Beef Dip Sandwiches

Are you trying to convince your husband/boyfriend/man to do something for you? Make him these sandwiches. They will change his life. He will be bowing down at your feet begging for you to make these for him again and again. Trust me. I know. That's what my husband did.  

Ridiculously easy to make and ridiculously tasty, juicy, mouth-watering... you'll eat three in a row before you even realize it. I made these the first day I knew I was getting sick, which was perfect, as I didn't have to do anything in the kitchen. The crock pot did all the work for me.

You'll need a nice beef chuck roast. Place it in the crock pot and pour soy sauce and water over it. Add three bay leaves, 2 cloves of garlic, and a handful of rosemary. Let it cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, the longer the better. When you are ready to assemble the sandwiches, take two forks to shred apart the meat, which takes no trouble at all. The meat will fall apart.

I like to top them with Swiss cheese, but I bet Provolone would work too. And whatever you do, save all that juice that's left in the crock pot! You HAVE TO/MUST/NEED to dip the sandwich into it. You will not achieve it's full potential without it.

And yes, those are tater tots are on this plate. Another man's weakness. :)

4 pounds beef chuck roast
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
3 bay leaves
1 cup soy sauce
6 cups water

Place roast in slow cooker. Season with garlic, rosemary, and bay leaves. Pour in soy sauce and water. Cook on low setting for 6 to 10 hours. Unlike most roasts, the longer the better. 

To serve, place in hamburger buns or split french bread and top with your preferred cheese if desired. Feel free to dip your sandwich in the au jus left in the slow cooker too!

  1. Mmm! That sounds fabulous! I love anything with garlic and rosemary. Filing this away to try. Soon. =)

  2. This seems like a great currency to bribe! LOL. Rosemary is one of my fave herb, i can imagine how wonderful this tastes like!

  3. Christina, these sandwiches look mouthwatering! Great job on them. I'm slow-cooking pulled pork in BBQ sauce as we speak... I can't wait to enjoy a dinner similar to this tonight! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

  4. After I read through a couple of your posts and read the title of your blog I wanted to scream "boy, does she EVER!" holy moly, you have some amazing recipes on here! My favorite thing to make in the crockpot is thanksgiving turkey casserole where I put turkey, cranberries, stuffing ingredients, potatoes, spices in the crock pot. It makes an amazing stew of turkey dinner goodness [and it's a lot easier!]

  5. My husband is going to be PSYCHED! Manly meat sandwiches + tots = I ain't doing the dishes for a week.

  6. Ahhh...the lure of food...a time honored tradition. ;) What a wonderful, beef sandwich.

  7. I am certain the way to any mans heart is through his stomach. I think this is why even my little nephews love me so much - I bake for them.

  8. It's wonderful how co-operative our husbands become with the right incentive! Thanks for giving me another arrow for my quiver! Yummy recipe!

  9. Love slow cookers... and this looks fabulous! My hubby would LOVE this!

    Great blog; happy I found you!
