A Delicious "Wet" Sandwich

There are two restaurants in Los Angeles who claim to be the original home of the French Dip Sandwich. One restaurant is Cole's Pacific Electric Buffet. The other one is Phillipe The Original. Both restaurants were opened in 1908. Both served hot beef on a french roll. Both served the sandwiches "au jus" which means with juice. This juice typically is the juice the beef was cooked in but may also be beef consomme or beef broth.

This is an easy and truly tasty variation of this dish. I really enjoy it and look forward to cooking it again soon. Great served with a dill pickle spear (Claussens) and your favorite chips. Top the sandwich with a little dijon or brown mustard for a flavor delight.

Serve the sandwich with a bowl of au jus reserved in the crock pot (liquid roast cooked in).

After cooking the beef roast all day in the crock pot, shred it up into small pieces using two forks.  Should shred easily.

Serve this french dip sandwich on hard rolls.  It is important to have hard rolls so the bread doesn't get to moist when dipped in the au jus.

Split the rolls, top one side of each roll with cheese, then toast them until melted in the oven.  Top each sandwich with shredded beef and steak sauce (or any sauce you want).
