Beef Sandwiches. I have recently been told that beef sandwiches are a relatively local phenomenon. I’m in the Midwest (U.S.) and supposedly if you travel to the East Coast or West Coast and request a beef sandwich, they have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m obviously not very well traveled, or I would know this for myself – but this really shocks me. Beef sandwiches are a staple around here and they are soo delicious!
There’s even two ways to eat/serve them! You can just put some beef on some bread, add a little au jus, and top with either cheese or giardiniera or what ever topping you prefer – – – OR – – – you can go all out and practically drown your sandwich in the au jus (or even dip the whole thing in) – and eat a very messy, but absolutely amazing ooey gooey, savory, beefy delight!
This recipe is one of those fix-it-and-forget it meals that is so easy it’s almost embarrassing to put it in type! The bonus is, it ends up tasting so amazing that we use it for parties all the time and people always want to know who we’ve catered in for the beef!
Crockpot Beef Sandwich with Au Jus
2-3 lb Rump Roast (though basically any style beef roast works well – bottom round, tip round, and eye round are all fine)
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Seasoned Salt
1 tsp White Pepper
3/4 TBSP Oregano
1 TBSP Garlic Powder
1 cup Water
1. Place roast in the bottom of the crockpot and add all of the remaining ingredients on top of it.
2. Cook on low 6-7 hours.
3. THAT’S IT!! Slice up the meat and eat! Enjoy!
The juice in the crock after you’ve cooked the meat is the au jus. Feel free to pour it over the meat, dip your sandwich in, or go all out and dunk your whole sandwich! I promise you won’t be disappointed!
