Tender beef and melty cheese in a toasted hoagie roll, dipped in rich, beefy au jus- French dip is a comfort food classic.  What could possibly be better?  Spicy French dip, of course!  Slow cooking beef in a mixture of Swanson® Spicy Beef Broth, Worcestershire, onion and garlic is the secret.  The broth adds a layer of heat and spice that perfectly balances the richness of the beef.  Split the rolls, top with slices of provolone cheese and bake until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted.  Top with the beef and onion mixture and reserve the broth mixture for dipping.  Spicy Slow Cooker French Dip Sandwiches with Provolone- so delicious!
