French Dip Sandwiches

I found this recipe in one of our local publications. It's great for an easy weeknight meal, since the meat cooks all day without any attention. —Dianne Joy Richardson, Colorado Springs, Colorado

    So easy and so good! I did use 1 can of consomme and 2 cans of French onion soup in place of the water and it came out wonderfully. My family ate it as sandwiches and I had my meat over a salad - both ways were excellent, Will definitely make again.

    This french dip recipe is a regular at my house, easy to put together and always savory and filling. I add a thin slice of cheddar to the sandwich before serving and will dip the cut side of the bread in the au jus on request. Sometimes I add beef broth or consomme and sometimes a can of french onion soup along with the water for extra flavor. Edit: tonite I'm adding all three & beef better than boullion. Whew! I found this recipe again, so glad I had rated it but forgot to add to my recipe box. Awesome, thanks again!

    First time trying this.The whole family loved it.Broth is salty but I did not have any reduced sodium soy sauce,so I used regular.Sanwiches are good even without the dipping broth. Easy recipe.Put in crock pot and go about your day.
