Slow Cooking Thursday for June 28
Here's a favorite sandwich recipe at our house. These yummy sandwiches would be good with french fries and coleslaw on the side, or with potato salad and baby carrots for a more summery meal. Hope others enjoy this as much as we have!
FRENCH DIP SANDWICHES
1 3-lb. beef chuck roast, trimmed of fat 2 c. water 1/2 c. soy sauce 1 tsp. dried rosemary 1 tsp. garlic powder 3-4 whole peppercorns 1 tsp. dried thyme 1 bay leaf 8 French rolls, split
Place the roast in a slow cooker; add water, soy sauce, and seasonings. Cover and cook on High for 5 to 6 hours or until beef is tender. Remove the meat from the slow cooker to a bowl; shred the meat with 2 forks. Cover the bowl and keep warm. Strain the broth and skim off as much fat as possible. Pour the broth into small cups for dipping. Serve the beef on the rolls along with a cup of broth for each person.
This great recipe is a big favorite in our family. It came from a Taste of Home magazine some years ago.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
