Roast Beef Sandwich

I have been super busy these days.  No time to do really anything for fun.  The kids keep me driving pretty much all day but the one thing that had kept me happy is working out in the morning and making sure I have a dinner to eat at night when I get home.  This sandwich is a hit every time and super easy to make.  Take everything from the below picture and put in the crock pot before you leave on low. Minus the bread of course.  I prefer to use a sirloin tip roast and I try to wait as long as I can to throw it all in.  Really it only needs about 5 hours.  All days works fine as well though.

About 30 mins before we eat I cut up some sweet potatoes and toss them with some EVOO and salt and pepper.  Then roast them in the oven at 400 for about 30 mins.  My kids love them.  I never even make regular potatoes anymore.

Then to serve the sandwiches I use banquettes, cut them in half and load them up with meat.  Place a little cheese on top and pop under the broiler till cheese melts.  Along side I use a little of the juice from the cooker.  And that is what we call French Dips.   

( was feeding George the apple sauce when Bryan took the picture so he really wanted to be in it.  Also Elsa is always up for a picture as well so there she is:)
Happy Friday Everyone!


  1. YUUUUUUUM!!!! I seriously need to get a crockpot -- some of my favorite recipes call for one, and clearly they are low maintenance. This recipe sounds amazing---I can't wait to try it:)

    If you're interested I'm giving away a $10 Hawai'i Starbucks Card ( -- at the very least it could get you through your day with an extra skip? haha!!

  2. sweet potatoes are the bomb dot com.
    i've got a similar recipe to this, but i forgot about it. i'll have to put it back into rotation.

  3. I want food now! Haha. Love the PJ's your kids are wearing! Roast beef sandwiches are so good but I never make them. I'm kitchen defunct.
