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.

Wished I could give this recipe 10 stars, as this is an amazing beef dish. The only change I made was to sprinkle onion powder on the beef before adding the other ingredients. Served is as a sandwich, however, I think for next times, I will either serve it with rice, mashed potatoes or even pasta with a side of vegetables & salad.Karla, THANK YOU so much for sharing this wonderful recipe with us all.

Very good. The au jus is not as salty as many are. I used no sodium brothI also used a rump roast as this week chuck roast was insanely expensive. I cut the rump roast into smaller pieces as they tend to be tough.
