Easy Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches are my absolute favorite sandwich.  This recipe is simply made from thinly sliced roasted beef straight from the deli section in your grocery store.  It’s then topped with provolone cheese that gets nice and melty on a toasty buttery bun!  This recipe also includes a savory au jus that is perfect for dipping!

I’m not a huge sandwich person.  My husband, on the other, hand could eat them every day.  I really didn’t grow up eating them so they just aren’t my thing.  With the exception is a French Dip Sandwich.  To say I love them is an understatement.  There is just something about it that I can’t get enough of.

Whenever I see them on a restaurant menu, I have a hard time resisting the urge to order it.  My husband just laughs and teases me that I refuse to branch out.  What can I say, it’s one of my comfort foods! I could eat it for any meal.  Well, this or my One Pan Creamy Garlic Chicken! That is a recipe my whole family loves!

The Best French Dip Sandwich

I’ve made them at home with a roast, but it was never the same as the sliced beef you got when ordering out.  It didn’t dawn on me until recently that I could use deli roast beef lunch meat as the real deal.

I’ve figured out the easiest and most delicious at home French Dip and I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you!

Just as great as any restaurant sandwich, these French Dip are super simple to make with deli sliced beef and an easy au jus sauce.  All made in the slow cooker.
