French Dip-wich

2.5lb Beef Roast, Salt and Peppered. Allow to sit about 20 minutes.
Premix Broth: 2c Beef Broth, 1 Garlic Clove (Minced), 1T Minced Dried Onions, 1tsp Dried Rosemary, 1tsp Dried Thyme, 4T Worcestershire.
Spray Instant Pot with Butter Flavor Cooking Spray. Add Premixed Broth and place in Roast. Pressure cook on high for 45 minutes. (It’s okay if it’s not done. We are simmering it next.)
Remove Meat from Juice, RESERVING the Broth Juice. Cut up Meat. Set aside. Add a drizzle of Olive Oil to skillet. Heat skillet, add 1T Tomato Paste and fry Paste up. Add in Meat and mix around with Paste. Add in 1 Au Jus Packet and mix around. Then, add in 2c Reserved Broth Juice (Use water to reach 2c, if not enough. *See Notes). Bring to boil, then, simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Optional to Melt Provolone on top. Serve on Buns. Dip in excess Juices.

Freezer friendly: Allow to cool some. Freeze. Add to Crock to heat up.

I was making this as a freezer meal for later time eatings. In making the above recipe, it gave me about 3c of Broth Juice reserved from the instant pot. So, I had about 1c Reserved Broth Juice left, outside from the 2c I needed for the French Dip recipe. Instead of tossing it, I used that leftover juice and cooked some Green Beans, from the garden, and Pork Steaks. Just added all to the skillet, and cooked down juices. It was delish.

NOTES: If a more tamed flavor is desired, use desired ratio of Reserved Broth Juice, with Water. Just simmer a lil longer when you mix with Paste and Au Jus. Example: Instead of 2c Reserved Broth Juices, use 1 1/2c Reserved Broth Juice with 1/2c Water.

2lbs of meat I used this time around. Cut into strips about 1/4in thick. Sometimes, I make nuggets. Your choice. They say to cut off the fat. After long periods, it can go rancid. But, we eat this so fast there’s no need to worry about ever getting there.

Add ingredients into a bowl with meat.

Get your hands dirty and mix it well.

Add to ziploc bag and make sure it’s pretty air tight. MARINADE 24hours. Flip and mix around bag around half way through.

Dehydrate 4 hours. Keep in mind, it gets harder as it sits after dehydrating.

Store in airtight container.
