From a Chicagoan .….. The beef por­tion of this recipe sounds about right, but if you’re going to call it “Chica­go Bears Ital­ian Beef”, you’ve got to serve it Chica­go-style. Ditch the cheese and add sauteed sweet green pep­pers and/or gia­r­da­nara. And the meat juice is NEVER on the side — you have to dip the whole sand­wich in the juice before it’s served.

When you order one, you call it “juicy with hot pep­pers”, and if you don’t live in Chica­go any­more, you can order Portillo’s Beef with a Lou Malmati’s piz­za online, but expect to pay for it! Makes me home­sick. The recipe sounds good though. Might just give it a try, with the gia­r­da­nara. Yum.
