Slow Cooker French Dip

Fall is the perfect time to bust out that crock pot and create tasty and simple slow-cooker meals. One of  my favorites is this French Dip recipe.

We make it often in our home on nights that I know soccer will run late. Its warm, filling, simple, and it makes the whole house smell delicious. It is almost completely fool proof, and for busy parents that is the BEST! It is also a fun meal that allows the kids to pick up their food, dip it, dunk it, and pick it apart. I love how it also seems to make my family feel like talking. Suddenly my normally tired and quiet kids want to spill their secrets about their school day, practice, and tell me all about their friends. Because of that this is one of my go-to meals in the fall and I hope it will be in your house too!
