It begins with the most premium top sirloin roast. We then slow roast and steam it for hours until it’s cooked to a beautifully tender, medium rare. (We then reserve the drippings and create an au jus that’s bursting with Italian beef flavor!) It’s then thinly shaved, and vacuum packaged- allowing you to warm it gently (in under 1 minute!) in the au jus/gravy to mouthwatering perfection. Feeds 8-10.
Our Italian Sausage is a 1950’s family recipe created by Victor Bomprezzi, Sr. For 3 generations, the Bomprezzi family has been crafting and supplying freshly made Italian Sausage to some of the best-known Chicago beef and dog stands. This is an exclusive recipe (which includes grinding fennel into the sausage!) that has been the pride of Chicago for over 70 years! Our original blend has just a bit of heat from red pepper flakes to kick up the flavor profile.
Giardiniera (pronounced jar-deen-YAI-uh) is Italian for “from the garden” and is a Chicago tradition in many Italian American households. Ours is an 8oz blend of pickled veggies and sweet peppers- packed and preserved in oil or, as we consider it, liquid gold! It adds texture and a satisfying crunch and is just what you need to bring your hot dogs, burgers, sandwiches, nachos, antipasto platters, and pasta salads to life. In Chicago, you’ll even commonly find it served on pizzas, and no Italian beef sandwich is complete without it!
For over half a century, the Turano family has been dedicated to baking delicious and authentic European-style bread right in Chicago. And only one roll, and a French one at that, really holds up to the Italian Beef sandwich. This classic roll, with a high protein content is hand formed with care and is hearth-baked, creating a light, crunchy top, crisp golden-brown bottom, and a tender, fluffy inside. The high protein content yields a roll that won’t fall apart from that dipped beef's juiciness!
