Hot Italian Roast Beef Sandwiches: I have made this so many times over the years, including once for an anniversary celebration for my mother-in-law and father-in-law. The leftovers are awesome, especially if you turn them into an Italian beef soup. It can be made in the oven as directed, simmered on the stovetop or in a slow cooker. The first two methods really improve the flavor and texture of the meat but the slow cooker provides all of its conveniences and a very tasty result.
Earlier this week I promised you a side dish recipe to go with the Balsamic-Garlic Crusted Pork Loin … the perfect complement to any main dish with Italian flavors. Of course, replacing the Italian seasoning with another spice blend will allow you to pair these potatoes with unlimited options. Think cajun … tex-mex … barbeque … ranch … mmmmmm, choices!
Food Lesson: Potatoes are graded according to size/diameter (among other things). I googled it. Google can be your saving grace in cooking dilemmas. Many, many people have the same questions, no matter how unusual. Make sure you choose a reputable site. Compare different sites. And, even better, experiment with your options. Figure out what you like best.
