Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches

1 Tablespoon oil

3-4 pound chuck roast

1 onion, cut into wedges

1 14 ounce can low sodium beef broth

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup red wine

1 Tablespoon black peppercorns

1 Tablespoon fresh chopped basil, or 1 teaspoon dried


Hoagie rolls

Heat oil in a large skillet. Brown roast on all sides. Place onion wedges in the bottom of the slow cooker. Add roast. Mix broth, wine, soy sauce, peppercorns and basil in a bowl or large liquid measuring cup and pour over roast. Add enough water to come up the roast’s sides halfway – usually about 1 cup or so. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, depending on slow cooker.

Remove roast from slow cooker and slice thinly or shred. Fill hoagie rolls with meat. Serve with au jus (strained liquid left in the slow cooker) on the side.


About Amy Caldwell

Home Work. It is probably the most important work we do. The time and energy investing in our homes can make a world of difference and a difference in our world. Juggling work, kids, groceries, church, husband, dinner, and cleaning may be a feat worthy of head-lining the circus, but as long as I have coffee, it's all good.
