Here is the final blog post in the Fast Food series. You will love it!
School lunch when I was a kid was amazing. Seriously!
Did you ever trade your hamburger for a congo bar or a cup of chocolate pudding? That was me, trading for the sweets. I loved the scratch made rolls, donuts and desserts. The one main dish I never traded and my favorite lunch day of all time – French Dip. This recipe is that lunch from long ago.
We only eat a roast 3-4 times a year. This recipe is worthy of that rare occasion. It is so easy and reminds me of school lunch French Dip from eons ago.
Consider using this recipe over the holidays to free up your time to spend with family and still have an amazing meal that will leave everyone smiling.
Easy Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches
- 2- 14.5 oz cans Beef Consommé (it’s next to the Beef Broth and other canned soups)
- 2-3 pound roast (beef or pork)
Spray slow cooker with non-stick spray, add roast. Pour consommé over roast and set your crockpot to low for 8-11 hours or high 5-7 hours.
Even if your roast is frozen solid, it will take 10-11 hours to cook on high but if it’s in around 7am it will be ready around 6pm. This is usually my method because I forget to defrost the roast in the fridge the night before.
Once roast is ready to fall apart, remove from slow cooker and save extra juice for dipping! With 2 forks, shred roast and serve meat on buns.
The recipe is from Six Sisters Stuff and here is their cute link:
If you have a smaller family and have plenty of leftovers, remember to use the cupcake liner trick. Freeze in the liners so they are super easy to remove and bag them up for later use.
This is a photo of the leftovers that were getting close to being too old without being eaten. The photo shows French Dip, Taco Soup and Green Chili Chicken with Masa Dumplings. We pull them out when we are in a time crunch and whammo have an excellent meal ready to roll!
