Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

I'm SO excited to share this recipe with you guys. I feel like a full-on grown up after making these sandwiches. ;) This is something my mom would make from time to time and I absolutely loved it. I'm new to buying and cooking roasts, but I feel like I'm finally getting the hang of it. My biggest piece of advice is to wait until it's on sale for no more than $2.99/lb. Also if it looks more white than red, it's going to be pretty fatty, and while fat can be a good thing, too much fat is not.
Anyway, back to the sandwiches...these are SO good and the roast comes out fall-apart tender! The toasted buns, Swiss cheese and beef broth complete the package making it a definite winner.
This recipe makes about 6 hearty sandwiches, but you could also make them into sliders to feed a crowd. They're seriously perfect and so easy to make!

6 hoagie buns
6 slices of Swiss cheese

1. Trim the extra fat from the roast and discard. Place roast in a slow cooker.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk soy sauce, beef broth, pepper, rosemary, thyme and garlic powder. 3. Pour mixture over roast. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
4. When fully cooked, pull roast out and shred on a plate.
5. Place all of the hoagies on a baking sheet. Slice hoagies in half and butter both sides. Put Swiss cheese slice on top half of open-faced bun and place under a broiler for 1 minute until cheese is melted. (Make sure to watch closely so the bun doesn’t burn.)
6. Remove and distribute meat on hoagies. Use reserved broth for dipping.
