Christy Jordan’s Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches

Christy Jordan's Slow Cooker Sandwiches

And my son, the precious baby boy who first made me a mama, is now in high school. As I watch my children grow, I find myself reminiscing over their younger years, but I try to be careful that I don’t miss out on fully reaping the joys of the present. Right now, my children are in a brilliant stage of life, and seeing them discover and carve out a place for themselves in the world is more fulfilling than anything else I’ve ever known. A few days ago, my son walked into the kitchen as I was making supper. He gave me a quick hug and asked, “So Ma, how was your day?” I looked up as he sat down and actually waited for me to answer. At that moment, I realized that this wonderful young man was sharing the harvest from seeds I have sown in his life.

Granddaddy was right. Life really is all about gardening.


  1. I’m looking forward to trying your slow-cooker french dip recipe, but also wanted to say that the recipe coding suggests a roast made of 31 halves (a fraction showing 31 over 2) and 3 medium onions weighing about 11 halves (a fraction showing 11 over 2) instead of what I presume should mean a roast weight 3 and a half pounds and onions weighing about 1 and a half pounds. It’s not a problem – it just seemed really odd for a second when I first read the recipe, but it might be worth correcting. I apologize for contacting you to point out a problem. I like your site and just want to help.
