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.
