Crock Pot French Dips

My love for french dips didn't come about until after I was married. But now, its one of my favorite dinners! And it's SO easy and cheap! It takes a little time, but it's SO worth it! I usually turn this on before I go to bed on saturday night, and it's perfect when we get home from church.

You Need...
1 beef roast (around 2-3 lbs)
6 cups water
1 packet Au Jus mix
1 TBS garlic powder
3 tsp onion powder
2 Beef Bouillon cubes
Crusty rolls
Cheese
ANOTHER Au Jus packet
1 tsp garlic powder

Combine the top 6 ingredients in a slow cooker, and turn in on to LOW for about 12-13 hours AT LEAST! I promise you, the longer you cook this the better! I tried cooking roasts on high for 5-6 hours forever, and they were tough and dry and not good at all, but cook it on low overnight... and it turns into moist, juicy, yummy, beefy heaven! about an hour before I serve it, I shred the meat and put it back into the juice for the last hour. Make the Au Jus according to the directions and add the garlic powder. Pile meat onto the rolls, add cheese and dip away! We add mustard to ours, but you can get creative and add whatever!
