French Dip Sandwich Recipe on FOX13 The Place

We had a great time chatting about New Years Resolutions, making our favorite French Dip Sandwiches, and a few slow cooker safety tips, too! Be sure to join in all the fun. Watch today’s French Dip Sandwich TV segment, print off the recipe below, and get cooking right along with us! 🙂

Slow Cooker Tips & Tricks

Let’s just have a little talk about our slow cookers here for a minute. . .

As most of you know I’m a graduate of the Culinary School and one of the classes that’s required is Sanitation and Safety. During this class we had an eye-opening chat about slow cookers and how they can be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and pathogens.

  • If not careful they can be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and pathogens.
  • Preheat your crock pot just like you preheat your oven. Plug it in and turn it to the high setting to get it nice and hot from the start for cooking. After all, there is just only one little probe heating the whole slow cooker! 
  • Add everything into the crock pot as warmed up as it can be. To cut down on the getting-the-food-hot portion of cooking, this is where you need to be cautious and make sure it is all hot and up to cooking temperature in 2-3 hours.  
  • If food stays between 41 degrees and 135 degrees for 4 hours, then it has to be thrown out because the bacteria and pathogens have had much too much time to grow and a food borne illness is a likely result.
  • If you add meat; be sure it is thawed and NEVER added frozen. If it’s beef or pork, brown it first.  
  • Add liquids hot ie: like use HOT water or warm up any liquids in the microwave first.
  • Spray the ceramic insert with cooking spray to make clean up a snap! It’ll wipe out easy with no sticking!

Slow Cookers are wonderful things and if we take a couple of quick precautions to keep food safe while using them… they are even better! 🙂
