French Dip Sandwiches - Crock Pot Style

I found this recipe on another blog.... It is PAINFULLY easy and sure to be a crowd pleaser! Also, try adding a can cream of mushroom soup if you prefer a creamy sauce.

What you need is:

a 2 pound bottom round roast
(The weight of my roast differs each time - it makes no difference)
1 packet of onion soup mix
1 can beef broth

1 loaf of unsliced bread
(I have used French, Italian, sourdough.
Use whatever your store carries)

sliced Swiss cheese

That's it! Screams "Easy!!", right?

Spray the crockpot with nonstick spray.
I do this to help with the cleaning process.
Combine the beef broth and the onion soup mix in a crockpot.
Add the roast and
cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

When ready, remove roast from the juices
and shred the meat.

Slice the bread longways horizontally.
Slice again top to bottom into individual sandwiches.

On each sandwich, put a layer of beef,
then a slice of cheese.

Put the top piece of bread on and
wrap each sandwich in aluminum foil.
Put them onto a sheetpan for easier handling.

Heat the sandwiches for 20 to 25 minutes.

Serve with bowls of warm au jus from the crockpot for dipping.
