  • 4 lb chuck or bottom round roast
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 2 10.5 oz cans beef consommé
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 2 tbsp diced or crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Pepper
  • 6 Sandwich Rolls
  • 2 tbsp Butter - Softened
  • Mayonnaise
  • Horseradish



  • Turn slow cooker on low heat.
  • Coarsely chop the yellow onion and cover the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Place roast on top of onions.
  • Pour in beef consommé and Worcestershire sauce. 
  • Add salt & pepper. 
  • Spread 1 tbsp garlic over the top of the roast
  • Place lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 5-6 hours.
  • Remove roast and place on cutting board to rest for 5 minutes.
  • While the roast is resting, turn the oven on broil.

Sandwich Rolls

  • Mix butter and 1 tbsp garlic.
  • Spread garlic butter on rolls.
  • Place rolls on a  cookie sheet under the broiler and watch for tops to turn toasty brown.
  • Remove from broiler and set on top of the stove. 
  • Spread mayonnaise and horseradish on toasted sandwich rolls.
  • Slice roast to desired thickness.
  • Assemble sandwiches.


A thinner slice will tend to shred a bit.  If you like your sandwiches a little extra juicy, place the roast slices back in the Au Jus for a couple of minutes before assembling the sandwiches.
Want some cheese on your french dip, layer slices on your sandwich roll and place it back under the broiler for a minute or two to melt the cheese.
