Chicago-Inspired Italian Beef Sandwich
This video shows you how to make a simple Chicago-style Italian beef sandwich. This version uses stew beef instead of sliced roast beef, which might cause native Chicagoans to go berserk. But that’s OK, because this sandwich is delicious, if not 100-percent authentic! You’ll stew the beef with lots of sliced garlic, red pepper flakes, and herbs in chicken broth and a little vinegar. Serve the tender beef and meaty, garlicky broth on crusty rolls topped with chopped pickled vegetables (Giardiniera).
