Mouth Watering Italian Beef Recipe
Mom created this delicious recipe for Italian Beef. It is pretty easy to prepare and is really
good on Italian bread as a sandwich, which is the way it should be eaten. Yum Yum!!
2 1/2 lbs of beef round eye roast.
1 package of brown gravy mix.
1 tsp. salt.
1 dash of pepper.
1 tsp. of food seasoning & soup mix (the best is “Podravka Vegeta” it comes in a tin container with
red and white writing, 500g).
4 green peppers – sliced in 8ths.
1. Place the beef in a large pot and cover with water. Boil for about an hour.
2. After an hour, check the beef to determine if it’s done by piercing it with a fork. If there’s blood oozing
out of the beef, it needs to cook a little bit longer. However, if you do not see any blood, drain the water from
the pot and refill the pot with fresh water. At this point slice the beef against the grain into thin slices and
add to the fresh water.
3. Once fresh water has been added to the pot, add salt, pepper, and food seasoning. Cook the beef for about another
1 1/2 hours at medium heat. About 15 minutes before the beef is done, add the green peppers. Once the the peppers
are tender, add the package of brown gravy mix and cook for a few minutes longer until the mix slightly thickens.
4. Taste the gravy once done to determine if additional salt or pepper is needed. If not, simply slice up some
Italian bread and make Italian beef sandwiches. This is a great dish for parties as its inexpensive and hearty.
