Secret Recipe Club: French Dip Sandwiches
My most exciting time of the month - Secret Recipe Club reveal day!
I had the pleasure to be assigned the blog Mom's Fridge. I've been to Barb's blog before and everything on there is a hodge-podge of comfort food and foods that make you think of home (if you're not already there, of course). You can find things like Ranch-Style Macaroni Salad to Caramel Filled Snickerdoodles. She's got it all!
One thing that stuck out in my head were these French Dip Sandwiches, though. I've just been so busy at work and school that I hardly ever have time to cook anything. So what better way to feel like I slaved over a meal than to throw it all in the crockpot! It's my favorite time-saving kitchen device. So without further delay, let's get to it!
Adapted from Mom's Fridge
3 lb. bottom-round roast
2 cups beef stock
1 small onion, diced
salt and pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 baguettes, toasted
Heat a large skillet under medium high heat and add olive oil. Season meat on both sides with salt and pepper. Sear the meat in the skillet on all sides until you get a nice golden brown.
Place the seared meat into the crockpot and add beef stock, onion, and garlic powder.
Place on HIGH for 1 hour and then reduce heat to LOW for at least 6 hours.
Shred the meat and place on toasted baguettes. Serve with strained broth from crockpot. Dip to your heart's content!
This was a wonderful meal! I just loved dipping the sandwiches into the flavorful broth. This was definitely an easy winner for us!
