There I was on a roll for posting everyday and I missed yesterday. Oh well I'm back tonight. Yesterday we had our annual summer fish fry and I was pooped after everyone left and we finished cleaning up.
Our fearless cookers - who did a great job
you can see one of the supervisors in mid throw of a piece of fish into his mouth - important that it be tasted tested along the way to insure good quality control lol. We usually do the cooking lakeside - but dang it was windy yesterday - well today it was as well - anywho the cookers moved it to the driveway where it would be easier and calmer. Fish and food was in abundance as always. I usually have another main dish to go along with the fish and this time it was French Dip sandwiches with au jus - oh my goodness they were good. I didn't get any pictures - in fact these were all I took - but I will include the recipe anyway for them. They were a hit. Thanks LL for the recipe
Today was a bit of a veg day and I spent the afternoon up in the sewing room putzing around and sewed my blocks for the BOM I'm sending out this week.
- French Dip Sandwiches with Au Jus
- 3 1/2 to 4 lb sirloin tip roast
- 2 cups beef broth
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp season salt
- 1 tsp liquid smoke
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 12 hoagie buns
- 12 slices swiss cheese
Place roast in slow cooker. Stir together broth, brown sugar, season salt, liquid smoke and soy sauce. Pour over roast, cover and cook on high for 1 hour and then low for 9 hours. Remove roast from cooker, reserving broth. Shred roast with forks. At this point I also strained the broth to remove anything floating around in it. Place the beef on the hoagie buns and top with the swiss cheese. Serve the warm au jus on the side in little cups to dunk the sammies in
A couple of things I did differently than the recipe is that I buttered and toasted the buns - tops and bottoms and I also put the bottom part of the sandwiches with the meat and cheese under the broiler to melt the cheese. Oh goodness these were good. Give these a whirl you won't be sorry
