Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches

Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches are an easy way to put a fantastic, hearty meal on the table. With tender beef, a top a toasted sandwich roll, dipped in delectable, savory sauce that's melt in your mouth delicious. Make in your slow cooker, this recipe is so easy it just about cooks itself!


In my kitchen, easy is the name of the game.  This recipe is easier than some beef crockpot recipes since you don't have to brown the meat before putting it in your crockpot.  Once it cooks all day, it comes out tender and just pulls apart. My husband says this recipe is by far better than ANY french dip he's ever had - restaurant style or homemade.  When he knows I'm making these tender beef sandwiches, he can't wait to get home for dinner! Since the recipe is as simple as throwing 5 ingredients in a crockpot, it's a weeknight and game day favorite.

Hi! It's Erin From Suburban Simplicity here with an amazing (and easy) recipe for Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches everyone in my family gobbles up.

The flavor of the au jus (dipping) sauce, in combination with the melted provolone cheese, lightly toasted roll, and succulent meat is just perfect!  Dreamy if you ask my husband! With our house full of meat eaters, it's nice to have a go-to recipe everyone loves.  Plus, it's wonderful leftover the next day, especially dipped in the yummy sauce that simmered all day.

The other weeknight recipe my family loves in this Crockpot Pizza Casserole.


  • The recipe calls for beef chuck roast, but I've also used a cross rib roast, which is even more tender. Get whichever one is on sale.
  • You can add sliced onions to the crockpot with the meat if you prefer more atop your sandwich.
  • For the most tender beef, cook in the crockpot on low.
  • Hoagie, French or sourdough rolls all work with this recipe.


  • Slow Cooker - One of the best investments in the kitchen that saves time.  The easiest way to put dinner on the table because you just set it and forget it.
  • Jelly Roll Pans (baking sheets with sides) - used for everything from cookies to roasting, a good baking pan will last for years.

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches
SERVES 8  |  PREP TIME 10 Min  |  COOK TIME 4 Hours 30 Min

3-4 pounds beef chuck roast
2 cans (10.5 ounces each) condensed French Onion Soup
1 can (10.5 ounces) Beef Consommé
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
8 sandwich or hoagie rolls
8 slices provolone cheese

Place the roast in crockpot. Pour the soup and consomme over the top and then add garlic and Worcestershire sauce.

Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. (For the most tender beef, cook on low)

For the dipping sauce, once beef is done cooking, remove 3 cups of the juice from the crockpot and place in small saucepan. Turn heat to medium and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let cook for about 10 minutes or reduced by about half.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Transfer the beef to a plate or cutting board and cut into thin slices or shred with a fork.

Open sandwich rolls and lay out on a baking sheet, place meat on each roll and top with provolone cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and rolls are slightly toasted.

Serve immediately with the dipping sauce on the side.

So pile some tender beef on a toasted deli roll and let's eat!!
