I didnt change a thing and my family loved it. I am going to try sauteed onions and mushrooms and white cheddar cheese today tho. We gave it 5 plus stars besides the taste extremely easy to make.

Way to salty. I made modifications to reduce the sodium. threw together a homemade french soup. Used low sodium beef STOCK, Cut the roast into four or so pieces. Used a smidge of worcestshire, Tabaso with habanero. Fresh sliced onions, green and red pepprs. Just can't stand all of the sodium in the soupsa

Excellent for family get togethers. Recommend adding mozzarella slice as someone mentioned. Sauted onions and green peppers give the sandwich a little wangy twangy flavor also. Your guests are going to love smelling it while it cooks also.

Love this recipe, I also took the left overs and turned it into beef barley soup and it was so good.

I use a chuck roast and I make mashed potatoes and carrots to go with it, rather than making the sandwiches. I thicken the juices with cornstarch and water for gravy. I have been making it since 2001 and my family agrees that it is literally the best meal I make. Thanks so much for the recipe. Everyone else, try it and you won't be disappointed.

I have made this several times and it’s always a hit with my family. I love the fact that it only has a few ingredients. I have omitted the beef granules because I ran out and can’t find them in stores. Don’t really miss them.

Delicious & easy! Served with a slice of provolone cheese on hoagie buns.

I followed the recipe to a t and my wife and I both said it was pretty bland / flavorless, I will not make it again!

This recipe was incredible! It is amazing how a simple chuck roast turned into this shredded french dip masterpiece. We toasted bread and melted some provolone cheese on these sandwiches too.

This is a super easy recipe. The chuck roasts didn't look good at the store, so the meat man suggested a sirloin tip roast. I followed the recipe otherwise. The sauce was delicious, but the meat had no flavor. I think I should have used a roast with some fat. Maybe it will be more flavorful after a day in the fridge.
