Italian Beef

My husband's family always made Italian beef for family get togethers. I put this recipe together a lot of years ago when trying to make the perfect Italian beef for his family. This one became my go to recipe from then on! The flavor is delicious! I like to serve it on toasted hoagie buns with melted mozzarella over the top. You could top your Italian beef with giardiniera if you like, as is a traditional topping for this dish.
