Kind of…the cheater kind!
For Groundhogs Day I made Slow Cooker French Dip for dinner. The husband woke me up early to do something for him and I couldn’t get back to sleep so I got up and took some photos and prepared dinner for the evening. Here’s the recipe…
2lb Rump Roast
Kosher Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper
2 Cans Low Sodium Beef Broth
2 Cans French Onion Soup
1 Package of Brown Gravy Mix
2 Tbls Olive Oil
Season roast with salt & pepper. In a skillet or non-stick pan, sear roast, in olive oil, about 3 minutes on each side, at medium/high heat, don’t forget the ends. Mix broth, soup, and gravy mix in slow cooker. Place seared roast in slow cooker and set to 8 hours.
After 8 hours remove roast and let rest. Strain liquid left in slow cooker into a small sauce pan to make an Au Jus. Heat over medium/high heat and season with salt & pepper to taste. Slice or shred beef and serve on fresh rolls with warmed Au Jus.
I made mashed potatoes and corn to go with the french dip and served it open faced…
From bottom to top: Bottom half of a toasted roll, mashed potatoes, sliced beef, corn, and topped with a drizzle of Au Jus. It was wonderful and super easy!
I’ve been watching way too much Chef Gordon Ramsay on TV! Although this may be a little rudimentary for him, for those of us in the middle of no-where this is some pretty high end stuff. I do get points for presentation, right?
