A recipe, but no pictures

Hopefully soon I will be back in the swing of things.  But I recently did cook our favorite french dip sandwiches for supper after the funeral. Here is the recipe.

French Dips in the Crockpot

beef roast 4-5 lbs
2 packages dry italian dressing mix
2 packages au jus gravy mix
2 cans beef broth or water and bouillion to make up 3 3/4 cups
sliced onions
seasonings of your choice but go easy on the salt because of the sodium in the mixes and the broth or bouillion.

Place the roast in crockpot. Mix all other ingredients except onions in a bowl till well mixed. Pour over roast. Add sliced onions around the roast. Cover and cook for about 4 hours. I have an auto setting on mine and it starts out on high and after a couple of hours switches to low. Flip roast over and cook for another 2 hours. Pull the roast apart or slice. Put back into crockpot and let cook for another 30 minutes to an hour in the juices. Serve on your favorite hoagie type bun or french bread.
Serve juice on side to dip into.

We served with chips.
