These are incredibly easy, hence the whole "Easy Crockpot French Dip Sandwiches" name. So easy that it only takes a few minutes to prep before you go to work. Come home to a wonderfully smelling home and dinner.
I usually prep things the night before and put the crock of the Crockpot in my fridge over night. If I do it that way, I can pop in frozen meat or veggies and they will defrost in the fridge over night. The next morning I putt he crock into the pot and turn it on. Walk my keester out the door and go to work. Come home and we are good to go.
I'm always looking for new Crockpot or slow cooker as most call it recipes. Please leave any and all suggestions in the comments section.

Okay, then spray the heck (with cooking spray) out of the crockpot. Layer the onions and garlic on the bottom.
Now that's what I'm talking about. Dippers.
Easy Crock Pot French Dip Sandwiches
1 medium sized onion, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cups beef broth (or two cups water and two or three tablespoons of beef base)
1 packet onion soup mix
2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup or so of dry red wine
1 beef roast-- 2 to 3 lbs
Rolls for serving
Spray your crock pot with cooking spray. Layer in the onion, top with garlic. That way it won't stick to the bottom...hopefully.
Combine the beef broth, soup mix, Worcestershire sauce and wine. Pour this mixture over the onions and garlic.
Add the beef. Season liberally with black pepper.
Cook on low for about 8 hours. If you need it to cook a bit longer, that is okay. I haven't tried it on high but I think you could cook it on high for about 4 hours. Try it out and let me know!
Once it is cooked, remove the meat and slice or shred the beef. Place it back into the crock pot with the a jus and onions.
Toast your buns, layer the meat on the buns and serve with a ramekin of a jus.
