No Fuss French Dip Sandwiches

I made this a few months back when I was getting back into the slow cooker cooking. As this week has us more busy than usual, I'm busting out the crock pot again. This was a hit with the hubby and kids and couldn't be easier to throw togther. Switch things up and make it your own by maybe adding some bell peppers, different mushrooms, or even the rolls you serve it on. Hope it becomes a staple in your home too.

1 2lb. beef rump roast, I like to slice the roast about 1/4 in. thick before putting in the crock pot. You can leave it whole and then shred at the end too if you prefer.
16 oz. of sliced button mushrooms
1 large white onion, sliced
4 pkgs. of Aus Jus seasoning mix
8 cups of water
2 garlic cloves, smashed
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. black pepper

Put all ingredients in a slow cooker on low for 5 hours. We like to serve ours on steak rolls with some of the cooked onions as well as horseradish. Serve with some fries or salad and your set! We use the sauce in the crock pot for auj jus dipping sauce too. This will make enough for a small army and you may want to half it. I have yet to learn how to make small meals :)
