Drippy Beef Sandwiches

The name of this dish says it all…well, almost all.  These sandwiches are most certainly drippy, but what the name doesn’t tell you is that they aren’t just dripping with juice but also dripping with flavor 🙂  These are so simple and while they aren’t fast food, meaning they aren’t quick to make, they are really easy.  And once you’ve tasted them you WILL be making them again and again we are certain of that 🙂  Good food eaten with those we love brings joy, and makes life so very abundant.  Bon Appetit!




Drippy Beef Sandwiches

4 lbs.boneless chuck roast (don’t do less than 4 lbs. because you’ll only be annoyed with yourself that you don’t have more)
salt and pepper
1/2 stick of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 cups beef broth (we like the Better Than Bouillon brand)
1 cup water
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
3 cloves of garlic minced
16 oz jar of peperoncinis
10-12 French rolls, sliced open but not all the way through
Sliced provolone cheese (optional)

Dry the meat with paper towels and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper on both sides.  Heat the butter and olive oil in a Dutch oven or covered roasting pan until it is hot and then add the meat.  Brown on both sides, this should take about 4-5 minutes per side.  Don’t skip this step, as browning the meat adds a depth and richness of flavor that you won’t have if you don’t first brown the meat.

Pour in the beef broth and water.  Add the whole jar of peperoncinis, including all the liquid, and sprinkle the rosemary and garlic in as well.  Cover and simmer on low heat for 4-5 hours.

When you are ready to serve, shred the meat and place on French rolls making sure to add some peppers on each sandwich and drizzle with some extra juice.  If you want to “gild the lilly” as they say, add a slice of provolone cheese to the bottom of the roll then top with the beef.  The hot meat and juice will melt the cheese.  You can also make this a day ahead and refrigerate the meat and juice right in the pan and heat it up when you are ready to make the sandwiches.
This makes 10-12 great sandwiches.  It is perfect for a party or big gathering and even more perfect for an average sized family because you can have the leftovers another night.  Cook once…eat twice.  Love, joy and abundant living….and abundantly delicious EATING!
