Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches
Our meals have been somewhat uninspired lately….I was sick and not really feeling like cooking much. In the the past two weeks, The Picky Apple has been subject to a quite a few repeats and boring old standbys. I also asked him to pick up takeout on his way home from work more times than I care to remember (Not that there’s anything wrong with takeout. I was just beginning to feel like a domestic failure). Now that I’m feeling a little better, I’ve got the cooking and baking “itch” again, so watch out!
A few nights ago, I made Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches after reading about them on Baking Bites, one of my favorite blogs. I love French Dip Sandwiches! The Picky Apple, as it turns out, doesn’t like them as much as me. I probably could have guessed that though. He has a serious aversion to anything resulting in soggy bread. French onion soup is the biggest soggy bread offender in his book. (Coincidentally, my all time favorite soup!) Bread pudding is not something he’ll be requesting anytime soon. So he ate his sandwich sans au jus, which kind of goes against the whole idea of French dip, if you ask me. But to each his own. We both liked the flavor of the meat. I thought it was melt in your mouth good, especially with some fresh bread and melted smoked provolone! If you like French Dip Sandwiches, then you have got to try this…Check out the recipe here!
