French Dips with Carmelized Onions (Slowcooker)

I've been trying to use my crockpot and instant pot more to help with dinners on the days I work. I had been craving a good french dip sandwich and decided french dip and slowcooker were a perfect match. I did grill the onions after to get them nice and carmelized! But a few extra minutes of prep is worth it! And as always make sure you get some good bread to put it on! You don't want to waste delicious meat on cheap bread ;)

French Dip with Carmelized Onions


4 lb. beef roast

salt and pepper

1 T. garlic powder

2 cans french onion soup

1 can beef consumme

1/2 cup apple juice

2 tsp bouillion (to taste)


1 lg. sweet onion (sliced)

1 tsp. sugar

1 T. butter

splash of apple juice

Sandwich fixin's:

Provolone slices


mayo (we like chipotle mayo with this!)- optional


Rub roast with salt, pepper and garlic powder and place in crock pot. Add soups, consumme, and apple juice to slow cooker. Cook on high for 7-8 hours on high or 4-5 on low. Remove meat from crockpot and shred in a 9x13 baking dish. Broil on high for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, add the bouillion to the au jus in crockpot as needed. In a medium pan, saute sliced onions in butter until tender. Add sugar and juice and continue cooking for about 30 seconds until carmelized.

Serve shredded roast on hoagies and top with onions, provolone and mayo if desired.
