Last year, Joe and I were returning from vacation and had a layover in Chicago. We were hungry, and he had been telling me about this eatery in the airport that had the BEST Italian beef sandwiches. So, we ordered up our food, he the Italian beef, and I my usual~grilled chicken. Our food came, and was I ever sorry that I didn’t order what he did. It was the most delicious, hearty sandwich I think I have ever seen or tasted. Of course he obliged when I asked for a bite and the second it hit my mouth, I think my taste buds exploded. It was so good and hearty, and the flavor was just out of this world. This recipe is easy because you throw it all in a crock pot, and walk away for 8 hours. The one ingredient that makes it so fabulous, aside from the banana peppers, is the Hot Giardiniera. It’s a delicious combination of carrots, cauliflower, celery, gherkins and Serrano peppers, all bathing in a tangy mixture of vinegar and spices. Yum!! Throw that in with the roast, beef broth and zesty italian mix, and you have yourself an easy delicious meal! Add provolone cheese and a hoagie bun and be ready to enjoy to your hearts content! And a side note, they taste even better on day two!
