I've been really into sandwiches lately. Have you noticed? Deconstructed sandwiches turned salads, talk of wanting to tap into my savings of gluten-free breads, etc. After browsing through many recipes for slow cooker French dip sandwiches, I finally came up with a way to make my own without the beer, French onion soup mix, or bouillon cubes most recipes suggest. There are only six ingredients to this juicy, meaty bad boy that you can throw into a crock pot/ slow cooker. Set the cooker on low, go to work, and imagine this...dinner is done when you come home.
Just, slice your bread, add your cheese, bake some fries. It is that easy. And who doesn't love a good French dip?
Gluten Free French Dip Sandwiches
1-2 lbs. eye of round beef, or other cut suitable for roasting
1 box reduced-sodium beef broth (roughly 4 cups)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon dehydrated chopped onions
Gluten free French bread, or other good sandwich bread
Set your slow cooker on low. Season beef with salt and pepper and add to the slow cooker. Next, pour the broth, Worcestershire sauce, and onions on top of the beef. Let cook for 6-8 hours. Turn your slow cooker off. Let the meat sit in the juices and cool for 20-30 minutes, slice your bread, then shred or chunk your meat with two forks and arrange on your bread. Top the meat with cheese and your other slice of bread.
* If you are hesitant to use the Worcestershire sauce due to the carmal coloring, you can omit it. I would suggest possibly adding another 1/2 tablespoon of the dehydrated onions for an added flavor boost if you choose to do this.
