These french onion french dip sandwiches are SO easy. They use chuck roasts, and make their own jus. This is one of my favorite meals, ever.
French Onion French Dip Sandwich
These sandwiches are made with a chuck roast that has been slow cooked to tender awesomeness. They are perfect for not only my pot roast…
But also for these awesome tequila lime shredded beef tacos.
These french onion french dip sandwiches are SO easy.
First, just liberally season your chuck roast on both sides. Then preheat a few tablespoons of oil, and brown the roast on both sides.
Make sure you wait and don’t move that roast for a few minutes because you want that nice brown crust on it. That’s all flavor!
After the roast is browned, put it in your roasting pan, and lightly saute some sliced onion. Add a cup of red wine, and a cup of a high quality beef broth.
Simmer that for a couple minutes, and then pour it all right over the top of the roast.
Put a cover on it, and roast it for 4-5 hours on 300.
Chunk it up with two forks, and stir around the juices.
Put heaping amounts on a toasted hoagie roll.
And smother with swiss cheese if that’s your thing.
Pull out some of those pan juices, and serve alongside the roast for dipping.
