French Dip Recipe

1 beef chuck roast (3 lbs) trim most of the fat off

2 cups water

½ cup soy sauce

1 tsp dried rosemary

1 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp garlic powder

1 bay leaf

3-4 whole peppercorns

8 French rolls, split

Place roast in a slow cooker. Add water, soy sauce and seasonings. Cover; cook on high for 5-6 hours or until beef is tender. Remove the meat from the broth and shred it using a couple of forks. Serve on rolls. Strain broth; skim off fat. Using a ladle or large spoon, place broth into small cups for dipping. Yield: 8 servings.

Leftover meat & broth can be frozen for later use. You can also dilute leftover broth by adding water (if I have two cups of broth, I add up to 2 cups of water.) Then add any raw vegetables you prefer. Simmer until veggies are done, then add leftover meat. This makes a very flavorful soup.

I have tried using different cuts of meat, but a chuck roast cut about 1 ½-2 inches thick seems to be best.
