An Italian beef is a sandwich, originating in Chicago, composed of thin slices of seasoned roast beef, simmered and served au jus on a long Italian-style roll. The sandwich's history dates back at least to the 1930s. The bread itself is, at the diner's preference, often dipped into the jus the meat is cooked in, and the sandwich is typically topped off with Chicago-style giardiniera
We didn't stray far from the original with our Italian Beef Flatbread .
We slow cooked our beef and added some provolone cheese and served au jus on the side .
