French dip sandwiches are a classic meal that is easy to prepare and tastes great!
My first job after I got married was as a teller at a bank. On Thursday nights, we closed at dinner time and came back for several hours later in the evening to let our customers do their business transactions later at night. During my break I would go to a little Mom and Pop restaurant near the bank for dinner.
My favorite meal was their French dip Au Jus. The meat was so tender and dipping it in the juices made it melt in your mouth. There was always an order of coleslaw on the side which complemented the French dip to a “T”.
This French dip recipe is easy to put together and cooks on low all day in the crock pot to make the meat moist and tender. Its very easy to shred the meat with 2 forks when you are ready for dinner. You may like to add provolone cheese to your sandwich as well for a little extra flavor.
