A New Recipe- Hooray!

Isn’t this what everyone looks for on an infidelity blog?  I told you in the beginning this could be many things and recipes might be one of those things.

I love Jamie Cooks It Up.  I have made very few things from her site that haven’t been absolutely amazing.  Today I am going to share her recipe for French Dip sandwiches and let me tell you, this is the best French Dip I have ever eaten.


3-4 lb. beef roast

1 Tbsp. olive oil

Salt & Pepper

(2) 1 oz. packages Lipton Onion Soup mix (in other words, a box)

4 cups hot water

2 beef bouillon cubes (or 2 tsp. beef bouillon granules)

Rolls (she recommends something crusty and hearty)

Swiss, Mozzarella, or Provolone cheese

Softened butter


  1. Heat a large skillet and add your olive oil.  Or, if you have a Ninja crockpot use the stovetop function on it.
  2. Sprinkle the roast with salt and pepper and sear the meat on all sides.
  3. Place the roast in your crockpot.  Sprinkle the onion soup mix on top.
  4. Heat water and dissolve the beef bouillon in it (you could also use 4 cups of beef broth instead).  Pour the bouillon over the roast.
  5. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours.  Shred the meat and place back in the crockpot for the last hour of cooking.
  6. Butter your rolls and heat them.  She recommends a griddle; I stick mine in the oven for about 5-10 minutes with the cheese on them.
  7. Add your meat and ladle out the juice into small dishes for dipping.

Seriously- the best French Dip I’ve ever eaten.  Try this one soon.
