I live and die by my slower cooker in the Fall and Winter. It’s just so cozy to pop a meal in to cook while I go about my day. Especially with our homeschool preschool and high school pick up routine. Planning a slow cooker meal insures a hot dinner. Otherwise, that isn’t always a guarantee. Can you say cheese, cracker and salami platter? Or fruit, yogurt and granola? Yeah, #slowcookermeals make us all happy around here :)
Remember when I shared about our quarter beef purchase? Well, I thought it was about time for another recipe that matches up with one of those cuts! May I introduce a perfect pair … slower cooker meet beef sirloin tip roast.
Slow Cooker Beef Roast French Dip
- 3 pounds (approximately) sirloin tip beef roast
- 2 cups beef broth
- 2 tablespoons seasoning blend of salt, pepper, garlic salt, etc.
- Optional: Au ju seasoning/dip/packet
- 2 onions
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Sandwich buns
- Swiss cheese
Season the roast, pour beef broth in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place roast in slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours. Remove roast from slow cooker and place on a cutting board. Allow the roast to rest for 15 minutes before slicing. Taste au jus for seasoning, adjust as needed. I added some Johnny’s liquid au jus to give it more flavor.
While the roast is finishing up, prep the other components of your sandwich. First, caramelized onions. In a cast iron pan melt butter and add olive oil. Slice 2 onions, add to butter oil combo and cook over low heat until caramelized.
Next, grill buns with a touch of butter, add sliced meat, onions and Swiss cheese. Dip in au jus and enjoy!
