There is nothing more satisfying then a big fat Italian Roast Beef sandwich! There used to be a little place in town we could go order one of these bad boys, and it was actually Chicago Style Roast Beef. Pam’s in University City, the only problem; it was in St. Louis and she had all the Chicago teams on the walls. We didn’t care though. The food was awesome there and we didn’t have to travel all the way to Chicago to get an authentic Chicago style hotdog or an Italian roast beef sandwich!
Sadly Pam’s closed up shop. Never heard if she moved back to Chicago or what, but now we have to make our own Italian Roast Beef sandwiches. I don’t know why this isn’t on more menus… we have the Philly on menus all over town, but after having a real Italian Roast Beef sandwich, you kinda crave one every once in while.
In Chicago they say “the wetter, the better” when it comes to Italian Beef Sandwiches!! And using this recipe, it will most definitely not be dry at all. I mean, look at all those juices!
So after making this amazingly tender Mississippi Pot Roast with Gravy, we decided to turn the leftovers into Italian Roast Beef sandwiches and it hit the spot. Slathered with luscious garlic butter, ooey-gooey provolone cheese, a bit of tang from the giardiniera, and the rich flavors of the roast beef makes this one of my all time favorite sandwiches, right up there with the Mangia Bene Sandwich which is another Italian favorite!
This is so easy to make, even if you don’t have a leftover roast either way it’s sooo yummy!
