I made this today! Chicago Italian Beef Sandwiches are a popular regional specialty in Chicago. Here's an authentic recipe and the best places to buy them in Chicago. It is NOT cooked in a slow cooker!
There’s no dish that reminds me of my hometown more than juicy, sloppy Chicago style Italian beef sandwiches. If I had to think of the perfect tailgating food to it’d be those same Italian Beef sandwiches.
A Chicago staple, the Italian beef sandwich combines tender roasted meat with a savory au jus. Dan requested this for his birthday dinner, but being in Texas, it’s hard to come by. We made it ourselves, and it turned out great!
