Slow Cooked French Dip
There isn't one season of the year that I don't use my slow cooker, I use it year-round. There's nothing like coming home after a busy day and having the house filled with the smell of supper ready and waiting to be enjoyed, it's fabulous. At the holidays, I use it for pineapple brown sugar glazed ham and Dr Pepper barbecue beef for sandwiches during the week. I make classic chuck roast and vegetables in my slow cooker all of the time, as I'm sure many of you do. It's a natural transition to use a similar technique for making a slow cooked french dip sandwich.
Slow Cooker French Dips are Idea for Any Day of the Week
