Slow Cooker Garlic and Beer French Dips are an easy dinner or great game day meal!
French Dip Sandwiches were one of the first recipes that I made in my slow cooker years ago. I have many ways I like to make French dips, but I seem to always go back to adding beer with the beef. What’s great about making the French dip meat in the slow cooker is that the drippings are used for dipping the sandwiches in, that flavorful broth that’s made is call au jus. I like to degrease the drippings before serving, as a chuck roast can have a lot of fat.
Have a great week! I will have more recipes coming soon!
- Slow Cooker - 5 quart or larger
- 4 lbs beef chuck roast
- 1 large white onion. sliced
- 10.5 oz. can French onion soup (do not add water)
- 12 oz. bottle beer (use your favorite)
- 10 garlic cloves
- swiss cheese
- Add the sliced white onion to the bottom of the slow cooker. Add the chuck roast on top.
- Add the garlic cloves on top of the roast. Pour over the French onion soup and beer.
- Cover and cook on low for 10 hours without opening the lid during the cooking time.
- When the cooking time is done, remove the roast on to plate. Shred the meat with 2 forks.
- I like to remove the grease from the drippings in the slow cooker. I do this by laying paper towels over the top and quickly remove. Discard paper towels.
- To serve, I like to toast the buns in the oven under the broiler, then add the meat and cheese and put back in the oven until the cheese melts. Don't forget the sandwiches in the oven, they will burn very quickly under the broiler. Serve the sandwiches with the drippings (au jus) in the slow cooker.
