Mealthy Tip

Sweet onions lack the sulfuric punch of regular onions. Look for varieties such as Maui Sweets, Vidalia Sweets, Texas Sweet, and Walla Walla Sweets. Best part is, they won't make you cry when you cut them!

I left the onion out. I do not really love onion in sandwiches. Even though they are cooked, I just wasn't confident it would work for my palate. Without the onion, though, this is a delicious French dip. You have to have the right bread, but otherwise, this is a foolproof recipe. Went super-decadent and made fries, too.

This is definitely one of the better french dip recipes I've tried! The beef is so tender, and the au jus is hearty and flavorful. I used one slice of provolone and one slice of Swiss cheese, and French bread for the sandwich. This recipe is perfect for the cold weather days ahead. Can't wait to try again soon!

I really loved these french dip sandwiches. The meat was so easy to prepare in the pressure cooker, I think it took us around 30 or 40 minutes to make everything. We will definitely make these again.

I thought the same. I am a nurse in SC. I love the machine, think some of recipes need a little adjusting here and there. This recipe was incredible. The only thing I changed was I omitted the ready cooked onions and just did another batch because I love sautéed onions. This was by far the very best French dip ever. We are a family of foodies and everyone wanted it the next night as well. I ordered a second pot for my 21 year old son in college, he swims and he and the guys in his apartment on the team love it!

Used a homemade broth and vidalia onions. This was really good. Favorite recipe, reminds me of the French onion soup my mom always makes.

I really enjoyed this recipe! Make sure to season the meat with salt and pepper. I would also use more thyme, for my own personal taste.

Used the bottom round roast. Seasoned with more than just salt and pepper. Did the rest of the recipe as directed. Turned out Great! Timing seemed perfect. The sauce was delicious and the left over beef when cold has a great texture (not as chewy when roasted in the oven) and more roast beef taste. Any good artisan bread will do, just toast it. We did ours open faced. It's a keeper!

Made this the other night and was flavorful and the au jus was fabulous. Had left overs that is just as flavorful and delightful each time I have tasted this. I am looking forward to each of my recipes that I am going to try.

Rob Bishop says:

Amazing! Everyone loved it. Made it exactly how the recipe said to. The dipping juice was so good it could be a soup! For the wine I used a cheap $3 Cabernet Sauvignon and it was perfect!

Outstanding. Very flavorful sandwiches. Had lots of leftovers, heated my leftovers with Little bit of heavy cream to make it more of a stroganoff dish, put it atop some noodles made of a quinoa/rice blend. Absolutely delicious

Meat was not as tender as I would have liked. Broth was a little greasy.

That was a big hit!! Made it exactly to recipe! Texture perfect. Au jus outstanding!

I took a chance and cooked my meat at 30 minutes per pound. Well, it put it over the top! My husband said this was “the meal of the month”!

Good flavor but beef was not as tender - possibly use another cut next time.

This recipe is perfect. I switched some seasonings since I don’t like thyme. I cooked a 4 pound chuck so i increased the cooking time to 60 minutes. The meat literally melted in my mouth.

Jacquie Baker says:

This was rather delicious. I used the obliterated onion and garlic as a spread for the bread. I also made a roasted garlic and horseradish aioli, and it was awesome. Used an old bottle of cab sauv. All around very delicious. I would almost allow the jus to cool and discard the hardened fat, reheat and then serve.

Lorie Swank says:

The meat was tender; however, the au jus had so much fat that it didn’t soak into the bread and diluted the flavor.

Made this tonight. Wow. So easy and delicious. I omitted the onions only because I didn’t have them. Next time I will try with for sure. The flavors all come together nicely when you dip the sandwich in the juice.
