Need a lazy weekend recipe idea? Cook once and eat twice by making two different meals at the same time with this hands-free and scrumptious 2-In-1 Slow Cooker Recipe. Make a delicious Roast Beef Dip With Au Jus for dinner and a Beef Barley Soup for lunch the next day with this easy two meals in one slow cooker recipe.
As a busy, single mom of two hungry children who are not very fond of boring, old leftovers, I like easy and simple meals to prepare that don’t require much fuss and taste delicious too. I use my slow cooker at least 2 to 3 times a week and I am always looking for ways to prepare a few extra meals in advance for days I am just too busy (or lazy) to cook.
I especially like preparing this recipe around the holidays because it frees up more time to spend with my family and well, nothing beats a hearty beef sandwich and a hot bowl of soup on a cold winter’s day.
In the morning, I toss a beef roast into my slow cooker on low for an easy dinner of beef dip with au jus.
Slow Cooker Recipe – Roast Beef Dip With Au Jus
When the roast is done and before we sit down to eat, I toss a couple of cups of chopped veggies and a handful of pearl barley into the au jus. After dinner, I add the leftover roast back into the slow cooker to make a delicious and hearty beef barley soup for the next day.

I like to serve our beef dip sandwiches with a side of au jus for dipping and a green or fruit salad. On nights we need a more filling meal, I like to make oven roasted potato wedges too.
I serve the beef barley soup with a green salad and a slice of buttered bread or a fresh roll.
Did you enjoy this slow cooker recipe idea? What do you prefer? The soup or sandwich? Or both?
