French Dip Sandwiches

This is a quick and easy crockpot meal.  It is filling, savory, and sure to please everyone you serve it to!  The sauce from the crockpot, called Au jus sauce, (pronounced "ahhh-jew") is great for dipping the sandwiches in.  The crockpot cooks the meat to the perfect tenderness, and the combination of soy sauce, rosemary, and thyme gives the sauce just the right flavor.  C'est si bon!


1 (4 pound) boneless beef round
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 beef bouillon cube
1 bay leaf
3 whole peppercorns
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Hoagie buns (6-8)


Remove and discard all visible fat from the roast. Place trimmed roast in a slow cooker. 
In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, bouillon, bay leaf, peppercorns, rosemary, thyme, and garlic powder. 
Pour mixture over roast, and add enough water to almost cover roast. 
Cover, and cook on low heat for 10 to 12 hours, or until meat is very tender. 
Remove meat from broth, reserving broth. Shred meat with a fork, and distribute on bread for sandwiches. 
Use reserved broth for dipping.

Happy munching!
