"This makes a delicious French dip sandwich, perfect for the working mom! Nobody, not even teetotalers, have been able to detect the presence of beer in this recipe, but it adds a wonderful flavor! French fries make a great side dish, and they are good for dipping, too."

I have made several times--my teenagers love it. I do make a couple of changes. I add garlic, black pepper, (just a dash) and a couple of tablespoons of Kitchen Bouquet browning sauce. AND a little more salt. Use a heavy beer--no lite stuff-- It REALLY helps the flavor--gives it more depth. After a couple of different cuts of beef, I've found a siroin tip roast to be the best. Also if you let it cool a few minutes before slicing and add back to the juices for a while, it is much more flavorful. I love the buttered rolls with the au jus---melt provolone cheese under the broiler--yum!


This was amazing. I took a lot of advise from others. I used a chuck roast, Campbell’s Consomm√©, a can of Campbell’s French Onion Soup, added garlic powder, onion powder, a touch of worcestershire, and only half a can of beer. It took me 5 minutes to throw everything into the cooker. When I came home I sliced it up and put it back into the juice for another hour. I buttered the rolls and added shredded mozzarella cheese and threw them under the broiler until the cheese melted. This was a huge hit. My family loved it. Not at all dry. They can't wait for me to make it again. Trust me when I tell you this was the best/easiest dinner. You've gotta try it!


Wish I could make it 10 stars!! This recipe tales TIME..to cook, don't rush it! Slice your beef about 1/2 hr before you want to serve it and return it to juice. Wow!!! But wait, the next day take the leftover juice with bits of beef and make French onion soup with it. Serve over the leftover french bread in a bowl with cheese and slip it under the broiler for a minute. The BEST!!
