I have been looking for Portillo's Italian beef sandwich recipe for years. I have tried several on different recipe sites and none have the flavor like theirs. Please help.

This is a wonderful recipe.I love this for sandwiches. I think you would need to change the seasonings to try to replicate the beef you are looking for though.

I looked at that recipe bd, but it is not the same consistency that this place serves. The one you just posted is more like a boiled and shredded beef. Yours is closer to what I remember minus the same seasonings.

I found this pretty close but had to add more seasoning. To cook the peppers I put them in the crock pot in big slices for about 30 minutes or so until they "look right" and are at your preferred tenderness. The cut of meat will probably be the toughest. I went with chuck roast and fork chunked it. As expensive as shipping is I am about to break down to get it though.
