Although I didn’t have work today, I still had a lot of prepping for next week. I also knew I had no excuse to not make dinner so I found this easy crockpot recipe (that I already had all the ingredients for apart from the rolls.. score) and it was a hit! It mentioned to use a fat strainer for the gravy but I didn’t have one. It was still good but it would have been nicer for it to be a little less oily. Looks like I have an excuse to get another kitchen gadget 🙂 On another note, I think this will make for good leftovers and perhaps even freeze nicely if need be. Yum!
French Dip Sandwiches
What you’ll need:
- 1 3-4 pound boneless roast beef (chuck or round roast)
- 1 cup beef broth
- ½ cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 4 cloves garlic, chopped (I used my beloved garlic press)
- Sub sandwich rolls for serving
What to do:
- Place roast beef into the insert of your slow cooker. In a 2-cup measuring cup, mix together all remaining ingredients. Pour over roast beef and set the timer for your slow cooker for 4 hours on high (or 6-8 hours on low)
- Once roast beef has cooked, remove from slow cooker with tongs into a serving dish. Break apart lightly with two forks and then ladle about ¼ – ½ cup of gravy over roast beef.
- Pile beef into a roll, pour gravy into a single-serve bowl. To eat, dip sandwich in gravy and enjoy!
