My daughters have declared that they just LOVE pot roast. And Sunday is the day for pot roast around here. I’ve been cooking a roast every Sunday for the last 2 1/2 months. This week we had a lovely 80 degree day, so a heavy meal of pot roast and potatoes just didn’t sound right. So, I decided I would make French Dip Sandwiches with my “Secret Ingredient AuJu” These were amazing and my husband had seconds. My girls are calling them pot roast sandwiches, and Verity wants one in her lunch tomorrow.
When you are choosing a roast at the store, make sure you pick a really ugly chuck roast. The uglier, the more tender it will be. I served the tender meat on Demi French Baguettes. I found them in the bakery aisle and they worked perfect. Top these with provolone cheese and you are all set. The Au Ju is so easy to make and has an ingredient you wouldn’t guess. I make my Au Ju after taking the meat out of the crock pot and just let it sit in the crock and heat. This is a very fast dinner to put together since the roast cooks all day. Just 15 minutes to get it all on the table.
