What is an Italian Beef sandwich then?

This is a sandwich popularized in Chicago and essentially comprises thinly sliced roast beef, simmered in au jus. The meat is served on a French roll along with that jus. It’s common for the sandwich to be finished with Chicago-style giardiniera or sweet peppers. Naturally, with such simpler ingredients, the quality of each one is of utmost importance.

A few variations of the sandwich exist such as hot dipped which sees the completed final sandwich dipped in the au just again for good measure.
