What is Italian Roast Beef?
Italian roast beef is traditionally a Chicago-style sandwich with sliced or shredded beef. It is cooked with Italian dressing flavors and often pepperoncini peppers. It is usually served on a hoagie roll as a sandwich, but this easy Italian roast beef recipe is a twist on the original version. The roast beef is flavored with Italian dressing, making it quick and easy to put together, and instead of being in sandwich form, it is cooked with potatoes and carrots, like a traditional roast recipe.
Ingredients Needed for Easy Italian Roast Beef:
- Beef roast (whichever kind you prefer)
- New potatoes (the small baby variety)
- Baby carrots
- Zesty Italian salad dressing
- Minced garlic
- Italian seasoning
