  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


French Dips are made with a chuck roast slow cooked in a crockpot with french onion soup, beef broth, red wine and rosemary and then placed on a sub with melty provolone cheese.


  • 2 can French onion soup
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 rosemary sprig
  • ground pepper
  • 3 pounds chuck roast
  • 12 provolone cheese slices
  • 6 sub sandwich buns
  • butter
  • chopped parsley, optional garnish


  1. Place chuck roast into crockpot. Sprinkle over some ground pepper.
  2. Pour in beef broth, red wine and french onion soup.
  3. Top with a sprig of rosemary.
  4. Let cook on low for 10 hours or until the meat easily shreds.
  5. Remove meat from crockpot and shred.
  6. Use a ladle to spoon out the juices left in the crockpot and strain. This will be your au jus for dipping.
  7. Heat oven to a broil.
  8. Open up and butter the subs.
  9. Place buttered subs onto a baking sheet and broil for 2 minutes to get a little crisp.
  10. Remove buns from oven, pile on some shredded meat with a couple slices of cheese on the bottom halves of the subs.
  11. Place back into oven for a minute so the cheese can get melty.
  12. Remove from oven, garnish with parsley and put the top of the subs on sandwich.
  13. Serve with au jus for dipping.
