For those of you who do not have Portillo’s near you (I am so sorry), this is your chance to make the next best thing!
Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
Cut the green peppers into quarters. Remove the the seeds and ribs. Place in a baking dish. Coat with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Bake for 1 hour.
Once the peppers are cooked, pour the au jus (see note below) into a pot and heat on high.
Slice the croissants from one end to the other without cutting all the way through—you want a pocket. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese.
Once the au jus is hot, add the cooked peppers. Let the peppers soak in the au jus for a couple minutes. Add the roast beef. You don’t want to cook it too long; just heat it up.
Add the hot beef and the peppers to the croissants. Top with giardiniera. Serve with a side of au jus.
Note: At the deli, if you buy 1 pound or more of roast beef, they will usually give you a container of au jus. That is what we do. You could also make your own.
This sandwich is “the bomb”! My husband loves steak and I am too bored with a simple slice of meat. To mix things up a bit, I made this sandwich for dinner the other day and it turned out heavenly.
Flavorful steak with sweetness from onions, some melted cheese and a kick of garlic. Yum!
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
