French Dip Sandwiches

French Dip Sandwiches
Mackenzie Day - Philadelphia, PA

My sister-in-law, Kari made these when we went to visit and they were so delicious I had to have the recipe.  I love a good French Dip and these are the best... of course, it's all in picking the right roll.

*I use the juices from the bottom of the crockpot as au jus, but you can also buy additional au jus at the store and combine with the juices from the crockpot for a stronger flavor.

3 lb. Beef Round Roast
2 c. Beef Broth
1 pkg. Onion Soup Mix (Lipton)
1 Large Onion
1/2 c. Red Wine
Seasonings to taste: Garlic Salt, Pepper, Seasoning Salt
Swiss or Provolone Cheese

Serves 8 - 10

Combine the broth, wine and the onion soup mix.  Set aside.
Slice Onion and place in the bottom of the crockpot.
Lay the roast on top of the onions.
Season the roast with seasonings (the ones I used are above, but you can get creative here)
Pour the broth/wine/soup mix over roast.
Cook on low 6 - 8 hours (or on high about 4 hours)
Dish beef and onions onto warm baguettes.  Add cheese.  Serve each sandwich with a cup of Au jus.  Enjoy!!!
