Slow Cooker French Dips 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. The beef cooks all day in the broth which flavors the soup and the beef gets fork tender. I add pasta and green beans at the end of the cooking time.
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.
Below is my YouTube video of this meal. You can follow me on YouTube, here.
