French Dip is one of the easiest and tastiest ways you can possibly prepare beef in the crockpot. After simmering all day, even a cheap cut of meat is fork-tender and flavorful, and the savory juices, called au jus, are perfect for sopping up with hunks of crusty bread or serving over noodles. You can use the leftovers for a quick and easy beef stew, just add veggies, or drain off all but a cup of the liquid and add sour cream and cream of mushroom soup to make a delicious creamy beef dish to serve over noodles or mashed potatoes.
