Tastes just like the sandwich I had in Chicago. Takes awhile, but easy to make and well worth the wait.
My family was salivating for 18 hrs of cooking time, it was well worth the wait. The recipe is perfection as written w/ out changes.
Delicioso!! I was a little nervous about all the giardiniera and pepperoncini, so I only used the 1/2 jar of giardiniera, and I was surprised how mild the flavor was. Also used miscellaneous herbs instead of the salad dressing mix (fresh cilantro, basil and oregano, minced garlic, a whole Vidalia onion, and salt and pepper. I loved the carmelized onion slices with my sandwiches). Hubby loved it, kid ate it. We ate several meals and froze the rest. I've also frozen the meat juices for a future soup base. Tx for the recipe.
We enjoyed this sandwich while we were camping this weekend. I left it in the crockpot all day and it smelled so good. We added a slice of Muenster cheese on top of the meat in the bread (we used Italian sub rolls) and we halved the recipe. Thanks for sharing!
phenomenal! i wish i could eat it on a whole wheat sour dough roll but i have to make due with serving it on a broiled portabella due to gluten issues. this is a new staple food in my house.
We thought this was really good. Even better the next day. Thanks for posting!
I've never had the real thing, but this recipe was great! I didn't have pepperoncini, so I just used a whole jar of banana peppers (with juice). I also added seasoned salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Thanks for a great recipe!
Just tried it. I probably put in a little too much pepperoncini and giardiniera and used the wrong type of bread. It tasted pretty good, but I just came back from a trip from chicago (I grew up there) and this recipe is nothing like the real thing. This tastes more like spicy pepper pot roast to me. I cooked a 4.5 roast 14 hours but the meat tasted dry even with they juices. When I taste the real thing, the meat is actually juicy. Maybe I should have cooled the roast so I could slice it.
This makes an excellent sandwich. We devoured them!
