This slow cooker version of the classic french dip sandwich gives you delectably tender shredded beef for the ultimate comfort food lunch!


  • 2 pound beef chuck roast
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 twelve ounce bottle of beer, any type
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Soft rolls, cut in half
  • Butter
  • Sliced provolone cheese (you can substitute American or any other type that you like!)


  1. Place beef, broth and beer in a slow cooker. Cover and cook for 8-10 hours until beef is tender.
  2. Remove beef and shred into small pieces with two forks.
  3. Scoop out about a cup of cooking liquid and return beef to slow cooker.
  4. Butter the inside halves of the rolls and toast until golden (you can do this in a toaster oven, a regular oven, or by putting them face down in a skillet.
  5. Taste the meat and add salt and pepper as needed.
  6. Pile each roll half with beef. If you like cheese, lay a couple of slices on each half and run under the broiler (watching carefully!) until cheese melts.
  7. Serve with a little container of reserved juice for each sandwich.
