Juicy slow cooked beef sandwiches, topped with melty swiss cheese and served with a quick au jus sauce!
4 hoagie rolls, sliced lengthwise
8 slices swiss cheese
1 1/2 – 2 pounds beef roast (loin, or shoulder)
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 medium onion, quartered
1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups beef broth/beef stock
6 cups water
Place roast in slow cooker. Sprinkle dried thyme over roast. Add quartered onion (just place the pieces anywhere in the pot).
In a bowl whisk together soy sauce, garlic, bay leaf, pepper, beef stock, and water. Pour into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high 4 hours or on low 8 hours.
When ready to serve, drain juices from the slow cooker and transfer to a serving bowl. Discard onions and bay leaf.
Shred roast with 2 forks. Place shredded beef on sliced hoagie rolls. Top with sliced swiss cheese. Place open under broiler in the oven for about 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve with reserved juices from the roast.
