Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches~

We made this for dinner last night, and boy were they good!  Super simple and perfect for a crazy weeknight.

French Dip Sandwiches (recipe found in Simply Gluten Free Magazine)

Serves 4

2 TBS butter
2 lbs beef strips
1 medium yellow onion, peeled and sliced into rings
3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped (I let the jar do the work for me ;-)
2 tsp granulated white sugar
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
3 C beef broth
1 (12 oz) bottle of gluten-free beer
1/4 C sherry
1 tsp gluten-free Worcestershire sauce
4 soft gluten-free sandwich rolls, toasted (we used Udi's French Bread and cut the loaves in half)
4 slices provolone or Swiss cheese

Use a 6-quart slow cooker. Put the butter into the bottom of the slow cooker and turn on.  Swirl the meat, onion rings, and garlic around in the melting butter.  Add the sugar and pepper.  Then stir in the broth, beer, sherry and Worcestershire sauce.

Cover and cook on low for 7 hours or until the meat is tender to bite and has begun to lose shape and fall apart.  Serve on gluten-free toasted soft rolls with slices of provolone or Swiss cheese. (we put the mixture on one half of the bread, topped with the cheese and toasted to melt the cheese). Dip sandwiches into the accumulated broth for a tradional French Dip Sandwich experience.

I want to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers regarding yesterday's post.  It is comforting to know so many are praying for a good outcome tomorrow.
