced or shredded beef on bread and top with two slices of provolone cheese.
Place sandwiches under the broiler until the cheese is melted.
Serve warm with a side of broth.
