Not a traditional French dip recipe, but it is melt-in-your-mouth-tender and moist. Add chipotle mayo if desired.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Let roast come to room temperature, about 1 hour. Season with salt and pepper.

    Advertisement
  • Heat oil in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) on Saute mode. Add roast; sear on all sides until well browned, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from pot.

  • Add more oil if necessary; add onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Pour wine into the pot and bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off the bottom with a wooden spoon.

  • Add roast, beef broth, soy sauce, vinegar, salt, parsley, thyme, and pepper to the pot; stir. Close and lock the lid. Select Meat/Stew function according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 60 minutes.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, at least 20 minutes.

  • Remove roast and transfer to a bowl. Strain broth through a fine-mesh strainer. Skim the fat from the top and add browning sauce. Shred beef using 2 forks and add 1 cup of the broth. Divide remaining broth between individual ramekins.

  • Place provolone cheese on 1/2 of the ciabatta slices and toast all the bread until cheese has melted. Add beef to each sandwich and dip each into broth to serve.

Fantastic recipe for French Dip! Delicious and the au jus is so perfect for french dips. I had to look up what a cross rib roast is as I couldn't find it in the store and used a boneless chuck roast. The meat was perfect flavor wise and so tender following the cook time in this recipe. No more need to buy or make condensed french onion soup for french dips because this is the recipe to make! So spot on to us! The only change I made was omitting the browning sauce because I didn't have any on hand and for only needing 1 tsp I didn't want to make it from scratch. If you're out of browning sauce and don't want to make your own I've read that a dark soy sauce or worcestershire could be used. In the end I tasted the jus and did not feel it needed anything else. At the same token my jus was not as deep/dark in color and the browning sauce would have taken care of the color and added a little extra something flavor wise but no big deal to us as this was the perfect french dip for us! Thanks for the recipe Bren! Read More
