Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

Slow Cooker Sandwiches are easy to make, taste amazing, and can feed a crowd. The meat is tender and juicy from soaking all the flavors and cooking for so long in a nice mixture of onion soup, beef consommé, herbs, and spices. The sauce is very good for dipping the sandwiches in or even to eat it like soup!

The Crockpot Sandwiches are perfect to make for a quick night dinner or to entertain a company. You add everything to the Slow Cooker and forget about it until ready to serve.

Topped with melted Swiss cheese on fluffy white bread, these Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches are a must-try!

Why You’ll Love This Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches Recipe:

  • Very easy to make with minimal prep work.
  • A hearty and delicious meal that can be served as a weeknight dinner.
  • Perfect party food, with minimal prep work so you can entertain more and cook less.
  • You will have delicious leftovers the next day.

Tips to make the perfect Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches:

  • Use high-quality meat. I recommend grass-fed, organic meat if possible, as it tends to be extra tender, which is perfect in this recipe.
  • You can use a chuck roast or round roast. The chuck roast has more fat, so it will be more tender and juicy. If you prefer less fat, I recommend using round roast beef. The round roast will be a little drier, so you will have to shred the meat and let it in the slow cooker for another hour to absorb all the juices.
  • Brown the beef – it will improve the texture and taste and also will lock in all the delicious flavors.
  • The beer can be replaced with non-alcoholic beer or beef broth.
  • If you can’t find beef consommé you can replace it with low sodium beef broth.

Can you refrigerate the beef from the slow cooker?

Yes. After cooking the meat, store it in a large airtight container in the fridge. Make sure that the beef is at least partially covered by the sauce so it doesn’t dry out. Store for up to 3-4 days.

Tools/ingredients that I used to make the Best Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches:

  • Crockpot – very reasonably prices and definitely a kitchen must have if you are busy.
  • Dried Thyme – I like to have dried thyme on hand for many recipes, including different rubs and marinades, it adds a nice flavor.
  • Garlic Powder – no recipe in my house is made without garlic, unless we are talking about cake. Garlic powder is versatile and it will add a lot of flavor to your main dishes.
  • Onion Powder – great to have on hand to season main dishes and also to make meat rubs.
  • Dried Oregano – I love this organic brand, it’s perfect to use in rubs and adds a nice flavor to meat centered dishes.
  • Bay Leaves – I like using bay leaves in my recipes, they add a nice flavor, I always use them in soups and stews.
  • Beef Consommé – great for cooking condensed soup, can be used in a lot of recipes, adds a very nice flavor.
  • French Onion Soup – so great in this recipe, it has actual pieces of onions that add so much flavor.
  • Worcestershire Sauce – definitely a specialty ingredient that it’s great to have on hand for beef recipes.
  • Beef Broth – I always use organic in recipes, it also adds a tone of flavor, you can replace the beef consommé with beef broth if you don’t have any on hand.
