Some people visit Chicago and come away missing deep dish pizza. Sorry Lou Malnati’s, but I’ll stick with my ny/nj thin crust. What I came home missing when I visited Chicago almost ten years ago is a good Italian Beef sandwich. Since then I have been searching NJ for one. First you need thin sliced roasted beef swimming in a flavorful Italian gravy:
And then it is served on a roll, always with the roll soaked in the gravy, then topped with hot Italian giardiniera:
Today, at least, the best Italian Beef sandwich in NJ is in my house.
I’m hoping to find a local spot to indulge my craving. Does anybody know of one?
