Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

2-3 lb. beef roast
2 - 14 oz. cans beef broth
2 packets onion soup mix
2 cups water
hoagie buns
swiss cheese

I found a cheap rump roast that worked and tasted great! Brown roast on each side. This should only take a few minutes on each side. Salt and pepper it as you brown it. Next place the roast in the crock pot, add 2 cups water, 2 cans broth, and packets of onion soup mix. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low 8-10 hours. Before you shred the beef, take out the roast and empty the juice from the crock pot. You can use this as the au jus. Shred the beef. We like to heat the buns up by buttering them, then browning them on an electric griddle. We add swiss cheese to the sandwiches and slice up some potatoes to make homemade fries which go great with these sandwiches. Enjoy!

Love French Dip! And the recipe I have (which is pretty much this exact recipe) is by far the best one I've tried! If you like a little extra, I like to slice an onion and cook it with the beef, and then put those onions on the sandwich. Try it next time! (If you don't hate onions ...)
