French Dip Sandwiches

Here's a recipe I haven't made in a long time, I mean probably 4-5 years, so let's dust it off and give her a go- eh??

3-4 lbs. of boneless, chuck roast
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 cup beef broth (or one bullion cube + 1 cup water)
1 tsp garlic powder 
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried, crushed rosemary (or a sprig of fresh if you don't have dried)
3-4 whole peppercorns *optional

Directions: Remove fat from roast, place in crock pot. Combine soy sauce, beef broth, and spices and pour over the roast. Add additional water to the crock pot to almost cover the roast (this will become your Au Jus). Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours.  Remove the meat from the crock pot, shred on a separate plate, and then serve on rolls. Use the remaining juice in the crock pot for your Au Jus dipping pleasure! (*if you added fresh rosemary, remember to remove it and throw it way before serving!)

French dip normally can be plain but there are ways of making it more interesting, and will depend on what you have it with. Thanks for this great recipe.
