Ridiculously Simple French Dip Sandwich

Nov 2, 2015 by Capt. John Wampler

It’s been awhile since I’ve cooked something in the slow cooker, so on a recent trip to the Bahamas, I thought that French Dip sandwiches would be a terrific meal. This recipe has only five ingredients and is so simple to make it’s almost embarrassing.

Ingredients:

3 pound fresh brisket (not corned beef)

1 package onion soup mix

14.5 oz. can of beef broth

Sliced Provolone cheese

French bread or mini-baguettes

 

Spray the inside of the crockpot with cooking spray. Trim off any excess fat from the brisket and place it in the bottom of the crockpot.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the beef broth and onion soup mix and pour over the brisket.

Set the crockpot to low and cook 8-10 hours.

Remove brisket from crockpot to a cutting board and slice thinly across the grain of the meat.

Split the French bread or baguette and pile beef on the bottom half. Cover meat with the cheese.

Butter the top half of the bread and then place sandwich, open-face, on a cookie sheet. Place on the second from top rack in a hot oven and broil for 30 seconds.

Ladle cooking liquid from crockpot into a ramekin and plate with the sandwich. Incredibly good. Enjoy. JW
