|The first time I made this
recipe my family ate it up in minutes with lots of "ooohhh's" and "aaahhh's"
coming from their mouths. This is now one of our family's favorites that I
serve quite often. This French dip sandwich recipe is better than
our local pubs!
|Set up your crock pot
and turn it on. Add the beef broth and the envelope soup mix into
crock pot and stir.
What makes this homemade French Dip
Sandwich so delicious is a combination of the right rolls, cheese, a good
piece of meat, and the dip. You could just place the meat in the crock pot
at this point, but it's so much better if you brown your meat and create
your own dip sauce to add to the crock pot.
|To do so place one
tablespoon of butter and one tablespoon of olive oil in a pan on
medium-high heat. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Place meat in pan
and cook until brown on all sides, about 5-8 minutes on each side.
Once all sides are brown add 3/4 cup of
water. Be careful and stand back when adding the water because steam can
come up in your face. With a fork move the meat around the water scrapping
the brown bits of the bottom of the pan. This forms a
delicious dip for your meal. Once all the scrapings are off the bottom of
the pan, place the meat and the sauce you just created into the crock pot.
|Notice the steam from
adding the water. Also look at the bottom of the pan and see the
gravy juices that have formed...YUMMY!
Cook in crock pot for about six hours. Take
the meat out and break apart with two forks into bit size pieces. Remove any
fat. Place juice in
a bowl for dipping. Place meat in a Kaiser roll, top with cheese and a little bit of
juice. Dip sandwich in bowl for extra juice and ENJOY your homemade
French Dip sandwich!
