Itailan beef sandwich

In chicago we have a sandwich called a Itailan beef, this is like a french dip but the beef already has the juice on it. It is usually served with sweet or hot peppers. Where else do they serve this great sandwich.

I'd say they serve this sandwich many places. I make them at home too - it makes for a really good meal

I lived in Des Moines Ia for many years and it has a very large Italian presence there and the Italian beef I remember is like a french dip but the Au Jus is seasoned with basil, oregano, and a little Anise or Fennel. and the beef is seasoned with the same herbs before roasting and it is super good 5 stars

I've not found them outside of the Chicago tri-state area. When I mention it, people always say "Italian what??"

Gee, I thought Italian Beef was everywhere! I make it at home quite often.

Just throw a chuck roast in the crock-pot with a beer and a packet of dry Italian dressing mix, and let it cook until it's falling apart. Serve on a hoagie bun with pepperoncini on the side.

Not around me either, and Erie has its fair share of Italians. Just look at our politicians for the last hundred years
Chalk up another one for my area being food deprived
But then, maybe we would also need a sandwich shop or deli to get one of these...... Still, it's not offered in any of the Italian bar/restaurants.

You may not have Italian Beef, but you're close to the home of the Cheesesteak. The hands down best cheesesteak i've had has come from Philly- though every now and again you'll see it on a menu elsewhere.
