Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwich

 Ummmm....oh my goodness.  I found this recipe on bakingbites blog, and it's pretty much one of my favorite finds of all internet times.  The good cooks itself...gotta love a crockpot that does the work while I do the 'employed somewhere outside my home' thing.  I'm not a big red meat kind of gal, so.....that makes it triple good in my book.  Whatever book that is....  And how perfect are French Dips for the fall....or the winter....or days that end in Y? 
Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwich Recipe 

Ingredients: 3 1/2 lb beef chuck roast, 16 oz beef broth, 10.5 oz condensed french onion soup, 6 oz red wine, 1 t. garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste, 1 t. garlic powder.  4-6 french roles, sliced provolone cheese.
Instructions:  Trim fat off the roast, season with salt and pepper.  Add all the ingredients (minus cheese and hoagies) to slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours.  Rest beef covered with foil for 15 min.  Slice and return to slower cooker for 30 minutes. 
Toast bread and cheese, add beef.  If there is excess fat in the Au Jus pour into measuring cup, let stand for 5 min, skim fat off the top.

Thank you for this recipe. I am tired of pot roast. I will be making this for dinner on Monday. I love French dip sandwiches.

French DIps used to be my all time favorite thing to order at a restaurant. They are so darn good. So cool cooked in the crock pot. I'll remember this one. Thanks!
