IMG_1059This is one of my favorite meals and it is so easy!  I always stock up on roast beef when it comes on sale at Albertsons. This recipe can easily be made for a small or large group! Put it in the crock pot in the morning and 8 hours later you have fall apart, tender meat!

(In this photo I had not added all the water yet, make sure it covers 3/4 of the meat)

In your crock pot add your frozen roast beef, ( any size)

add one package dry italian seasoning salad dressing packet ( about 2 tables spoons if you buy in bulk)

Add enough water to cover up 3/4 the meat, one cup at a time

For every cup of water add one beef bouillon cube

I normal add about 5 cups of water and 5 beef bouillon cubes

IMG_1053Cook on high for 4 hours, then flip meat over and turn on low for 4 hours.  Pull the meat out and let it rest for about 20 minutes and then shred with a fork, it will just fall apart.  We eat ours with a little shredded cheese on top and  horseradish.  Use the drippings to dip your sandwich in.  Enjoy!

This looks soo good. I love french dips and never thought to make them myself. My Husband doesn't care for roast with veggies that much but LOVES dips! I'm going to try to make this tomorrow.

I would love to do this! I've done it before with roast beef sandwich meat, but that can get expensive. What do you consider a good price for roast beef? Thanks!

Yum! I noticed you said "frozen" roast, I am curious if you recommend it to be frozen over fresh? And if using fresh, how long should it be cooked? Thanks!
