Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

We cooked this sandwich in a slow cooker. This not only makes the house smell great, it also leaves the meat tender and juicy. Perfect for this sandwich!

  • 21 ounces condensed French Onion Soup 2 cans
  • 10.5 ounces Beef Consomme 1 can
  • 3-4 pounds beef chuck roast
  • 8 sandwich rolls
  • 8 slices provolone cheese


  • Place the roast in a slow cooker. Pour the soup and consomme over the top.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
  • Remove 3 cups of the juice from the slow cooker with a measuring cup or ladle and add to a small sauce pan. Turn heat to medium and bring to a boil. Reduce to a hard simmer and let cook until reduced by half, about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the beef to a pie plate and shred with a fork.
  • Place the sandwich rolls in a 9x13 pan and spoon meat into each roll. Top with provolone cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve immediately with the sauce on the side for dipping.



PLEASE NOTE: All slow cookers are different and some take longer/shorter than others. If your meat is not easily shredding after cooking, keep cooking it! It will get tender and easy to shred if it cooks long enough. If you double this recipe or use a larger roast, you will need to add cooking time as well.
