I know I said it above, but I have to say it again, everybody loves these! The kids demolish them, adults always reach for a second and people are always asking me for the recipe.

I think it is the comforting effect of dipping bread into gravy/sauce. It feels homely and tastes delicious!

I use the pressure cooker for these Italian Beef Subs, I have tried the recipe in both an instant pot and a stove top pressure cooker. Both work well, and I have included instructions for both below.

There is red wine in the recipe, so ensure that you really reduce the mixture down so the alcohol has evaporated off before you add the lid and bring it to pressure.

I like to give the gravy/sauce (or jus) a hard boil whilst I am shredding the meat. This intensifies the flavour and lets it thicken up a little more.

The beautiful gravy is packed with the flavours you associate with Italy; oregano, basil and garlic. There are 6 cloves of garlic in this beef, but the flavour is mellow and balanced by the sweetness of the onions.

The onions are what give the sauce its thickness. They break down in the pressure cooker and great a thick delicious base. Dip your bread in and feel the comfort!

This recipe makes enough for 6 sub rolls. Or 12 mini subs (like in the pictures above).
But it is really easy to double the recipe if you are feeding a crowd.

I like to use provolone in these, but mozzarella works well too. Or if you love blue cheese these are delicious with some creamy gorgonzola dolce.

Enjoy

    So Anything dunked in gravy is good. I don’t even care what it is, it’s delicious. Your photos made me drool a little bit (jealous while I eat my microwaved egg whites…). This sounds mouth wateringly delicious. I love it.

    Dear, oh dear, Claire…I just subscribed and was pleasantly surprised to have your lovely soup cookbook download but to my amazement and horror I found it to be in an incomprehensible “language”! What has gone wrong? How can I access the English version?

    1. Reply

      Oh no!!!! Sorry to hear this. It shouldn’t be incomprehensible!
      I have just had a test and the download worked for me.
      Most strange!
      Will get a few friends to test it for me to make sure it is working and there isn’t a massive error.
      But to ensure you get it I have emailed you a link, so hopefully that should be all in English.
      thank you for letting me know 😀

    Hi Claire. I make a very similar shredded beef in my slow cooker. Seeing this has me thinking I need to make some soon! Beef chuck has such great flavor especially when cooked with lots of onion and garlic.

      I love my slow cooker, but sometimes I am a bit forgetful/unorganised so having a back up is always handy 😉
      Hope you get your beef subs cooked soon x
