This recipe takes us on a delicious trip to the windy city. There, in the 20th Century, Italian immigrants concocted a sub sandwich of shaved beef smothered in savory sauce and topped with giardiniera (a pickled condiment of peppers, carrots, cauliflower and more). To this day, the savory, zesty sandwich remains a crowd-pleaser—and one of Chicago’s most famous ethnic foods. Our version includes all the classic ingredients, along with a side of roasted potatoes, onion and sweet bell pepper. The result is a hearty, easy-to-make entrée.
