  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-3 pounds beef chuck roast
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 (14 ounce) can low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 (14 ounce) can French onion soup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 French rolls
  • 6 slices provolone cheese


  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Season roast with salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, and garlic powder. Place roast in pan and sear on all sides until browned, about 1-2 minutes per side (this will help lock in flavor and juices).
  • Transfer roast to slow cooker. Add beef broth, french onion soup, and Worcestershire sauce. Gently stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-6 hours, until roast shred easily with a fork. Transfer roast to cutting board and shred.
  • Fill each roll with beef and top with one slice of provolone cheese. Place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and rolls are slightly toasted. Strain juices from the slow cooker and serve with sandwiches as au jus for dipping.


  • Use a slow cooker liner for easy clean-up.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to four days.
  • If freezing, place the beef and au jus in separate, freezer-safe container and freeze for up to four months.
