Reviews for Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches
"I've made this several times -- it is wonderful! The aroma fills the house while it's cooking and it tastes soooo good!"
"Everyone loved it!!! yummy"
"This recipe was very easy and using the slow cooker really sold me on it! I was afraid the meat would be dry but it was very moist and the broth mixture was really good. We added some sliced onions in the mix too for added flavor. Will definitely make again!"
"Loved by all! Easy and great tasting recipe!"
"Everyone loved this. Will make again."
"French dip sandwiches are my favorite so I had high hopes for these. I was very disappointed. I cooked the meat for the minimum amount of time, rubbed with the exact amount of spices and ended up with dried out meat with no flavor. I'm not sure if I will attempt to ever make these again."
"I like to put in some hot Italian peppers. Great recipe and will make again."
"Very good, and very easy to make. It smells delicious while cooking, too. Make sure you toast the buns as directed... I skipped that step and regretted it due to the sandwiches getting soggy. I did use provolone cheese, but it was yummy nonetheless!"
"Very good! What a wonderful smell greeted me when I walked in the door on a cool evening after a long day at work. Maybe I shouldn't admit it, but this was the first time my husband and I had ever eaten Havarti cheese, we loved it with the sandwiches. I added some slow-cooked fresh green beans from our fall garden and some oven fries and we had a weeknight feast! I loved how easy it was to assemble in the crockpot, too."
"Very tender beef with a good flavor. Toast the rolls before putting the beef on, or they will get too wet and fall apart."
