French Dip Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker


4 ingredients (6 if you count the cheese and buns) + 1 slow cooker = 1 splendiferous dinner.  And, in case you wondered, splendiferous is in the online thesaurus.  It’s a more funtastic word than “good”, don’t you think?

I used cube steaks to make these sandwiches, but you can use round steak or another cut if you like.  Here’s what you’ll need:

French Dip Sandwiches in the Slow Cooker

    I tried this recipe as written and ended up with hockey pucks in the bottom of my crockpot.
    There must be some step missing that adds moisture to the process.

  6. Awesome recipe! Added a can of beef broth and some garlic. My husband loved it! Thanks 🙂

  7. I assume the worcestershire goes in with the steak, onions and peppers? Can’t believe there’s no other liquids in the recipe!! What size slow cooker?

  8. Are you putting the meat in frozen or thawed? I can’t imagine 1 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce is enough to cook a 2 lb cube steak. But I don’t use my crockpot very often so please explain! 🙂

    • Liz, I sometimes do the meat frozen or partially frozen. Because the onions and beef create liquid as they cook, you really only will need 1 Tbs. worcestershire sauce. There will be plenty of liquid.

  9. Making these tonight!!!…Can’t wait… I have a big crock pot so hoping that they will still turn out.. will cook on warm…
