I can’t explain it, but I think food is just better if you can dip it. Veggies, chips, even sandwiches are tastier if there’s something yummy to dunk them in. I’ve had a recipe for a beef dip that you make in the slow cooker in my recipe book forever and yet somehow I had never made it before. I recently rediscovered it and decided to give it a try; it involves beer (which we don’t drink, we’re wine people) but it has a very nice flavour and doesn’t taste like beer at all. It was a winner, all 4 of us loved it!
Easy Slow Cooker Beef Dip
- 4 lbs rump roast
- 1 can beef broth
- 1 can condensed onion soup
- 1 can/bottle beer
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- salt and pepper
- French rolls and butter
- Sliced provolone
- In the slow cooker, combine beef broth, onion soup, beer, Worcestershire and garlic powder. Add the beef and season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Cook on low for about 7 hours.
- Take beef out of slow cooker and shred. Reserve the liquid from the slow cooker for dipping – skim off any fat and ladle into small bowls.
- To assemble: Slice French rolls and butter both cut sides. Top with provolone (we put it on both sides) and broil until the cheese is melted. Top with shredded beef.
The leftovers are amazing for lunch or dinner the next day!
