Crockpot beef dip sandwiches takes my favorite sandwich and makes it so easy that I’m a bit apprehensive. It’s TOO easy. It’s too tempting to feed this to my family when I feel lazy. Which is like, every day.
In all seriousness, this has officially entered the rotation for DAYS WHEN LIFE IS CRAZY. Which again, is every day lately.
FOUR ingredients, folks, and your delicious dinner is done! I even included the buns, which technically are not really an ingredient. So maybe this is a mere three ingredient recipe? It also is better the longer it cooks, so days when you are late it’s totally ok. This meal is waiting for you and your family!
**This is also a two-fer recipe. I have another recipe coming that uses the leftovers from this roast! **
This beauty has the au jus already done for you. It simmers all day in the crockpot, getting better and better as the roast cooks and as time passes by.
Once you get home and that luscious roast has cooked all day, you are going to then slice it up – against the grain, as you can see in my photos- nice and thinly.
Then you simply place it in a bun, pour the already done au jus into a bowl and dip away!
My son the “beef hater” eats these like there is no tomorrow.
These crockpot beef dips officially have the kid seal of approval, which means that there was no arguing about dinner.
Sure, his sister ate the beef plain and the bun plain, but really, she’s just deconstructing it, like all those fancy chefs do. (This is a lie that parents of picky eaters tell themselves. Daily. With a glass of wine to wash the bitter taste of our lies down.)
Now you CAN top these with a nice melty cheese, or some onions as well, but this is just your basic beef dip on a lovely crusty bun. Remember you want a bun that’s slightly crusty so it doesn’t fall apart on you while dipping!
So what do you pile on your beep dips? When I have time, mushrooms, cheese and onion are my favorites!
Love you more than chocolate,
- 4 cups of beef broth
- 1 tbsp onion soup mix
- lb 3-4 beef blade roast 1
- 4-6 crusty buns
Place the beef broth and soup mix into a large crockpot, stir until combined.
Place the beef roast into the liquid.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
Remove the roast from the crockpot and slice into thin slices.
Ladle the remaining liquid into bowls large enough for dipping.
Top with cheese, onions, mushrooms or just eat them plain like we do!
