Slow Cooker Tri Tip French Dip

Rosemary Garlic Tri Tip is slow cooked in a crock pot. It’s then shredded and served on Rosemary Focaccia Bread with au jus to create this scrumptious French Dip sandwich recipe!

It only takes about 20 minutes of hands-on time to prepare this easy tri tip recipe. The crock pot will do the rest of the work for you! Serve this sandwich with a side of Rosemary Garlic Sweet Potato Fries or Rosemary Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes.

Shredded tri tip sandwich on plate with fresh rosemary

Hello juicy flavorful beef, layered with creamy horseradish and melty cheese! Let’s toss you in the middle of some crispy rosemary focaccia bread and dip you in some warm au jus! You down? I thought so!!

Seriously this sandwich beats out all of the other sandwiches. And it’s super easy to make!  The slow cooked tri tip starts off the sandwich party.

Simply toss a tri tip in the crock pot with fresh rosemary, garlic, onion, salt and pepper. Pour in some beef broth and Worcestershire sauce, then let it do it’s thing!

Once the tri tip has cooked all day in the crock pot, (and made your house smell amazing!) shred the beef apart. Place the beef on a rosemary focaccia roll, then top with horseradish cheddar cheese or swiss cheese and some creamy horseradish.

Dip out some of the delicious broth, or as the french call it “Au Jus”, from the crock pot to serve on the side for dipping. And just like that, you have created the best sandwich ever!

Today’s post is sponsored by my friends at California Avocados!

For years now, I’ve been making avocado toast, topped with eggs. Well today I’m introducing you to a GAME CHANGER!

I combined the egg and avocado into a deliciously fresh avocado egg salad. I then put that right on top of the toast! So easy, so light and so flavorful!

If you love egg salad, you’re really going to love this version with avocado! I like to make a big batch of the salad on Sunday or Monday. I put it on toast for breakfast or lunch throughout the week. It’s easy to make ahead of time and great for meal prepping!

Everything bagel seasoning and an extra drizzle of lemon juice on top really takes this egg salad toast over the top! I like to pick up a bottle of Everything Bagel Seasoning at Trader Joe’s.

If you don’t have a TJ’s near, you can easily mix up the seasoning at home. Two Peas and Their Pod has a great Everything Bagel Seasoning recipe that’s easy to make in 5 minutes! You can also add a little sea salt and pepper on top if you don’t have everything bagel seasoning.

Fresh California avocados + fresh herbs + fresh lemon juice = an egg salad recipe that’s bursting with flavor and filled with healthy ingredients!

Caprese Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Chicken breasts are tossed in a basil pesto marinade, then grilled to perfection and topped with grilled tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese in this easy, healthy & totally delicious grilled chicken sandwich recipe!

Pair it with a glass of Grilled Strawberry Lemonade and finish the meal with Grilled Berry S’Mores for a seriously scrumptious meal on the grill!

Grilled chicken sandwich with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese on white plate

Chicken is one of my favorite things to toss on the grill! From chicken skewers, like these popular Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers, to meatballs, like these Caribbean Jerk Chicken Meatballs. There’s also the option of marinating chicken breasts and tossing them right on the grill, which is what I did in this recipe!

The marinade for this recipe is basil pesto. It’s easy to make my homemade version or just pick up a jar at the store. If you’re buying store-bought, I highly recommend looking in the refrigerator near the deli section of the grocery store.

You can usually find fresh, refrigerated pesto in this section that’s much better than the stuff in jars near the pasta sauce. Some grocery stores even make their own pesto fresh daily!

After tossing the chicken in the pesto, simply grill it up, then top it with grilled tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese. Place it on a bun with more pesto and fresh basil leaves and you’ve got a seriously delicious grilled chicken sandwich in just about 30 minutes!

Rosemary Focaccia Bread

Baking homemade rosemary focaccia bread is easy, fun and delicious! This Italian bread recipe can be served as a side or appetizer. Or slice it up to make a delicious sandwich!

There’s really nothing better than the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven!

I love to bake up a couple loaves of rosemary focaccia bread on the weekend. One is served with Sunday family dinner, usually with Beef Ragu or Creamy Tortellini Soup.

And I save the other loaf for making sandwiches throughout the week. I mean, you could eat Rosemary Tri Tip French Dip Sandwiches on another type of bread. But why would you want to?

My Dad has been making this easy focaccia bread recipe for years. He always makes extra loaves to share with coworkers, friends and neighbors. It’s one of the most requested recipes he makes. Well, that and his Famous Captain Crunch Fried Chicken, of course!

All Star Buffalo Cheesesteak and Hell Fries, Oh My!

Boston, Cambridge, Sandwich, Bar, All Star, Massachusetts, Front, Sign

After discovering Boston Magazine’s article on the amazing Grillo’s Pickles, I went on past the article I originally attended to read on the best burgers in Boston and continued on to the best fries in Boston.

Just 2 blocks down from Grillo’s was one of Boston’s best french fry spots. This spot was the All Star Sandwich Bar where they’re serving up delicious fried potatoes known as Hell Fries.

These cayenne pepper, cilantro and hot sauce topped fries live up to their hellish name. Order an extra ice-cold beverage on the side, you’re gonna need it!

Spicy, French Fries, All Star, Sandwich, Bar, Boston, Cayenne Pepper

Although I am a glutton for delicious, spicy potatoes, I knew I shouldn’t lunch on them alone. I decided to take a peak over at the sandwich menu,  I mean the name of the spot is All Star Sandwich Bar, they must make some pretty killer sandwiches. And do they ever.

I wanted to try one of each! Fried Poblano Cheeseburger, BBQ Fried Chicken Bacon Melt, American Fondue Cheeseburger, how would I pick just one?

Upon the recommendation from my excellent server Brad and my crazy obsessive love for Buffalo sauce I went with the Funky Daily Special Buffalo Cheesesteak BLT. Say what?  A sandwich with multiple meats, blue cheese and buffalo sauce, I’m so in!

Buffalo, Cheesesteak, BLT, All Star, Sandwich, Bar, Boston, Blue Cheese, Sauce

I really can not express the excitement and anticipation that overcame me when this sandwich arrived!

And the anticipation was met with overwhelming joy after just one bite.  Crispy bacon, juicy burger, creamy blue cheese and spicy buffalo sauce, quite the perfect combination and balance of amazingness!

They have tons of daily specials that I wish I had more time in Boston to try each one!

If you’re in Boston, check out your favorite daily special and let me know which you think is the best!

I’m thinking Wednesday’s Pastrami-Nater sounds right up my alley! I do have a slight obsession with the almighty pastrami sandwich though!

The decor in this little sandwich shop is cool and casual and the service was excellent. See Brad, awesome server, hard at work!

If you want to break a little sweat with some Hell Fries or chow down on an amazing sandwich special check out All Star Sandwich Bar at 1245 Cambridge St. Cambridge, MA.  To view their entire menu visit their website at: AllStarSandwichBar.

The Mile High Pastrami Sandwich

When I set off to Houston, Texas for the next stop on my Summer Adventure Travel Schedule, I went to Twitter to find out where I should eat while I was in town!

The producer of one of my favorite Food Network shows, Diners, Drive Ins and Dives, replied to my tweet to Guy Fieri about where to eat.

He gave me several great recommendations and started a serious Twit-versation!

My favorite of their recommendations I visited was Kenny and Ziggy’s.

A New York style Delicatessen right in the heart of Houston, boosting the best pastrami sandwich I’ve ever had!

I created my own sandwich with half pastrami and half turkey. I spread a little Russian Dressing on top and that was all this mountain of meat needed!

My Dad got the #1 half pastrami, half corned beef, swiss cheese, cole slaw and russian dressing. He let me snag a bite and it was also a killer choice!

My Mom had the roast beef with au jus and sweet potato fries.  Her sandwich was good but the sweet potato fries were awesome!

I find that sweet potato fries can end up soggy and not as crisp as traditional fries, but these were more like sweet potato strings, thin, crisp and delicious!

Nana got the Reuben.  Looks like she liked it!

Guess it runs in the family…

That was just the beginning!  Half way done…

I couldn’t stop there, the rest of that sandwich of meaty deliciousness was staring me down! Then this happened…

Yup, that entire monstrosity of a sandwich was gone! Little girl, big appetite strikes again!

Thanks to the Match Cut Crew for their tweet on this amazing spot!  Will definitely be back next time I’m in town!
