  Categories: Home Cookin,
       Yield: 8
 
       2 lb beef roast, leftover,
            pre-roasted
            Roasting pan drippings
       2 tb fresh oregano, finely
            chopped
            OR 2 teaspoon dried
            oregano, crushed
       1 tb fresh sweet basil,
            finely chopped
            OR 1 teaspoon dried
            basil, crushed
       1 ts whole black peppercorns
     1/2 ts red pepper, ground (1/2
            to 1)
       1 tb  fresh parsley, minced
            Salt, to taste
       3 cl garlic, minced
       1    fresh green pepper seeded
            and
         sl into 1/4 inch strips
 
   Thinly slice cooked, roast beef and place in a Dutch oven (or put
   it back into the same pan in which the beef was roasted). Add
   enough water to cover. Add remaining ingredients and bring to
   simmer. After the beef has cooked for awhile, taste and adjust
   seasonings. Cook about 1 hour. Serve beef only on Italian bread
   with grilled green peppers and / or giardinera relish.  As you
   serve dip the sandwich in your gravy.
 
   NOTE: If you fix a large roast for dinner, take the leftovers,
   sliced
   thinly, and put your Italian Beef on the stove to cook, while
   you're cleaning up the kitchen. You can cook the Italian Beef in
   the same pan used for roasting. IF you make brown gravy for your
   roast beef, remove some of the drippings before you make the
   gravy and save them for the Italian Beef.
