You'll be sorry you didn't grow up in Chicago, and eat one of those wonderful beef sandwiches from Carm's. This tastes identical. This wonderful recipe came from my sister Linda knowing how homesick I am for Chicago food. Start cooking 18 hours before you want to eat.
In Memory of my son who loved this. As a single Mom I use to combine ingredients that were filling..you know "lots for less". This was the only one that continued on and one of my very favorite meals. Hope it becomes a favorite for your family also. I guarantee you'll return for seconds.
