This easy to make Beef Dip features beautiful Alberta beef, slow cooked to perfection.
The province has over four and a half million head of cattle, compared to the population of roughly 3.931 million people we are outnumbered by cattle. Agriculture has a significant position in the province’s economy with 44% of all Canadian beef being produced in Alberta!
Alberta is the largest cattle producing province in Canada. We export 35% of our beef to the United States and other countries.
It is extremely versatile, and you can prepare it 1000 different ways.
- 1 beef roast
- 2 cups of water
- ½ cup of soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning
- 1 tablespoon of dry onion flakes
- 1 tablespoon of granulated garlic
- pepper to taste
- 2 bay leaves
- Place roast in a slow cooker.
- Add the water, soy sauce and seasonings.
- Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours or until the beef is fork tender.

This Beef Dip is incredibly easy to make and will become a family favourite. The rich beefy flavour creates an impressive sandwich that will demand seconds!
With the slow cooker doing all the work it is an easy workday meal that comes together quickly.
Once the beef is cooked remove from the cooker and allow it to rest. It can be sliced or shredded for the sandwiches. Using a fine mesh strainer, strain the jus and portion it out in bowls for dipping.
Crusty rolls are the perfect vehicle for the beef and whatever topping you enjoy. And any leftovers make incredible Paninis the next day.

I love cooking beef. We buy half a steer about once a year. Swap out the soy sauce for tamari (gluten free) and I’m all over this recipe!
So I just did a quick google of tamari and it sounds pretty good. I am going to have to look for it at the store. This flavor of the beef is just fantastic and the leftovers are just as good.
Thanks for stopping by!
My husband is a huge beef fan. He’d adore this recipe with the tamari and onions. I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy beef and this is going on the list!
Even though the ingredient list for this one is short, it packs some amazing flavors. I am sure he will love it.
Being a kid from Ontario I had never heard of Beef Dip until I lived in Calgary. It is one of those dishes that is found all over!
Hi Valerie, It really is one of those dishes that is found all over. I have been making them at home only in the past few years. Once you have a fantastic recipe it fast becomes a family favorite.
My uncle has a farm with organic crops and cattle and I love going out there to see the calves (cause all baby animals are super cute). I also love having fresh (Saskatchewan) beef at my disposal! Your beef dip looks fabulous, too. It’s my mom’s favorite dish, so I’ll have to give this a try ?
It is a fantastic recipe that may family loves. Let me know if you try it!
I had no idea that so much beef was raised in Alberta. (This project has been a great way to learn all sorts of interesting food facts.) Lovely variety of beef recipes features. How to choose?
I had my first beef dip in Calgary when I moved there in the ’80’s. Before it was an unknown enity to this eastern gal.
Here I am… have been by before, but didn’t take the time to comment. Dad loves his beef dip – as do I…. but it is not easy to get a delectable beef jus… you have to roast the bones or cook one roast into leather to get a great jus… and then, there is never enough. How do you solve this problem? Do you have a favourite butcher, farmer, kind of beef/cow?

And my garlic stuffed prime rib would have to be my quintessential at home Sunday dinner to-die-for recipe… but, then there are steaks on the grrrrillll!
