French Dip

ingredients 

Boneless Chuck Roast
Boneless Chuck Roast
One chuck roast. Lean is preferred, trim if overly marbled with fat.

HEB Beef Broth 32 oz.
32 oz Beef Broth
32 oz sounds like a lot of liquid for slow cooking but remember that this is the base for the au jus dipping sauce. It is so good there never seems to be enough.

Or other suitable hoagie/sub or ciabatta rolls.

method

Pour the beef broth and au jus mix into the crock pot. Mix well (I use a silicone whisk).  Add beef chuck roast.  Slow cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

Tear cooked roast apart with fork.  Load up a bakery roll with slow cooked beef and other toppings as desired. I like mayo, but some folks like cheese and/or carmelized onions and peppers.

Serve au jus on the side for dipping.
