Chicago-Style Italian Beef Sandwiches
For authentic Chicago-style sandwiches, the secret is in the spice.
Why This Recipe Works
Ask Chicago transplants what they miss most about their home city and it’s a good bet the list will include spicy Italian beef sandwiches, which we made using leftovers from our Chicago-Style Italian Roast Beef. We thinly sliced the leftover roast and heated the slices and the jus together to marry their flavors. Pickled vegetables (giardiniera) mixed with a little mayonnaise made an appropriate and authentic condiment for our Chicago-Style Italian Beef Sandwiches. Adding just a bit of the seasoned brine from the giardiniera bottle lent our Chicago-Style Italian Beef Sandwiches recipe a little extra bite.
