Chuck Roast

Italian Beef - Freezer Meal

Italian beef sandwiches are almost as important to Chicago as deep dish pizza. The flavors of spicy peppers and slow cooked beef is what makes this dish truly memorable. This version is for a freezer meal, a meal you can make ahead and freeze then cook all together in a slow cooker.
