This is a super easy way to make a very tender and tasty french dip sandwich. Cook it overnight for lunch or all day for dinner and you have a great cold weather meal. I added a salad and sweet potato fries as sides and we enjoyed a great meal.

    I'm sort of a health nut now, so french bread and beef are not my normal fare. But this recipe is just SO GOOD! I haven't had a French Dip in years, and this is the best I can remember. Give it a try when you feel like transgressing. Everyone in our family loved it...even the baby!

        My family and I have been searching for a recipe for french dips, and it looks like our search is over. This is great and it made for a great 4th of July meal. I made some simple modifications, my husband is allergic to beer so I omitted that, and it still turned out wonderful.

        This is a variation

          Very tasty! I did not add mushrooms but still tasted great! The only problem I had was slicing the meat. It was so tender that it just fell apart and I wasn't able to slice it thin.

            This was soooo tasty and the meat was oh so tender! My kids loved it too and I look forward to making it again!

                I have made french dip sandwiches in the crockpot before and they are a family favorite. The addition of beer and mushrooms in your recipe is quite interesting. Might have to try it this way next time I make it.

                  ...adding slow cooker to my wish list, right under "bigger kitchen"

                    Hi Jason,

                    Just noticed your question. My slow cooker (crock pot) has a low and a high setting and I usually use it on high until the meat is tender and turn it down if need be. This is a great recipe so I hope you'll try it!

                      What does "cook on high" mean? Does the meat go in a dutch oven on the stove and boil on high for 7 hours?
