Mary's Italian Beef

Recipe By: Mary Spero
Serving Size: 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories: Beef Italian


2 pounds beef roast, leftover -- pre-roasted
roasting pan drippings
2 tablespoons fresh oregano -- finely chopped OR
2 teaspoons dried oregano -- finely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh sweet basil -- finely chopped OR
1 teaspoon dried sweet basil -- finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon red pepper -- ground (1/2 to 1)
1 tablespoon fresh parsley -- minced salt and pepper -- to taste
3 cloves garlic --minced


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 on sliced Italian bread with grilled green peppers. Don't forget to put a little gravy on bread! Onolicious!

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.

You won't be sorry! Me ke aloha, Mary
