Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches


This is another lovely slow cooker recipe that you can start in the morning, and come home to a wonderful aroma. I love this on cool, crisp fall days with colored leaves blowing in the golden sunshine.

Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches


  • 4 pound beef chuck roast
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 bouillon cubes or 4 tsp bouillon granules
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 6 hoagie rolls


  1. Pull out the roast thirty minutes before searing to bring it up in temperature a bit.
  2. Heat the two tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Season both sides of the roast with salt and pepper.
  4. Once the pan is hot sear each side of the roast.
  5. Remove the roast and set aside.
  6. Turn off the heat and deglaze the pan with the half cup of red wine.
  7. Scrape the browned bits up with a wooden spoon.
  8. To a slow cooker; add the roast, onions, garlic, wine reduction, broth, water, soy sauce, and bouillon.
  9. Secure the lid and set the temp to or low for 7-8 hours.
  10. Once cooked, remove the roast and shred with a couple of forks.
  11. Serve the shredded beef and onions on a sliced hoagie.
  12. Spoon some of the au jus in little bowls to dunk the sandwiches.
