Chicago italian beef sandwiches

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 pounds Beef roast, leftover,
Roasting pan drippings
2 tablespoons Fresh oregano, finely
OR 2 teaspoon dried
Oregano, crushed
1 tablespoon Fresh sweet basil,
Finely chopped
OR 1 teaspoon dried
Basil, crushed
1 teaspoon Whole black peppercorns
½ teaspoon Red pepper, ground (1/2
To 1)
1 tablespoon Fresh parsley, minced
Salt, to taste
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1 Fresh green pepper seeded
slice Into 1/4 inch strips

Thinly slice cooked, roast beef and place in a Dutch oven (or put it back into the same pan in which the beef was roasted). Add enough water to cover. Add remaining ingredients and bring to simmer. After the beef has cooked for awhile, taste and adjust seasonings. Cook about 1 hour. Serve beef only on Italian bread with grilled green peppers and / or giardinera relish. As you serve dip the sandwich in your gravy.

NOTE: If you fix a large roast for dinner, take the leftovers, sliced thinly, and put your Italian Beef on the stove to cook, while you're cleaning up the kitchen. You can cook the Italian Beef in the same pan used for roasting. IF you make brown gravy for your roast beef, remove some of the drippings before you make the gravy and save them for the Italian Beef.
