Super easy crockpot meal! Our Slow Cooker Beef Dip II is great for those hot days when you don’t want to turn the oven on! Considering our current heat wave, this was a perfect meal! And I love anything that cooks in a crockpot! This was an adaptation of the Slow Cooker Beef Dip recipe found here.
*Printable Recipe: Slow Cooker Beef Dip II
1-3 lbs of Boneless Beef Roast (any kind, I get whatever is on sale at the time)
1 pkg Onion Soup Mix
1 pkg Au Jus
2 – 15oz Can Beef Broth
1 Can of Water
6 Sub Buns
Butter or Margarine
1 pkg of Sliced Provolone Cheese (we use Sargento’s Round Provolone Cheese Slices)
Dump roast into the crockpot. In a bowl, mix together the onion soup mix, Au Jus, cans of beef broth and water. Dump over roast (I fork the roast and lift it up enough that the liquids get underneath of the roast). Cook on high for 6 hours or until roast is fully cooked and fork tender (you can also cook on low for 8 hours, perfect to put together before work and almost ready to serve when you get home from work). Remove roast from crockpot and shred using two forks. Place meat back in the crockpot. Butter top and bottom slices of the sub buns. Broil in oven till slightly toasted around the edges. Remove from oven. Romove top buns and put aside. Pile on the shredded beef evenly between the 6 sub bottoms. Place provolone cheese slices on top (it’s way ok if the cheese hangs over, lol). Return covered bun bottoms to the oven and broil just until cheese is melted and golden. Remove from oven and place bun tops on top of the bun bottoms. Strain all the lumps and bumps out of the liquid that remained in the crockpot and split liquid into small bowls for dipping. Dip away and enjoy!
If wanting to serve up to 12, double the recipe and use 2 crockpots! We made this at my sister’s house when she took in our family while our electricity was still out at our home. We put 3 lbs of beef roast in each crockpot. It went really well with our Cheesy Potato Casserole. FYI: The scent is heavenly while the roast is crocking away! I really can’t begin to tell you how fantastic this!
Did you make too much and have some beef dip leftover? Don’t fret…make the No Onion Soup (AKA Beef Soup) for lunch tomorrow!
