Italian Beef Sandwiches

If you can't find Italian rolls, substitute a sturdy bread that will soak up the juices in this moist, delightfully messy sandwich.

Cooking Light OCTOBER 2009

  • Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich and about 1/3 cup cooking liquid)

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 (2 1/2-pound) rump roast, trimmed
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped green bell pepper (about 1 medium)
  • 8 (2-ounce) Italian rolls
  • Giardiniera (pickled vegetables), chopped (optional)

Preparation

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a large zip-top bag, and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

2. Place beef and marinade in an electric slow cooker; cook on LOW 8 hours or until beef is tender. Place beef on a cutting board (reserve cooking liquid); let stand 10 minutes. Thinly slice beef; place in a shallow dish. Pour cooking liquid over beef.

3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper to pan; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Slice rolls lengthwise, cutting to, but not through, other side. Hollow out top and bottom halves of rolls, leaving a 3/4-inch-thick shell; reserve the torn bread for another use. Arrange about 3 ounces beef and 2 tablespoons bell peppers on each roll. Drizzle 1 tablespoon cooking liquid over beef and peppers; top with giardiniera, if desired. Serve with remaining 2 1/2 cups cooking liquid for dipping.
