You know when you've been married long enough to someone that you know exactly what he's going to order at a restaurant with a quick scan of the menu? Well my husband and I have been married for ten years and I can pretty much guarantee you that I can choose each one of his restaurant meals with perfection within a 30-second glance of any restaurant menu.
One of hubby's regular restaurant favourites is beef dip and for the last ten years I've left it at that — a restaurant favourite. I mean, who wants to spend all that time cooking a roast only to shred it into pieces and throw it on a bun? Not me. Until now because this Slow Cooker Beef Dip Recipe is so easy you can make it any day of the week.
Simply toss the onions and garlic into your slow cooker.
Add the roast, a few more onions and your mushrooms.
Pour in the beer and the beef broth, switch on the slow cooker to low and get on with your day.
Just before dinner, butter your buns and toast in the oven.
Cover with shredded beef, onions and cheese and throw it back in the oven for 5-6 minutes.
Enjoy (and serve the mushrooms on the side!)
2-4 lb Beef Roast (I always buy the cheap kind when slow cooking)
1 lg. onion, sliced into rings
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1 package of mushrooms (optional—I just like to serve them on the side)
1 900g package low sodium beef broth
1 can/bottle of beer
4-8 crusty buns
4-8 slices of cheese (I used mozzarella)
Spray slow cooker with non-stick spray.
Add 3/4 of onion slices and garlic to bottom of slow cooker.
Place roast on top of onions and top with remaining onions and mushrooms (if using).
Pour beer and beef broth over roast and vegetables and cook on low for 8 hours.
Before serving, slice buns in half and butter both halves. Place open buns on baking sheet and bake in pre-heated 350F oven for 3-5 minutes (until golden/toasted).
Meanwhile, remove beef from slow cooker, slice and/or shred. Place beef on top of toasted buns and top with onions and cheese. Return to oven for 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted.
Serve with au jus from slow cooker and mushrooms on the side.
