      Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

      Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwich

      Your slow cooker makes tough cuts of meat - like beef brisket - unbelievably tender. That's why it's the perfect way to make these French dip sandwiches. We tested multiple methods of getting the most flavorful brisket from the slow cooker. This recipe uses beef stock, onion soup mix, Worcestershire sauce and few other ingredients to really bring out the deep, robust flavor of this classic sandwich.

      We prefer piling the brisket high on a hoagie roll and topping with provolone cheese and a few of the cooked onions from the slow cooker crock. A quick trip under the broiler melts the cheese and gives the bread a nice toasty crunch.

      And of course, no French dip is complete without a side of the au jus for dipping. You might need a few extra napkins.
