Italian Beef Sandwich Kit

Choose your Delivery Date at Check Out!

Italian Beef has been a Chicago tradition since 1925, and Irving’s authentic Italian Beef is as tasty and full of flavor as it gets. Irving’s lean domestic beef rounds are seasoned with fresh spices, then oven-roasted—never wet-cooked—and the drippings are used to make their delicious au jus gravy. Then they thin-slice the delicious beef and pack it with Italian bread, mild and hot peppers, and au jus gravy—everything you need to recreate the Chicago Italian Beef experience in your own kitchen.

Irving’s Italian Beef Sandwich Kit includes:

  • 2 pounds of thinly sliced, premium Italian roast beef
  • 8 soft Italian hero rolls
  • Mild & Hot Peppers
  • Au Jus Gravy

Step 1- Heat the Gravy: Place gravy in a double-boiler (a pan that is inserted into a pot of simmering water). Heat all the fat and spices to just below boiling, being careful not to boil the gravy. Now turn the heat down/off to create an ideal holding environment for the gravy.

Step 2 – Making the Sandwich. It’s important NOT to put the beef in the gravy until you’re ready to make your Italian Beef sandwich. Separate beef slices, and dip 3 to 4 oz. of beef into the gravy for 30 to 45 seconds. Place hot beef in French bread or crusted roll. Stir the gravy and ladle 3 to 4 oz. onto the sandwich. For best results, always ladle the gravy from the bottom of the pan to the top of the pan to insure an even distribution of spices on the sandwich. Never allow the beef to sit in the gravy for long periods as that will cause it to toughen and shrivel.

When finished, remove any beef from gravy and cover. Refrigerate both for re-use.
