Default REC - Italian Beef Sandwiches (crockpot recipe)

This is a two-day recipe. Cook the beef the first day, refrigerate it
overnight, then cut into very thin slices for serving. For
low-carbing, this stuff is just great, even without the bun.

The Food TV show "The best of..." did a whole show about Chicago eats and
in one segment they showcased "Mr. Beef" where they make the famous
Italian roast beef sandwich. It sure looked like a fun mess o' food!!!
Someday I'll have to try one. See how it holds up to a Philly
cheesesteak!

Don't hesitate, Andy. Make it today, eat it tomorrow. I promise you
won't regret it.

You guys are all gonna be so proud of me! Once, when I made this, I
used two tablespoons of crushed red peppers instead of 2 teaspoons.
OOPS! I ate it anyway. Lived to tell about it, even.

It's a sandwich created and made famous in Chicago, Illinois. Try
making this sometime. It's like a spicy French Dip sandwich (which
probably has no history in France, either).

I'm considering making this for my cook-in in September. We'd use
smaller rolls in that case, though.

If it was created in Chicago, why they call it "italian..."?

Not wishing to impugn your integrity here, Dams, but have you actually
made this with a 5# roast? Five hours doesn't sound like it would get
the job done to tender. Even at high power. It sounds tasty, by the
by.

Yeah, I have. I have a large crockpot. Crash is the Tim Allen of
kitchen appliances. And computers.

You want it tender, but not fall-apart tender, if that makes any
sense. You want to be able to slice it almost paper-thin after
chilling it overnight, so it can't be* too* tender. The thin slicing
makes it easier to eat, too.

Last time I looked for a roast to make this recipe with, they only had
smaller ones, and I would have needed two. And I didn't have $19 to
squander at the time. I'm hoping to find a good sale.

It's really yummy. I use round because I like very lean meat for
sandwiches, and I like large slices. Chuck would work okay, too.
That's what Ariane Jenkins uses.

No. I haven't received any email from you. Do you want to call me? Have you
got Skype?But you must speak slowly because I Am gooder with written english

I wait for your mail, then!
And thank you for this recipe.
Only a question:
If I had not a crockpot, could I use a pressure pot?
And another question: what are crusty rolls? Slices of bread like toast?
thank you

Carol,

Low sodium, low sugar, low cholesterol, low sat. fat. diet of my own
design. Since September 2005 I've lost 50 lbs., giving up almost all my
favorite foods in the process. My goal is 200 lbs. But I'll have to
revise that to 195 so I can try your recipe!

I've become quite an expert on reading nutritional labels and ingredients
lists. *sigh*

And how can you do that? I use Tracfone International for
international long distance, and while it's very very cheap, it ain't
free!

Enquiring minds, Dams, enquiring minds...

I'm not experienced with pressure cookers, so maybe someone else can
answer this. Would the meat be seasoned well enough using this
method?

Crusty rolls are what are probably normal rolls for you. They're
crunchy on the outside and softer on the inside. In the US, most
people seem to prefer soft rolls and breads. It's the foodies who go
for the crisp outsides of bread products.

A bread bun with a decent crust...a chewy crust.

Congratulations! 50 pounds! I have 62 to go, myself. It's nice
looking down and seeing things like toes!

Feel free to ignore the following.

Round roast is extremely lean. The visible fat is trimmed before
cooking. After being cooked in liquid, most remaining fat will be in
said liquid. The roast and liquid are refrigerated separately
overnight. The fat can easily be lifted off the liquid before
serving.

Yes! Perhaps more than with other cooking methods. Because all the juice and
vitamins of meat don't evaporate.

Do you have cable internet and/or TV? I use Vonage (
www.vonage.com),
and get free, unlimited long distance in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico,
Spain, Italy, France, Ireland, and the UK. I can't call someone's
cell phone, but I can call their land line in those places. All of
this only costs $24.99 per month.

Please, please, please, let me send you a referral. If anyone who I
refer signs up, I get two free months' worth of phone service. Fifty
bucks is fifty bucks!

Sure, Dams, send it. I'm not sure I'll sign up, but if I do, you'll
get that referral! But just to point out the obvious, it ain't free
if it's $24.99/month!! :-) Still, it sounds like a pretty good deal.

Crispy. The kind that usually crumble all over the table and your
shirt when you bite into them. You dip the sandwich into the gravy
before taking a bit, and it won't crumble.

Okay, it's not free. <G> But it comes at no additional charge. You
can talk to Pandora all month, non-stop, and it'll still be $24.99.

Carol,

Thanks, and agreed. Although the reducing part is no where near as much
fun as the gaining part was. That's what I got for buying a kitchen-aid
mixer, crock-pot, deep-fryer, convection toaster oven, george foreman
grilling machine (gift) and the allrecipes.com website.

I can't break the no-beef rule, so I ignored your sound reasoning, for
now.

All the best,

Andy

I got a notice from Brinks Security about Vonage, that it cripples the
security system's ability to dial out an alarm to them. I forget the
details.

Spanish, French and German words :-)

Americans are BIG on overstatement. We're rarely cold, we're
"freezing to death". Not hot but "burning up". We're rarely fond of
things, but we often "love them to death" :-)))))


>Sorry, I have Skype and it costs $ 0 per month. It is more free


More free is good :-)))))

I've talked through Yahoo this way. I just prefer to use my actual
telephone, but no one wants me to call them.

I'm not trying to be difficult (just curious), but are you worried that
breaking the no-beef rule would set off cravings? That's how I've become
with carbs*...just the teensiest taste of, say, a cracker...and I
immediately want a huge plate of pasta smothered in marinara! If that's the
case, I commend you on your "don't break the no-beef rule!"

*I had to go off the low-carb diet about a month ago. I've got something
going on with my liver (we don't know what yet, I get the results of the CT
and extra blood tests tomorrow), and it took my appetite with it. Then it
became a matter of "If I can get it down, I'll eat it. The hell with carbs
or fat or whatever." As it is, I'm averaging about 750 calories a day. I
wanted to lose weight, but not this much! LOL.

Congratulations on the weight loss, Andy. And kids, please don't try my
method at home!

LOL - because it's only famous in the US, Pandora! Specifically in Chicago.
As Damsel says, it's absolutely heaven done right, and I can't wait to try
her recipe!

I guess it would be more correct to call it "Italian-American Roast Beef",
but if you've ever met Italians from Chicago...well, they tend to whisper
the "American" part.
