One of our favorite slow cooker meals, these Gluten-free French Dip Sandwiches make for a hearty, filling dinner! Pull out your Crock pot for this easy gluten-free dinner!
There are few things as satisfying as walking in the door at 4:30-5:00 and smelling a delicious dinner that has cooked all day in the CrockPot. It just puts me in a good mood! I love meals like these gluten-free French Dip sandwiches that are super easy to prepare and serve, taste great, and are hearty.
This beef roast slow cooks all day in a simple broth/water mixture, and leave you with a flavorful au jus for dipping the French Dip sandwiches in! So good! I have one kid that won’t dip his in au jus, but he loves to just dip his in BBQ sauce instead.
I originally shared this recipe in April 2013, during my first 6 months of blogging! I’ve updated the pics, text, recommendations, and recipe a bit today! I don’t want you to miss this tried and true meal that my family devoured again last week! It’s always a hit with my family!
This meal is also very freezer friendly. After we enjoy the meal one night for dinner, if we won’t be having leftovers the next night, I freeze the rest of the meat in the juices in a good Rubbermaid container. It reheats very well to enjoy another night, so really, you are getting TWO easy meals out of this!
Everyone knows it can be a little more expensive to eat gluten-free. One of the ways I save money is by stocking up on meat when there is a good sale, and loading up my freezer full of it. I recently found a great sale on beef roasts and bought 3 for my freezer. I’m not really stuck on using a certain cut, but I always use boneless beef roasts: chuck roasts, rump roasts, bottom round, etc.
We already enjoyed one roast in our gluten-free Slow Cooker Pot Roast, and enjoyed a second roast in today’s yummy recipe for these gluten-free French Dip sandwiches. I’m thinking I’ll use the third roast to make shredded beef for tacos or enchiladas.
Notes about ingredients and substitutions for these gluten-free French Dip Sandwiches:
- Soy sauce: I always use San-J’s Gluten-free Tamari Sauce (buy here at Amazon). It is certified gluten-free and easy to find in my area at regular grocery stores like Fred Meyer and Albertsons. If you’d like to buy a big jug of it, check out this 64 oz. Sam-J bottle on Amazon! Talk about stocking up!
- Beef bouillon: I use Herb-ox which is clearly labeled gluten-free. It is available as granules or cubes and I find it at my local Winco store, so it should be easy for you to find as well. You can also purchase Herb-on beef bouillon online at Amazon.
- Cheese: You can omit the cheese or use a dairy-free cheese like Daiya and this meal will be dairy-free!
You are probably wondering about the gluten-free rolls to serve the french dip sandwiches on. If you have the pleasure of living near a gluten-free bakery, you might be able to pick up some fresh baked french bread, hoagie rolls, or even hamburger buns to use for these sandwiches.
Alternately, in the gluten-free freezer section of many stores, you can find several brands of pre-baked rolls or baguettes you can use, or you can buy gluten-free hot dog buns. I also don’t mind just picking up Trader Joe’s gluten-free hamburger buns for our French Dip sandwiches.
Wondering what to serve alongside your gluten-free French Dip sandwiches? I like to serve with a fruit side dish like apple grape salad, and some tater tots in the air fryer.
Served au jus, these gluten-free French Dip sandwiches are so flavorful! If you have a picky eater that does not want to try eating the sandwich au jus, they might enjoy eating this as my youngest does: dipping it in ketchup! I guess it’s like a cheeseburger to him!
For dessert, if you have time, make my gluten-free cheesecake. Or if you’re a chocolate lover like I am, make my gluten-free brownies with frosting. Or if you want something lemony, make my gluten-free lemon cookies.
I hope you’ll try these soon!

We don’t have gluten free bouillon at any of the stores around us ????. Is there another alternative?

I am wondering the same thing! I'm thinking of using beef bone broth. I'll use more broth and less water! Anyone else have an opinion on this? I'm not the best cook out there!
