Chicago Italian Beef Sandwich

These Chicago Italian Beef Sandwiches are a messy, hearty, insanely delicious meal. 

They’re made of toasted hoagie rolls that are layered with thin slices of slow-braised beef, juicy peppers, and pickled veggies.


- Italian Seasoning - Sea salt - Black pepper - Cayenne - Paprika - Red chili flakes - Beef top - Bacon fat - Yellow onions - Garlic - Red wine - Worcestershire sauce


Mix the spices, Italian seasoning through red chili flakes in a bowl. Coat the beef round with the spice mix evenly. 

Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours to overnight. When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 275.

In a braiser, heat the bacon fat over medium high heat and brown beef on all sides, about 15 minutes total. Add the onions and cook for another 5 minutes, until tender.

Add the garlic and cook one minute longer. Finally, add the wine, Worcestershire, beef stock, and bay leaves. Deglaze the pan and transfer to oven to finish cooking.
