I made this recipe using a 3 pound sirloin tip roast. I seasoned my roast with onion powder, garlic powder, seasoning salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and sea salt then I browned it in a frying pan with a little oil before putting it in the crockpot. After that step, I followed the recipe exactly as written, adding the meat to the crockpot with the beef broth and french onion soup and a 16 ounce can of Miller High Life beer (a stray beer my 21 year old son left in the fridge LOL). I pulled the roast out after 5 hours and sliced it and put it back in the crockpot for an hour with the crockpot set on warm. I buttered my french rolls and sprinkled a little garlic salt on them and put them in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and then pulled them out, put meat on them and topped them with slices of mozzarella cheese and put them back in the oven under the broiler for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese. I served them with fried mushrooms, and individual bowls of au jus on the side to dip them in. The meat turned out very moist and tender but we all felt like they were just missing something, we just couldn't figure out what. They were lacking in flavor and my son said they tasted just like pot roast on a bun. I would probably make them again but they are not my favorite and I will probably try the other recipe on this site for french dip sandwiches made with soy sauce and rosemary.
