Today I’m going to teach you how to make Chicago Italian beef sandwiches. This hearty sandwich is guaranteed to fill up any hungry guest.
Hi, I’m Kalen with cooking with Kalen and today we are at Filling Market in Sunny Ohio. A great topper for your Chicago Italian beef are these hot or mild beef, you can find it in the international aisle in the Italian section of your grocery store. It adds great sauciness and heat to pastas and it goes wonderfully at all sandwiches, lets get cooking.l
Hi, I’m Kalen and welcome to cooking with Kalen, today I’m going to teach you the best recipe I got on Chicago, the Chicago Italian beef sandwich. For this recipe you need just a few ingredients, beef broth, some Italian seasonings, kosher and pepper flakes, rare roast beef, some mozzarella, a bagel and hot dried diner as a topping. First step you want to grab a big saucepot and pour in your beef broth and two tablespoons of dried Italian seasoning. If you don’t have dried Italian seasoning, you can always do a tablespoon of dried basil and a tablespoon of dried oregano and then one tablespoon of crushed hard pepper flake depending on how hot you like it.
I always like to add my herbs and spices to cold broths and then bring it up to a boil, that way when the stock starts to boil it will be on the steep so there will be more flavoring in the stock. Once everything’s combined you want to bring it up to high heat, you want to make sure that this comes to a boil. While we’re waiting for the stock to come to a boil, we can start to repair the actual sandwich portion. I always do this on a bagel, you want to cut it lengthwise without cutting it completely through. There you go and then just fold it open like this to the best of your abilities. Once your bread is folded open, you want to shingle your favorite cheese, you can choose between mozzarella or provolone, both of them are very mild.
Once your stock is in a complete boil, you can add your rare roast beef to do this. You want to add it one at a time so that the meat doesn’t stick together, you want to always use rare roast beef with this recipe. The reason being it will finish cooking within the broth, so it will have tons of flavor. You can always find rare roast beef at the deli counter and you just have to ask for it. You only have to let the beef cook for a minute or two, you just want it to be completely brown and full of flavor and finally your last step is just to fold open the bread with the cheese and put beef inside.
Now to serve, you want to slice the bagel into as big as slices as you want. I would say that its about six sandwiches and then right after you cut it, you want to dip the spine of the bread into the broth. And finally serve, I would recommend topping with sautéed peppers or onions or with hot jalapeno which is simply just hot pickled vegetables.
