Italian Beef Sandwiches

Guyyyyyys. I can’t tell you how much I love Italian beefs. They are a true, time tested, go-to meal for me. Best of all, you can save half in the freezer, and two weeks later, I can have them all over again!

So let’s talk about my love story with Italian Beefs. It started with my supper busy working mother and her hungry children who could not wait to eat when she got home. So she would whip up this beauty right before she left for the day, and I would come home from school to the sweet and savory aroma of the best freaking crockpot meal ever. Now, this is my favorite meal to make. I try my hardest not to cook it too much, it would be horrible if I got tired of these delicious creamy, spicy flavor for Italian beef.

PS… does anyone else LOVE when the juices soak into the bread, and it makes this creamy, savory concoction?
