  • 1 beef roast (3-4lbs)
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix (I use Lipton)
  • 1 packet au jus gravy mix
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 8 sub buns
  • 8 slices provolone cheese


  • Season your roast with salt and pepper.
  • Place roast in bottom of slow cooker.
  • In a small bowl, combine the onion soup mix, Au Jus gravy mix, and beef broth.
  • Pour mixture evenly over roast.
  • Place lid on slow cooker and allow to cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for about 4 hours.
  • Shred meat using two forks.
  • Cut buns in half lengthwise and scoop meat onto bottom slice.
  • Place one piece of provolone cheese on top (I tore the cheese in half and placed the two halves on the bread to cover sandwich better).
  • Turn on your broiler and place sandwiches under broiler for about 2-3 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
  • Place top slice of bread on top to create sandwich.
  • Ladle liquid from slow cooker into small bowls and serve aside sandwiches for dipping.
