Slow Cooker French Dip Soup has the beef and au jus flavors that a French dip would have along with added pasta and veggies.
Have you ever drank the au jus leftover after eating a French dip? I think that broth is so good that I made a soup based around it.
Below is the beef and the soup ingredients. Be sure not to add the pasta or green beans in the all day cooking process.
After 9 hours of cooking I remove the beef and shred it. Then I add cooked cavatappi pasta (big curly noodles) and 2 cans of green beans.
If desired serve this soup topped with parmesan cheese and with crusty bread. This recipe makes a big pot! Great for leftovers or for serving a large crowd.
