Cooking Thursday

Todays recipe has many things going for it!  It's a freezer meal, cooks in the crock pot, is very easy to throw together and it's so good!  I like to buy a roast when it's on sale for this.  It's flexible; if there are only two of you at home you can do like I do and cut the roast in half and freeze it in 2 bags to make 2 meals.  Or you can throw it right in the crock pot and skip the freezer meal part!  You'll like it however you make it.


French Dip Sandwiches
1 - 3 pound beef chuck roast
2 cups water
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3-4 whole peppercorns
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
slices of swiss or colby jack cheese
sub sandwich buns
Mix water, soy sauce, rosemary, garlic powder, peppercorns, thyme and bay leaf in large freezer bag.  Place roast into bag and freeze.  When ready to use, remove from freezer and thaw in fridge for 24 hours.  Place in crock pot and cook on low for at least 12 hours, until meat is very tender.  Shred meat with 2 forks.  Place on sub bun with a slice of cheese.  Pour broth into individual small cups and serve with sandwich for dipping.

That is an interesting recipe. I had to read it twice to see if I was correct about freezing with the marinade. I will be trying this one. Sounds so yummy.

It's been a long time since I've had French dip. That's what I love about recipe posts, it jogs the old memory for 'new' ideas.

This looks great & so versatile too. You could change spices to make it an Italian dip too. I'm going to try that tomorrow night and serve them on ciabetta rolls w/provolone cheese. Thanks Mari!
