This recipe is fantastic! It is for Low-Calorie, Slow-Cooker French Dip Sandwiches. I am an affiliate of meals, so I have permission to share their recipe with you. Now onto the french dip sandwiches crock pot recipe that you will love! I am a thankfully member of e-meals (I say thankfully because it has been a huge time-saver for me, to not have to plan out my meals). This is a service that provides me wonderful, easy, tasty weekly recipes. Every Wednesday, I receive an e-mail that has recipes for the week and a printable grocery list, set for the store that I picked. I also picked the sort of food that I want: Paleo, Vegetarian, Low-Calorie, Slow-Cooker, etc… You will pick all of this when you sign up or when you change options in your recipes or plans.
I picked Low-Calorie this week (you can change your plan, so I change it every few weeks, but so far I have been really loving the low-calorie and the crock-pot recipes).
Here is the latest meal that I made using their recipes.
Here is the original recipe that came in the e-mail I got from my emeal (this recipe is for a family of six. You will also tell them that part when you sign up. We have six family members, so they plan our recipes accordingly. Here are the ingredients
14 oz. can beef broth
1 packet dry onion soup mix
2 lbs chuck roast (I bought 3 pounds & cut off the fat, but I still had more than 2 lbs after trimming it & it was still great)|
6 frozen (or fresh) french rolls. I think emeals does frozen in case you don’t eat it the day that you buy the ingredients, but we ate ours the next day, because the fresh rolls were on sale.
Here is how I made it.
- I sprayed the crock pot with non-stick spray first, for easier clean up.
- Put beef broth & soup mix into crock pot & mix it around.
- Turn the crock pot on.
- Add well-trimmed chuck roast and mix it in with the broth mixture.
- Cook it all day (8 hours on low. I started mine a little late, so I cooked it for 4 hours on high and then 2 hours on low)
- When it is cooked, shred it with two forks
- Cut open the rolls & place the meat on the rolls.
- Top with cheese
- Cook it until the cheese is melted- just a few minutes- in the oven. (One of our kids preferred without being toasted, so that’s an option, too)
- Serve with a side of the broth mixture. (I gave our kids a bowl of it to use for a dipping sauce)
There you have it! It is delicious! If you are thinking about getting emeals sent to your inbox, I would not hesitate! It is worth it (the planning of the meals is the hardest part for me and they take care of that- they make meal planning easier)! In the meantime, here is another recipe that I shared last week from emeals.
