How to Eat a Real Italian Beef Sandwich

The best thing about a traditional Italian beef sandwich is that it is always on the menu.

A traditional Italian steak sandwich is not only delicious but a bit on the pricey side.

In fact, the cost of an authentic Italian beef roast is usually around $15, according to The Atlantic.

That means you’d be better off getting a whole roast instead of a slab of steaks.

But, a whole Italian beef is a good thing.

A slice of steak with a few sides.

A few pappardelle mushrooms.

A nice little side dish.

But not a whole steak.

Here are three simple ways to make an authentic traditional Italian meat sandwich.

1.

Cut the meat into smaller pieces.

The slices of meat can be cut into bite-size pieces.

And that’s really all you need.

A little goes a long way.

So, take a steak, slice it into bite size pieces, then slice it again into larger pieces.

When the slices are smaller, the beef will taste even more tender and juicy.

2.

Make a sauce with Italian seasoning.

There are several ways to use Italian seasoning in an Italian meat loaf.

You can use fresh basil, olive oil, and fresh herbs like parsley or basil.

You could also add some Italian seasoning to your breadcrumbs or toast the bread for a crispy crust.

And, if you have extra beef, you can even cook it over low heat to make a more savory meat loaf recipe.

3.

Add some cheese.

For an authentic classic Italian beef, add a bit of cream cheese to your meat.

You may even add a dash of red pepper flakes.

But be careful: too much cream cheese will cause the meat to be too salty and will give the meat a crunchy crust.

The only way to get the meat perfectly tender is to use a good quality Italian beef patty.

It will have a little more fat and a little less meat, but will still be tender.

A good quality patty will have the perfect amount of meat and fat in it.

And if you are really looking for a tender patty, use a patty that’s half fat and half fat.

The more fat you add, the more tender it will be.

You’ll need about 3/4-1/2 pounds of beef for this recipe.

You’re probably going to want to use the beef at least once, but if you can, cut up the meat and use it as a topping on the meat loaf instead.

If you use an entire beef roast, it will also make an amazing meat loaf sandwich.

And since it’s always on your side, this meat loaf is sure to be a hit with your family.

Enjoy!
