Holiday baking is fun. It gives me a theme to focus on. But even within that theme, there are so many possibilities, from sweet to savory and everything in between. All meals can be covered. I’ve never truly celebrated many of the smaller holidays. They basically existed in my life as school holidays. Parties, celebrations and observances made.

St Patrick’s Day screams many things to me. Green. Rainbows. Leprechauns. Green beer even? All of the fun and silly things. But when it comes to the food… oh, the food! So many tasty options. Bread. Stew. Potatoes. Guinness. Bailey’s. And yes, mint. I love it all.

I’ll try to cover many of those options over the next few weeks, but for now…

Slow cooker Guinness shredded beef French dip sandwiches… on Italian loaves (oops!) because you use what you can find locally, if you’re not up for making it yourself! A roll is a roll. It’s the lesser important part in this recipe. The important part being the beef… and Guinness.

Chuck roast rubbed with seasonings and slow cooked with beer and broth. The result is a super tender and flavorful shredded beef, perfect for sandwiches and much more!

Pack a roll full of freshly shredded beef, top it off with cheese (if desired) and serve with reserved cooking juices. These slow cooker Guinness French dip sandwiches are a must make!

    Oh, Rachel, you are speaking my language with this sandwich! My husband writes a beer blog and he has been encouraging me to cook more with beer. This is going on my “to-make” list. Thank you!
