What is a French Dip Sandwich

A French Dip is hot sandwich filled with slices of tender beef, cooked in a rich au jus (wine broth) and served on a crusty french bread with melted cheese. 

While I don’t normally use red wine when making my French Dip, I do like to occasionally use a good dark beer. However, for today’s version, I thought I would try it without alcohol, since so many of you ask for alcohol free recipes!

This is one of my many instant pot recipes that my family makes week after week!

Can this French Dip be made in the Slow Cooker?

Absolutely. If you check out my Slow Cooker French Dip Sammies recipe you’ll find my easy and delicious version. Whichever route you choose, you won’t be disappointed.

You can even use some of the leftover meat and make this yummy French Dip Sliders recipe. The original recipe calls for deli meat, but it’s equally good with the real stuff!

What to serve with French Dip Sandwiches?

I highly recommend this Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole recipe. It’s pure comfort food, sometimes know as funeral potatoes, but so good!

This Ritz Cracker Mac and Cheese is also a wonderful side dish to serve with French Dips. In a hurry? Make this Copycat Panera Mac and Cheese in minutes!

Some people think Sweet Potato Casserole is only for Thanksgiving, I would disagree. It’s a favorite in our house any night of the week!

  1. Hi, if I double the recipe, should I double the time? I have an 8quart pot. I always cook for a crowd!

  2. These are the most delicious sandwiches I’ve ever had in my life, they are incredible! We make them every week and for get togethers and everyone raves about them. 5 stars all the way!!

  3. I made this with a 3 lb chuck. Followed time and all.shredded and meat is very tough. Any way to make it tender at this time.

  4. I followed this exactly as it said and my 3lb chuck roast is tough and not falling apart at all. What did I do wrong?

  5. Such a great recipe, I can’t wait to make these sandwiches again. I think that I might make them for the Super Bowl! 

  6. I love making French Dip and, now that I have an Instant Pot, I’ll have to try your recipe in place of my crockpot version. It looks totally delicious and perfect for my upcoming Super Bowl party.

    1. It does not, because people like my husband like JUST the meat, and there are so many varieties of rolls to consider…..
