Reviews for Shredded Beef au Jus
"Delicious and easy."
"Very good... I eliminated the salts and used garlic power and onion powder instead. I also added some sliced onions half way thru the cooking time."
"Made this for dinner the other night, love the taste and it was so easy! Did add a sliced onion to it."
"When I first started cooking I thought "oh no, it's so watery, doesn't look good". A few hours later the house was filled with an amazing aroma and the shredded meat was soooo good! I love how this takes literally 5 minutes to make and is absolutely delicious!"
"I made Chicago-Style Beef Sandwiches last weekend and then this one to compare the two. The flavors were very similar but this one took less prep time. I will use both recipes but this one is definitely better if you're in a hurry because the meat does not get browned first and no veggies to chop. Very tasty!"
"I came across this recipe out of a need to not have to buy a packet of seasoning knowing it must not be to complicated to make my own "french dip" sandwiches. I am pleased with the flavor of this and will definately call it my new standard. I also added sliced onions and used garlic powder and a little salt since i was out of garlic salt. Thanks for publishing this one!!"
"i liked the flavoring in this dish, plus the ease of making. used sandwich rolls instead to make nice french dips."
"It wasn't good or bad. I have better recipes for similar dish."
"Just need to cook long enough to shred. Very good flavor."
"Maybe I should go "punch" the butcher . . . .I followed the directions, cooked it in the slow cooker but no way could I shred it with two forks. Flavor is good, I sliced it so not a total loss, just a disappointment in not having it shredded."
