Time to bring out the slow cooker again, because I've got a deliciously easy recipe for you. What crock pot recipe isn't easy and who doesn't like delicious?!
My french dips are not exactly the traditional style, seeing as I don't have a slicer to cut the meat into thin slices. Instead, I slow cook a roast of beef until it's nice and tender, shred it and then return it to the crock pot for a bit to soak up all of the flavorful juices.
There are several different cuts of beef that could work for this recipe. A chuck roast would work well...a little bit on the fatty side, but the fat adds flavor! If I order my usual package from the meat market, I'll have a sirloin roast on hand, so that is what I used this time around.
I love the idea of making a meal that can be made over into something else with the leftovers and that's exactly what you can do with this recipe. Your leftover beef can be used for shredded beef tacos, quesadillas, or beef stew. I've even had the beef over a crisp garden salad. Yum!
