Reviews for Italian Beef on Rolls
Sort By :
Going to school South of Chicago, I have a different recipe for Italian Beef. Take a round roast (the restaurants use the entire "steamship" round, and lace it liberally with garlic slivers, then cover liberally with ground mace, then with dried oregano leaves and add cracked red pepper (about 2 ts for a 4 lb roast). Bake in a baking bag until tender, slice and put in a pot with the juices from the baking bag, ad enough water just to cover, and simmer for 1/2 hour covered. Check salt and serve on torpedo rolls with peperoncini on the side. Just like the restaurants serve, enjoy.
