I am all about meals that are easy, but taste like they took you hours. Am I right? I also love meals that I can pop in the crock pot in the morning and then have minimal preparation come dinner time. What's more? I love meals that make great leftovers.
These easy crock pot french dip sandwiches check all of those boxes.

Easy Crock Pot French Dip
These slow cooker French dip sandwiches really are incredibly easy to throw together. Below you will find a step by step pictorial, or scroll down to the recipe card to view a video tutorial as well.
Top Left - Add your roast, beef consommé and Italian dressing to the slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours, or until meat shreds easily with two forks.
Top Right - After your meat is done cooking, set your oven to broil. Open your sandwich rolls on a cookie sheet and butter each side. Add provolone cheese to one side of the rolls, if desired.
The butter acts as a barrier so that the extra juice from the meat doesn't make your buns soggy in 2 seconds. I do not love soggy things, and this works really well. If you add cheese, that obviously helps also.
Bottom Left - Broil your buns for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and the buns are golden brown. Watch the oven carefully, because things can burn quickly on broil.
Bottom Right - Shred your roast and add desired amount of meat onto sandwich buns. Serve with remaining au jus.
These sandwiches make great leftovers as well. Just store meat in the refrigerator and buns in a ziplock bag.
