"My Family loves French Dips so I created this super simple recipe I can throw together any time. The best part is the juice is created along with the roast." — Todi

beef sirloin roast
1 (1 ounce) packet
dry au jus mix
8 (1 ounce) slices
hoagie rolls, split lengthwise
Very easy recipe!!! and good too. To misfit and others who find the juice to be to greasy...This is a very old trick my Grandmother used to do, float a couple of lettuce leaves on top off the juice before placing the sliced meat back in the juice. The lettuce soaks up the grease. Keep doing this until all the grease is gone. MUCH faster than placing juice in the fridge to congeal. I have done this for years! Also, should one find anything too salty, place a pealed potato in what ever, cook for a while, then remove the potato. DON'T EAT potato as it will be very salty. Both of these suggestions are from my Grandmother. She was the BEST cook ever!!
This is an easy recipe, however, I doubt the author 'created' this as this recipe has been around on nearly every crockpot website for years. Very salty if made as written.
This was so delicious!!! I did do a few changes. I add a cup of beef broth, and 2 cups water. Then I added a bay leaf, oregano, garlic powder, salt and pepper. So wonderful and flavorful. I will definitely make this again!
amazing! except we found the jus to be very greasy?? Anything we can do to help this problem?
I did modify this recipe a bit for what I had on hand, which meant that I used a packet of onion soup mix instead of au jus mix, but I otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The beef smelled lovely, and once it was done I removed it from the slow cooker and shredded it. I strained the juices through a sieve to remove the onion, and refrigerated them so the fat would congeal at the top for easy removal. My husband says he prefers this version to the pricey sandwich shop downtown -- thanks!
This is amazing! I have used this so many times. Key is type of roast and adding the beef broth as mentioned in an earlier quote to keep down the grease content. So easy! thank you for sharing.
This was great. I used top round london broil, added a can and a half of beef broth and a cup of water to the recipe. Once done, I sliced the meat, put it on a hoagie roll with onions and swiss cheese and toasted it in the oven for five minutes. I will definately make this again.
Very good and simple. Great for a busy day or a lazy one! I used stock instead of the water for extra flavor . I also used swiss. Don't forget the horseradish. My 4yr old and 6yr old both loved it. My picky husband ate two huge sandwiches. The leftovers are pretty yummy too.
