Roasts are great to buy when they are on a good sale. Use them to serve up a handful of meals. This is a great recipe to eat night two of making a roast.

Or you can just plan to make these sandwiches night one. Kids and adults love the juicy and tender beef paired with the savory au jus sauce.

How To Make

Step 1: Start getting your ingredients out and ready. Grab your slow cooker and feel free to place a liner in it for easy cleanup.

Step 2: Place all ingredients in your slow cooker, place lid, and cook for 8 hours on low. Or high for 4-5 hours.

Step 3: Once the roast is done, remove juice and place in a saute pan. You will want to bring to a bowl then drop to simmer and cook for 10 minutes. This is your au jus sauce.

Step 4: Shred your beef, and pile on the roll, top with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes or until melted.

What To Serve With Your Sandwiches

  • Chips
  • Cucumber and Onions
  • Potato Salad
  • Green Salad
  • Etc

This is very versatile so feel free to eat alone or pair with your favorite sides. A lot of times we reach for just chips.

Storing Leftovers

So if you have leftovers, make sure to store the roast in a seperate container. I do add just a bit of juice in their to help keep the meat moist.

Then when you want to make a sandwich, assemble and then reheat. Don’t store your sandwiches pre-made in the fridge as it will sog up the bread.

Can You Freeze Leftover Roast

You can actually freeze your leftover roast. Just place in a freezer container and store for up to three months.

Thaw in the fridge the night before you plan to eat. You can freeze it with the au jus sauce or you can freeze them in different containers if you prefer.
