Reviews for Shredded French Dip
"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."
"Loved this recipe!! It was easy to make and great flavors! The meat was tender."
"Awesome! So delicious! This was my first attempt at French Dip - served it at our "Day After Christmas" celebration. I made it according to the recipe, but cooked more beef (about 5 pounds) to serve 14. There was plenty of "au jus" without doubling the other ingredients. Many of my family took seconds, very little leftover. Will definitely make again!"
"I just made this for Christmas dinner for 12 people. It was a big hit. I started with 4 1/2 pounds of meat because I was making it for more than 8-10 people and I wanted plenty. Good thing I did because there was a lot of fat to cut out in the middle of the meat. I had plenty of juice without changing the liquid amounts. Leftovers were great over mashed potatoes. Even hubby ( aka Mr. Picky ) loved this! I will be making this again."
"Wowza! These were phenomenal. I served them up on hard rolls with a slice of swiss cheese. Delicious!"
"Didn't change a thing. Love it!!"
"I am giving this 5 stars because the recipe is so easy and the dipping sauce is absolutely delicious. My family loved it. I have to say I used a chuck roast as directed and cooked it on low for the directed time and it was tender but not as tender as we hoped. We had to mostly cut it because it didn't shred very easily. I will make this again but will probably use a different cut of beef . A fantastic recipe!! :-)"
"GREAT!! So good and so much better than store bought roast beef and package au jus mix! I just add a little cheese after it's on the buns and broil them. Fantastic!"
"This has been one of my "go to" easy meals, since it was first published. I still had kids at home, then, and EVERYONE loves it! Put this in my slow cooker before I left for work yesterday and shredded it, when I got home. We put it on our buns, added slices of cheese (pepper jack, this time) and set it under the broiler until the cheese melted. YUMMY!!!!! It only takes 2-3 minutes prep time--REALLY!! I highly recommend it!!!!ToniGommy of 5 (and pending)"
"DELICIOUS!! easy to prepare and very flavorful. My family absolutely LOVES this recipe!"
"Used a leaner roast. Absoluted tender and delicious."
"I made this because it needed the least amount of preparation and ingredients...I was skeptical, but it was great! The rolls will make a difference though. My kids liked it with shredded Italian cheese melted on it."
"This is absolutely our go-to French Dip recipe! Have made it for years. IF there are leftovers we add sauted mushrooms and barely for a yummy soup."
"This was by far the best French Dip I have ever had! My husband and kids loved it and it was effortless."
"I've made this recipe for years and recently made it again for a family reunion. Everyone absolutely loved it and requested the recipe--this is a go-to dish for sure."
"I have made this recipe over and over again! It is super simple and delicious! The only thing I have modified was to substitute the beef granules with Knorr liquid boullion (about a tablespoon or more) The flavor of this is amazing! I highly recommend for a simple comfort meal with little work."
"This is really GREAT! easy to prepare, smells good all day long, but disappears quickly."
"I have made this recipe for years and it is wonderful! We save the extra liquid and meat to make vegetable beef soup in the winter or beef and noodles. It's a simple recipe that requires little work but yields great taste! I have found that if I shred or cut the meat about 1/2 hour before serving and put back into the crock it helps to tenderize it more and get more flavor into the meat."
"This was sooooo easy, and there was no need for extra spices or ANY work on this recipe. The kids gobbled it up, eating it in long hoagie rolls. I've been using the leftovers in low-carb wraps. YUM!"
"This is outstanding...I freeze the left over juice to use again, and have done this forever with great success. It is really Yummy"
"Absolutely the BEST!!!!!"
"This is my 11 year old daughter's favorite recipe. I've made it several times ~ usually on cool nights when I know our schedules are very busy. It's easy to throw together on those mornings before going to work!"
