Rolls are too soft for this type of beef, if you don't put the sauce on the side. This is typical of PHX 'hard' rolls, which are not hard unless you leave them in the sun for three days!:)

From Our Editors

Al Ferreri, his sister Frances, and his brother-in-law Chris Pacelli Sr. developed their signature italian-beef sandwich out of necessity in 1938. The economic depression made meat harder to come by, so the trio of sandwich makers made their supplies last by cutting thinner slices of roast beef.

Their business started with them feeding guests at family weddings, delivering meals to local hospitals, and catering the country's first food fight, but they soon founded a more permanent curbside food stand in Chicago's Little Italy neighborhood. Despite their relatively humble beginnings, Al's Beef rapidly expanded and now boasts franchises throughout the Chicago area and across the country. The family business has garnered plentiful acclaim throughout the years, having been named Adam Richman's best sandwich in the Midwest on the Travel Channel show Best Sandwich in America in June 2012, appearing on Richman's Man v. Food and earning a place on Esquire's list of The Best Sandwiches in America in 2008.

The cooks begin every morning by roasting cuts of beef for the day and cutting french fries. The hearty italian-beef sandwiches can emerge from the kitchen with simple, unadorned meat or with blankets of melted cheese and spicy handmade giardiniera.
