Clean Eating French Dip Sandwiches

It is not always easy as a mom and wife to please both your children and your husband, but these simple sandwiches deliver.  This hearty, healthy and warm sandwich will be a hit in your home on a chilly winter evening.  Serve with a side salad or fresh fruit and you have got a great meal the whole family can dig into!

Clean Eating French Dip Sandwiches

Ingredients

For the beef:
3-4lbs top round roast
2tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1tsp garlic powder
1tbsp Kirkland Organic No-Salt Seasoning
bit of sea salt
bit of black pepper
beef broth

For the onions & peppers:
extra virgin olive oil
2 large yellow onions
2 green bell peppers

For sandwich prep:
1 loaf of sourdough bread
provolone cheese
au jus from the crockpot, add additional worcestershire and sea salt as needed

Directions

First up, haul out your crockpot and turn it on to the warm setting.  Place your roast in the crockpot, top roast with garlic powder, no salt seasoning, sea salt & black pepper.  Add in beef broth to come up both sides of the roast.  Add in 2tbsp worcestershire sauce to the broth. Slice up 1/2 onion and layer on top of the roast.  Let cook on low for 6+ hours.  Beef will be very tender!!  Remove the beef roast from the crockpot and slice the meat.  Now you're ready to make the sandwiches.
                                                     

My favorite bread for a sandwich is sourdough and Boudin's Sourdough, which you can buy at Costco is the best!  No weird ingredients and it toasts fabulous too.  You could use a more traditional french loaf for this recipe as well.

Once you have your toast toasting saut√© your onions and peppers in a pan with olive oil.  Cook until tender.
 

Assemble your sandwiches!  Once my bread was slightly toasted, I measured up my 21 Day Fix red container with meat (my protein), topped it with lots of veggies, 1 slice of provolone and the last piece of bread.  I served it with a side of au jus from the crockpot!!


Heaven on sourdough!!

21 Day Fix/Portion Fix Exchange
1 slice sourdough = 1 yellow container
beef roast = 1 red container
onions & peppers = 1/2 green container
1 slice provolone cheese = 1 blue container
olive oil = 1/2 tsp
