  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 packet french onion soup mix
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 11.2 oz bottle of beer
  • 2 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 3.5 lb roast rump, eye of round or chuck
  • sliced swiss cheese provolone or mozzarella would also work well
  • French rolls for serving hoagie rolls and slider rolls are also great


  • place roast into bottom of the slow cooker
    3.5 lb roast
  • in a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients and pour over meat
    1 cup beef broth, 1 packet french onion soup mix, 2 cups water, 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, 1 11.2 oz bottle of beer, 2 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  • after at least 7 hours, remove meat and shred. I generally use two forks for this process. If you wont be serving right away, return meat to pot and keep warm in cooking juices.
  • To serve: place meat on thick, crusty rolls and top with a slice of cheese
  • OPTIONAL; preheat oven to 350°
  • Place assembled sandwiches on a baking tray and put in preheated oven just long enough for cheese to melt
  • serve with small bowl or ramekins filled with the au jus (juices) from the original pot for dipping!
