A delicious and classic beef dip recipe that you can make in your crockpot or slow cooker!
– – – – – –
Beef dip is a quintessential classic comfort food. As a kid, every time we would go out for dinner the first thing I would look for on the menu was beef dip. There is something so delicious about a bun filled with tender meat and onions, dipped in a flavourful au jus. So good.
Even now as an adult I will often order a beef dip…one of the best ones I have ever had was from a little restaurant in Revelstoke, BC called Three Bears. It’s gone now, but I will never forget their beef dip…it was smothered in cooked red peppers, onions and horseradish. When I took my first bite I was MIND BLOWN at the peppers and horseradish, as I only ever had a beef dip served in it’s classic form. Now I can’t eat a beef dip without them.
This recipe is made in the crockpot which I love because I can have dinner pretty much ready by 10 in the morning, and I have all day to let it cook and get all tender and delicious. Then come supper time, all I have to do is shred the meat with a fork, set the table with all of the fixings and dinner is ready.
On a side note I have to tell you how much I love my crockpot…this one is the Breville Risotto Plus. It’s awesome because I can saute the meat right in it before I set it to cook. A crockpot that can saute is the best invention ever, and perfect for recipes like this.
This is a great dinner for any time…weeknights, Sunday dinner, summer, fall or winter. Easy, tasty and healthy!

Recipe tips & tricks:
- These buns would be SO delicious if you toasted them first with the cheese. Slice the buns, then lay them on a cookie sheet with slices of cheese on the open faces, then broil for a few minutes until the cheese is melted. Then add the beef and toppings and enjoy!
- For a deeper, more rich flavour, substitute all consomme for the beef broth.
- Use any leftover beef and broth in a beef barley soup the next day.
I hope you love it!
