This was incredible! Best I've had, outside of the real thing. Tip: I froze in portions for two sandwiches and it was incredibly tough on the reheat. Won't try that again.

Fantastic !!!! Not nearly as hard as it sounds, ONLY thing I done differently was covered during the last part and put it back in the oven instead of messing up another pan.

Fantastic!!! The only thing I did different was covered the pan for the final simmering. Got to KEEP the juice.

I am from Chicago and am currently living in San Diego. This is one of the best Italian Beefs I have ever had! I would definetly make this again. My husband loved it. It was a little taste from home :)

Very good! Hubby really enjoyed it. I put some chunky onions, carrots and celery on the bottom of the pan to give the au jus a little more flavor and I used beef broth instead of water and bullion cubes.

This is great!! I reminds me of a place in St. Paul when I was a kid. I cooked it in a slow cooker for 9 hours, then sliced it and cooked it for 2 more hours. Since I couldn't get any onion powder, I just chopped up an onion and chucked it in. Medal-worthy!!

We made this yesterday and LOVED it! We moved to North Carolina 8 years ago from Chicago. You can't find and Italian Beef here to save your life! This was great! It tastes very similar to the beef in Chicago. We covered the pot when we were simmering and didn't simmer nearly as long as the recipe said. We simmered the sauce first with the bay leaves & fennel seeds with the lid on so that the gravy did not evaporate. Then we put the beef in the sauce and cooked until all the pink was gone. Mmmm Mmmmm Good.
