Amish Style Roast and French Dip Sandwiches

Tonight we had french dip sandwiches, because this weekend we had Amish Style Roast!  I always love it when we have left-over roast because it makes such great "dipping" sauce for sandwiches! 
I don't know if it is truly "Amish" or not, but as teenager, my family would always stop at this "Amish"  restaurant (ok, they had electricity so they were Mennonite) and their roast tasted like this.

The roast couldn't be easier!  Throw into a crock pot the roast, a can of french onion soup, a can of beef consumme', and a can of beef broth.    I cook it all day, until it's falling apart.    I shred what's not already shredded.  Serve over mashed potatoes or whatever.   Keep the "juice" separate for the next meal.

That's one meal.

Later in the week, I break out the hoagie rolls for French Dip sandwiches! 

 I like to slices of Swiss cheese on the bread and toast 'em
I know, they look like hot dog buns, don't they?  Honest, they're not!

I found this stuff at the grocery store.  It's for sprinkling over olive oil and dipping bread into, but I have used it on everything except that! It's so good.  I even sprinkled it in the stew I made last night, so I figured, would could it hurt to sprinkle it on top of the melted cheese, right?   YUM!

and then...

this caught my eye.    And yes, it was delicious on the sandwich!

So, there you have it, two meals in one.  Gotta love that, right?


  1. one word. yummmmmm!

  2. My husband loves french dip. He would love this. Not sure I could sell it to the kids. They are very picky...but yummy! Looks good to me.

  3. MMmmmm! I can smell this cooking in my crock pot.
    A fantastic change for school lunch too.

  4. Wow...between this and the mushroom stew, where do I start?! The sandwich looks amazing!

  5. What a good idea to turn 1 meal into 2! I LOVE a good french dip! Looks delish!
