Mealtime Monday: Crockpot Roast French Dip Sandwiches

Posted on

Here we go again with another Mealtime Monday.  Now that it is getting cold again, I love to pull out my crockpot for soups, stews and roasts.  One of our go-to crock pot meals is making a French Dip roast.  The meat simmers all day so it falls apart and is so juicy, making amazing French Dip Sandwiches with plenty left over for tacos, enchiladas or any other meal you can think of that uses shredded beef.
