Italian S̶o̶n̶n̶e̶t̶ Beef

If ever you wish make Italian beef
Ponder purchase instead from those who boast
As they know the difficulty the most
And will save you the agony and grief.
Better a buyer than recipe thief-
Better consumed from a talented host
Better to reward another in toast
For your struggle will be rewarded and brief.

For at home there is beef, and broth as well
To craft for a party of one. Time spent
Too cooking peppers and bread, Hunched and bent
Over stove to finish as the hours fell.
Your sandwich is fragrant, spicy, and wet –
The chef’s beef is better. On that you can bet.

Man, I don’t know if you can make an Italian Beef at home to compare to a Chicago mainstay. Probably? I’ve had them at home, and they can get pretty good. But, dang, the pros know what they are doing!

I always get mine dipped. Don’t see the point otherwise.
