Mr. Food, I went a head and added your recipe to our website, Mr. Food Italian Beef Sandwich Recipe on ItalianBeef.com! Thanks and keep up the good work!! You ever make any ChicagoStyleHotdog's?

Mr. Food, first off, GREAT job!!! Glad to see that you have put together a nice (quick) recipe for Italian Beef. You should make a note though that a true Italian Beef is not roast beef, it is prepared completely different with many different spices that are typically used on roast beef. If you'd like to see a few versions of how some of the major Chicago players you can check out our website http://www.ItalianBeef.com Thanks again for the recipe and helping get the good ol beef word out!

My family lived in Chicago in the 60s and a street vendor gave my mother a recipe that I still use today. I've tweaked the procedure a little to use a crock pot. I cook my roast beef with Italian seasoning and a lot of rosemary (most important) in a crock pot overnight. The next morning I put the crock in the fridge to harden the fat. When chilled, I scoop off the fat and slice the meat. I reheat the meat in the microwave. Then I saute onions and green peppers on the stove until tender crisp. To assemble the sandwich, I spread open the hoagie bun flat on a plate, layer the sliced beef, onions & green peppers onto the bun, add a couple of slices of provelone cheese on top and put the sandwich under the broiler until cheese is melted & lightly browned. Close the bun and serve. Or you can assemble the sandwich, wrap in foil and keep warm in the oven until serving time.

Hi Bonnie. Could you share the recipe? My spouse lived in Chicago for many years and since moving to the West Coast there is nothing here that comes close to what he had in Chicago.

Bonnie we would love to have your recipe up on our website ItalianBeef.com/Recipes There are famous recipes as well as family, fan submitted etc..

I saut sliced onions and mushrooms until tender to taste. Add either swiss or mozzarella to the open roll and toast lightly, then add broth, beef, onions, mushrooms and more broth. Works for me..

This recipe is really an Oh It's SOOOO Good, I added onions & cheese, it's delicious. Thank You Mr. Food for the recipe. Sincerely, Sleepysnoopy64

This is a GREAT recipe. I made a few changes to fit our tastes...added onion to the green peppers, toasted the buns, and topped off this wonderful sandwich with provolone. We will difinitely make this again!!
