Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches

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.

  1. Hi Miss Donna ~ all the stores have is progresso French Onion Soup (love their soups) but it is not condensed- will this make a difference in the recipe? ~ thank you in advance

  2. This is excellent. I did not have soup as recipe. Substituted Knorr Onion Soup. Would definitely make this for company too
