Mom's French Dips

With summer in full swing there are many days that I don't want to spend much time prepping dinner. Pulling out the crockpot in the morning is so easy!  

I grew up with this recipe for French Dips. So yummy. The best part is the bread in the au jus. 

Mom's French Dips
3-4 lb chuck roast cut into 3 or 4 pieces
1 beef bouillon 
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 bay leaf
3-5 peppercorns
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
1tsp garlic powder

Remove fat and place meat in crockpot. Fill with ingredients. Add water to almost cover meat and cook on low 6-8 hours. Shred beef and add back into crockpot with about 1/2 hour left to cook.


  1. Oh! These look yummy! I'm going to have to try the recipe. I'm with you - crockpots are a life saver on days you don't wanna cook!

    1. The trick is remembering to use it!


It makes my day when you take the time to leave me a quick note!
