(We used Cobblestone Mill Bread Rolls: Philly Style Hoagie.)

The great thing about this recipe is that you CAN make it freezer friendly. Cook the roast and slice it into 10 individual servings. Then put each serving along with the juice in a freezer friendly container. When you want a French Dip, simply microwave it while toasting the bread. Add the cheese and it's ready in a minute.
1. Mix together in a slow cooker the beef broth, French onion soup and beer. Then trim visible fat off the rump roast and place it in the slow cooker with the broth. Turn on low and let cook for 7 hours.
2. Once the roast is done, remove it from the slow cooker, cover with a piece of tinfoil and put it on a carving board. Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes before carving to allow the juices to redistribute before cutting.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Split the French rolls and lightly butter them. Bake for approxiately 10 minutes until heated through and lightly browned.
4. Slice the meat on the diagonal (across the grain of the meat) and divide it into 10 servings. Do not use a sawing motion when cutting as you may tear the meat. Press the knife down firmly as you slice. Put each serving on a roll, top with a slice of the provolone cheese and serve the sauce in a small bowl on the side for dipping.
