This is one of my family’s all time favorite recipes.  I LOVE this meal because it is so easy to make {like crock-pot easy!} and it is soooo tasty.


3lb roast

2 cans of beef broth

1/2 cup of water

1/2 cup of soy sauce

1 tsp of thyme

1 tsp of rosemary

1 bay leaf

2 cloves of garlic, minced

5 peppercorns


Combine all ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low until meat is tender {about 5-7 hours}.  About an hour before you plan to serve your sandwiches take out enough liquid for your dipping sauce.  Make sure to strain out the bay leaf and peppercorns! Cool your aus jus in the fridge and then remove right before serving. You will need  to skim off the thin layer of fat that will have formed on top {thus the reason for cooling it in the fridge!!}

Place shredded roast meat on a hoagie and top with a few slices of swiss.  I like to toast mine in the toaster oven to get the cheese all nice and melted.  Heat aus jus and serve with your sandwiches.
