French Dip Sandwiches

  • Karen's Yellow Farmhouse French Dip Sandwiches with Au Jus
  • 3 1/2 to 4 lb sirloin tip roast
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp season salt
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 12 hoagie buns
  • 12 slices swiss cheese
Place roast in slow cooker.  Stir together broth, brown sugar, season salt, liquid smoke and soy sauce.  Pour over roast, cover and cook on high for 1 hour and then low for 9 hours.  Remove roast from cooker, reserving broth.  Shred roast with forks.  At this point I also strained the broth to remove anything floating around in it.   Place the beef on the hoagie buns and top with the swiss cheese.  Serve the warm au jus on the side in little cups to dunk the sammies in 
A couple of things I did differently than the recipe is that I buttered and toasted the buns - tops and bottoms and I also put the bottom part of the sandwiches with the meat and cheese under the broiler to melt the cheese.  Oh goodness these were good.  Give these a whirl you won't be sorry
