Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwich


A French dip sandwich is my go to when I go to Arby’s. It’s good but seriously this recipe isn’t even in the same category. Homemade is always better!  You slow cook it all day and you don’t have to worry, and then when you are ready to eat, there’s deliciousness just waiting for you!




We always use Provolone but a white cheddar would compliment it.



Au Jus simple means “with juice”. Served with a juice obtained from roasting, which is served on the side of food for dipping.






  • 21 ounces condensed French Onion Soup 2 cans
  • 1 cup Beef Stock
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3-4 pounds beef chuck roast
  • 8 sandwich rolls
  • 8 slices provolone cheese



  • Place the roast in a slow cooker. Sprinkle salt on roast. Pour the soup and beef stock over the top.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
  • Remove 3 cups of the juice from the slow cooker with a measuring cup or ladle and add to a small sauce pan. Turn heat to medium and bring to a boil. Reduce to a hard simmer and let cook until reduced by half, about 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the beef to a pie plate and shred with a fork.
  • Place the sandwich rolls in a 9×13 pan and spoon meat into each roll. Top with provolone cheese. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve immediately with the sauce on the side for dipping.



REMEMBER: All slow cooker are not created equal. Some cook faster than others, so keep an eye on your meat.
