    Made this for work, everyone raved about it and wanted the recipe. I used London Broil that I got on sale. Was very flavorful and tender.

    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!

    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.
