Low-FODMAP Slow-Cooker French Dip Sandwich Recipe; Gluten-free, Dairy-free

Printer Friendly Version

Simple. Delicious.  Juicy.  Beefy.

Low-FODMAP Slow-Cooker French Dip Sandwiches are AWESOME.

My low-FODMAP recipe for French dip beef sandwiches will satisfy even your pickiest eaters. These are perfect for lunch, dinner or your family pot-luck event!

French Dip Sandwiches are one of my favorite restaurant lunches.  When my kids were small and we didn’t have an evening babysitter, my husband and I would do a ‘date lunch’ at one of the nice restaurants in town.  Instead of a heavy dinner, we would both get a French dip sandwich on a crusty sourdough bun.

I love the moist, tender and flavorful ‘French dip’ beef, with that amazing dip to dunk your bread.  Sooo good.

Low-FODMAP French Dip is great on sourdough baguettes (did you know that wheat sourdough bread is often low-FODMAP if it has been proofed overnight?), or with my low-FODMAP Mutigrain Sandwich Bread, for a gluten-free AND low-FODMAP option.

Serve it with a slice of your favorite Swiss, Cheddar or Provolone cheeses if you like!

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Serves 6

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 9 hours on low or 4-5 hours on high

Total time: 9 hours 15 minutes

Equipment: 5 or 6 quart slow cooker


  • 1 tablespoon garlic infused olive oil
  • One 2 & 1/2 to 3 pound boneless chuck roast, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus additional to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, plus additional to taste
  • 2 cups prepared low-FODMAP beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce (gluten-free, if necessary)
    • 2 tbsp is one low-FODMAP serving
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 6 ‘hoagie-style’ sourdough rolls or your preferred low-FODMAP, gluten-free bread or buns
    • Note: While sourdough may be low in FODMAPs due to the fermentation process of the wheat, it still may contain gluten
  • 6 slices Provolone cheese or your preferred cheese choice (optional)


  • Heat garlic infused oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat
  • Season roast with salt and pepper and cook until seared, about 3 minutes per side
    • I used a cast iron skillet
  • Transfer meat to your slow cooker with the juice from the pan
    • I used a bit of the broth to deglaze my pan
  • Add low-FODMAP beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaf and thyme
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 9 hours or HIGH for 4-5 hours
    • Slow-cookers vary in their temperature, so adjust as needed
  • Taste sauce, and add salt and pepper to taste
  • Shred or slice meat in the crock pot and allow to simmer in the sauce for about 15 minutes
  • Serve on your bun, with sauce on the side (if desired, strain the broth prior to serving in a small bowl next to your sandwich)
  • To toast your bread/cheese (optional):
    • Heat oven to 375 degrees F
    • Slice rolls and place cheese on one side, butter or oil other side, if desired
    • Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 5 minutes, until cheese is nicely melted and edges are toasty

Happy low-FODMAP Dunking!
