French Dip Sandwiches

Alright, this one is delicious and super easy!!!

ATTENTION: This meal takes at least 5 hours of Crock pot cooking (unattended), so MUST BE STARTED AT LEAST 5 HOURS BEFORE YOU PLAN ON EATING.

-1 Roast
-32 0z Beef Stock (or the same amount of water with 2 or 3 beef Bullion cubes)
-1 Medium (2 small) Onions (rough Chopped)
-2 TBS Butter
-2-4 Cloves of Garlic, whole (depends on how much you like Garlic)
-1 Bay leaf
-Salt and Pepper to taste (start with a tsp and go from there)

French Baguette and cheese of choice


Combine all ingredients in a crock pot, put on high, and let it go all day. The longer the better. IF the liquid starts looking a little low (should cover about 1/2 the roast) add more water. Literally, if you start in the morning and leave it alone it will be ready by dinner. You know it's ready when you put a fork in it and it falls apart.

When the roast is done, pull it out of the crock pot and shred the entire thing. Then place the meat onto a slice of the french baguette with your favorite cheese. I love white cheddar for this, but provolone is good too, or Swiss. Or no cheese at all. Be sure to serve each sandwich with a portion of the Liquid from the crock pot to dip it in. Trust me, this one is DELICIOUS!!!

NOTE: If you don't have the 15 minutes it takes to make this in the morning, you can substitute everything but the roast for a packet of dry french onion soup mix and water. It will not taste the same, but will create the same yummy sandwich and take about 2 minutes.
