French Dip Sandwiches

You are going to LOVE this recipe! It is so easy and tastes so good!! It came from Our Best Bites blog. Here is the recipe:

1 2.5-3 lb. beef roast
2 Tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper
2 1-ounce packages dry onion soup mix
2 c. water
2 cans beef broth
6-8 large buns
Swiss, provolone, or mozzarella cheese, shredded or sliced.

1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat and rub roast with salt and pepper.
2. When very hot, carefully place roast in pan and sear on all sides. You're not cooking the meat, you're just browning it quickly on all sides to add flavor and seal in the juices. I have never done this step before making this recipe and it really does make a difference.
3. Place in crockpot and sprinkle with onions soup mix. Pour water and beef broth over roast.
4. Cook 8-10 hours on low or cook 4-5 hours on high and another 3-4 hours on low. It's done when it starts falling apart.
5. Shred the Roast with a fork, I put it back in for 20-30 mins to soak in the juices.
6. Serve in Rolls or you can broil your bread in the oven with your meat and add cheese. Pour juices in a small bowl for dipping.
It shreds so easy when it's done
Delicious! Don't mind the paper plate (didn't want to do the dishes that day). I didn't picture with cheese, because most all of you know I don't really like cheese and it doesn't need it.
