Cooking with Pinterest

First off I signed up for Bloglovin like everyone else it seems. I am sad that google reader is leaving. I loved how easy it was. I will continue to use it until July!

Moving on...

Earlier this week I made Crock pot French Dip Sandwiches. This was actually the second time I've made this recipe. I did make a few changes and overall we liked it better than the first time, which was also good by the way!

What you'll need (original recipe):
2-3 lb oven roast
2 cans beef broth (about 4 cups)
2 pkgs Lipton Onion Soup Mix    ** see note**
Sub Rolls
provolone cheese slices

Put oven roast in crock pot. Add beef broth and soup mix. Cook on low 7-8 hours. Shred roast with a fork, and return shredded beef to crock pot for a few more minutes. Slice open bread, and place a good amount of beef on one side, top beef with cheese slices. Broil open sandwich in oven for a few minutes, until the cheese gets melted and bubbly. Remove from oven, and serve with a ladle of au-jus left in crock pot.

The above is the original recipe. Here's what I changed and why. First of all, 2 packs of onion soup mix made it really salty to me so I used one the second time I made it. Next, I chopped a small onion and added it directly to the crockpot. I also added some minced garlic, some dried italian seasoning, and a couple dashes of worcheshire sauce. All of these seemed to give it really good flavor and like I said before the juice wasn't crazy salty like it was before. My husband really likes this and so did a friend of ours how was over the day we had the leftovers. Any  recipe that tastes better or as good on leftover day is pretty good in my book!
