Did you know you can make French Dip Sandwiches using your crock pot? This Slow Cooker French Dip recipe will amaze you with how easy it is!


  • 5 pounds Beef Rump Roast
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons Grill seasoning (I use McCormick)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons beef bouillon granules
  • 2 Tablespoons minced onion
  • 1 ½ cup beef stock
  • 12 ounces Beer (darker the better)


  1. Place roast in large crockpot. Season with salt, grill seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, beef bouillon and minced onion. Add broth and beer to crockpot, cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
  2. Take out the meat, slice or shred it (it will be falling apart). Strain the au jus so there are no clumps of meat or fat (I just use a mesh strainer). Serve french dip on french bread with cheddar cheese and side of au jus. Enjoy!


  • This makes A LOT of beef, so be ready to serve a crowd.
  • You can also freeze this for later! Once it's all cooked, strain the au jus and put beef and juice in a freezer safe Ziploc bag.
  • If you don't have (or don't prefer) cheddar cheese, French Dip is also good with Provolone!
  • You can also make an Instant Pot French Dip if you want dinner even faster!
  • Serve it up with a side of corn casserole and broccoli salad.
