Easy Crock-Pot French Dip

Easy Crock-Pot French DipFrench dip sandwiches are one of my all-time favorite dinners and lunches, snacks, you name it. I can still remember the first time my mom served them. Finger food is the best kid food!

This is a tasty recipe that I’ve fallen in love with. We often eat them with my yummy home-made crispy fries. You can easily double the recipe to serve several people.

My advice is to use the actual canned beef broth instead of bullion made. I prefer the difference.

Au Jus mixes come in many brands. I’ve used several and enjoy Pioneer best. It has a smooth taste instead of a bitter one. Of course, that’s just my opinion!
