Homemade Chicago Italian Beef Sandwich with Giardanarra and Fries
The Italian beef sandwich is a culinary gem that originated in Chicago and has since gained a cult following across the United States. It's a hearty and satisfying creation featuring thinly sliced, seasoned roast beef piled high on a crusty Italian roll and typically served "dipped" or "juicy" – meaning the entire sandwich is dipped in flavorful beef jus or gravy before being served. This soaking not only infuses the bread with savory goodness but also ensures each bite is moist and packed with flavor.
