Wouldn’t it be great if busy moms never actually had to cook dinner at dinner time? I would SO love it if every meal I made was either a freezer meal or a crock pot meal. Maybe I’ll get there someday, but I sure have a ways to go.
What I’m working on right now is adding to my crock pot repertoire. I love using my crock pot, but I’m very picky when it comes to adding a new crock pot meal to my list of meals I make. Because of this, I only have a handful of awesome crock pot recipes I like to make.
This recipe for Crock pot French Dip Sandwiches is one of them. A friend of mine shared this recipe with me years ago and since my husband and I both liked it so much, it made the “family favorite” cut. I’m excited to share it with you today!
Funny, all my favorite crock pot recipes seem to share one thing in common: assembly takes 5 minutes or less.
Cover the meat with minced onions. Mix together the rest of the ingredients and pour over the meat so that it’s covered in water to at least half its height.
Cook on low for 10 hours. Use two forks to shred the meat. Discard any fat. That’s it!
(And if you have a tried and true family favorite crock pot recipe, I would be SO GRATEFUL if you would share it with me).
