Dippy Sandwiches-Redone

Every family has their own names for certain well known dishes. They are often named by the youngest members, and our family is no different. When my son was about 3 years old he discovered the French Dip sandwich and decided it was the best sandwich ever. The name was a little hard for him to say, so we have called them "Dippy Sandwiches," ever since. This is a remake inspired by many different but similar dishes--the French dip of course, the Cheese steak sandwich with onions and peppers, slow cooker pot roast, and Italian flavors of basil and oregano. The whole family loved this recipe. I paired it up with potato wedges tossed in olive oil, seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, and seasoning salt then roasted in the oven until crisp and golden.

This makes a lot. I had plenty for my family of five, with enough for the freezer and some for my husbands lunch.

1 Chuck Roast 3-5 lbs (Mine was 3 pounds)
1 cup of water
1/4 cup red wine
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 beef bouillon cube

1 onion
1 pepper (I used orange because it's what I had on hand)

Place meat in your slow cooker, pour in water and wine. Sprinkle all the seasonings on top and place lid on top. Cook 8-10 hours on low.

When you are ready to eat, saute the onion and peppers in oil until soft. Shred the beef, and place on toasted rolls. Top with the onion and pepper mixture. Use the juice left in your slow cooker for dipping your sandwich. Enjoy!
