How to Make Italian Drip Beef Sandwich


  • 1Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • 2Season roast with salt and pepper.
  • 3In a large Dutch oven heat vegetable oil over medium high heat.
  • 4When hot sear roast on both sides, around 3 minutes per side.
  • 5Remove roast to a platter, set aside.
  • 6Add the beef broth, tomatoes with juice, pepperoncini with juice, and pimentos with oil/juice.
  • 7Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and stir with a wooden spoon. Make sure any brown bits on the bottom of the pot are released.
  • 8Turn off heat, add the roast, cover with some of the peppers, cover with a lid, place in oven-center rack.
  • 9Roast for 4 and 1/2 hours to 5 hours. You want this "fork tender" and easy to shred.
  • 10When done shred beef-keep it in the pot with all that lovely juice.
  • 11Mince and mash garlic, add to olive oil.
  • 12Cut Italian loaf of the horizontal, place on a cookie sheet.
  • 13Evenly spread olive oil/garlic blend on each side.
  • 14Evenly sprinkle parmesan cheese on each side.
  • 15Place under broiler, turn on and watch carefully. You want your cheese "just" toasted.
  • 16When done remove bread.
  • 17Using a slotted spoon remove meat mixture and layer onto bottom side ofhot bread, however much you want.
  • 18Cover hot meat with sliced smoked provolone.
  • 19Top with the other half of the bread and slice into equal portions.
  • 20If you wish, strain some "au jus" into small bowls for dipping-I do.
  • 21Stand back and mind the snapping teeth.
