French Dip

This is a super easy meal that can feed a lot! When I say super easy, I mean it literally takes 5 minutes to prep and maybe 5 more after it cooks. When I first made this, I didn't expect much, but my husband raved about how good it was. This time around we shredded some horseradish cheese over the top and it was delicious! I actually think the best part is the drippings, they are so flavorful and you just dip your sandwich in it. Yum!

French Dip
from A Thrifty Mom

In your crock pot add:
Frozen roast beef, ( any size, the bigger it is, the more people it will feed!)
One package dry Italian seasoning salad dressing packet ( about 2 tbsp spoons if you buy in bulk)
Enough water to cover up 3/4 the meat, one cup at a time
For every cup of water add one beef bouillon cube
Crusty bread or rolls to serve it on

Cook on high for 4 hours, then flip meat over and turn on low for 4 hours.  Pull the meat out and let it rest for about 20 minutes and then shred with a fork, it will just fall apart.  We eat ours with a little shredded cheese on top and  horseradish.  Use the drippings to dip your sandwich in. 

You can also use the drippings (because it makes a lot) for gravy in a different meal!
