Who wants to cook on Mondays? Not me! It’s hard enough to get everything together on a Monday morning to get out the door for work and by the time I get home, I’m usually worn out. I love my slow cooker and our family would be eating out all the time probably without it! I’m going to start sharing a favorite slow cooker recipe with you each Monday. I hope that you’ll enjoy! My time is limited in the mornings, so most of these recipes can be quickly thrown together (literally!) in a few minutes!
Today’s recipe is a family favorite – french dip sandwiches. It doesn’t get much easier than this. The only “work” involved for you is shredding the meat when you get home. They are sooo yummy!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need:
2 cans beef broth
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp garlic powder
4-6 hoagie buns
(we also add some swiss or provolone cheese)
Place roast in a greased slow cooker. Pour broth over the top of the roast. Add spices. Cover and cook on low heat 8-10 hours (or high heat 5-7 hours). Remove roast and save extra juice. With a fork, break the meat apart and serve on hoagies. Use excess juice for dipping sandwiches.
WW points = 7 points per serving (this does not include the cheese or the buns, add 2 points for the cheese and 4 points for the whole wheat bun)
Here’s the finished product. Sorry we didn’t have any “fancy” plates to make it look pretty. We were celebrating my niece’s birthday and she thought they were plenty fancy! We served these with fruit salad and veggies and dip!
