I found this recipe in one of our local publications. It's great for an easy winter meal, since the meat cooks all day without any attention.

"This french dip recipe is a regular at my house, easy to put together and always savory and filling. I add a thin slice of cheddar to the sandwich before serving and will dip the cut side of the bread in the au jus on request. Sometimes I add beef broth or consomme and sometimes a can of french onion soup along with the water for extra flavor. Edit: tonite I'm adding all three & beef better than boullion. Whew! I found this recipe again, so glad I had rated it but forgot to add to my recipe box. Awesome, thanks again!"

"First time trying this.The whole family loved it.Broth is salty but I did not have any reduced sodium soy sauce,so I used regular.Sanwiches are good even without the dipping broth. Easy recipe.Put in crock pot and go about your day."
