Thank you, Christa, for inviting me to share a super fabulous recipe perfect for FALL! My name is Renee from Living Laughing & Loving! I am Wife, Mom, Internet Addict & Pinterest Obsessed Teacher. I love all things thrifty, DIY {beautiful} blog design, and whatever I can do to save time in the kitchen!

I l-o-v-e this amazing recipe because it is SOOOOO easy and it is SOOOOO delicious. It will definitely earn you RAVE reviews from your audience. 🙂

You HAVE TO try them! 🙂

They are SO easy… effortless, really… and SO very good! This is a great recipe for company since it is sure to impress, though it does require some last minute steps.

I think the first time I made this was when friends of ours came over for dinner, and I was really hoping for a winner since Kristi is SUCH an awesome cook. I didn’t want her to have to be gagging silently during the meal or anything, you know. Adam, on the other hand… oh wait, I mean, I wanted them BOTH to like it, of course! 🙂

I was thrilled when EVERYONE raved, and I was inclined to believe they weren’t just trying to make me feel good when I saw that the crockpot was licked clean! Well, I don’t THINK Adam actually LICKED the crockpot, but if he could’ve… he might’ve. Just saying. 🙂

I also took heed when I heard my husband… son and grandson of great and mighty Southern Cooks I fear I shall never live up to… say these words, “This is SO good. It should be a once a weeker!”

Woot, Woot!

And all that after an effortless meal? I’ll take it!

I got this recipe from Mommy Hates Cooking, who was sharing from Jane Deere Blog, though I made some changes and simplified it {of course!}. I am always ALL ABOUT SIMPLE, peeps!

french dip ingredients

ingredients

  • Beef Roast {any cut… I usually do Chuck Roast.}
  • 1 packet French’s Dry Onion Soup Mix
  • Can of Beef Broth
  • Shredded or Sliced Mozzarella Cheese {enough to sprinkle on your subs}
  • 6 Sub Rolls

directions

Put the Roast, dry onion mix, and can of beef broth into the crockpot and stir. {Don’t forget your crockpot liner! Since I was halving the recipe, I substituted foil for the liner in my smaller crockpot.}

Cook on low for 8 or so hours. The absolutely delish aroma will fill the house and make you ravenous by lunch time!

A few minutes or so before dinner time carefully take your roast out of the crockpot and cool on cutting board for a few minutes. After it has cooled a bit from scalding your fingers, take a fork and knife and shred your beef.

Your scrumptious au jus sauce will be left in the crockpot ready to dish up, though honestly these are good enough to eat without any sauce!

You’re done! The yummiest meal you can’t believe was so easy is now ready to be gobbled up!
