    Doreen_2's Note:

    Chicago style Italian beef sandwiches. A real favorite among Chicagoan locals. This is one of the best sandwiches that you can eat in Chicago...especially with the giardinara or sweet peppers.

      Oh very yum! I made this today when I didn't want the same old pot roast. I wasn't sure what garlic juice was, so I looked it up. Maaan that stuff is potent. There are tons of uses for it, even bass fishing! I made as directed. I thought the olive oil was a little much, but went along with it. It turned out to be perfect. There was lots of good au jus leftover. My kids even liked this! I sweated some onions, green peppers and mushrooms under some tin foil in my skillet for about 10 minutes. This was perfect. This really couldn't be more simple. Thank you for a great dinner! :)
