I’ve only tried French Dip a few times, mostly because they used to be my sister’s favorite and so I could not like them. The ones I did try were not that great though. They were flavorless and kind of boring. These are not like that at all. They are flavorful and just super good.
They are also one of my favorite slow cooker recipes.
And the way I feel about slow cooker recipes, that means it’s one of my favorite all time recipes.
We love sandwiches at our house and these are so yummy and have so much flavor. We use spicy Montreal Steak Seasoning and it gives it just a little kick. And, as usual, my husband uses pepper jack cheese to give it even more of a kick. Either way, they’re delicious and you should give them a try!
