" Dear Phillip, So happy to review your Chicago-Style Italian Beef Seasoning.

Born and raised in inner city Chicago, I needed my Italian Beef fix out here in California! Nothing out here at all close to the rich, spicy, peppery, flavor of your seasoning. Add that to thin sliced top or bottom round, and I might even enjoy a Cubs game again!

I've gone to the lengths of ordering Portillos and having it shipped up here to the Lost Coast. Al's, on Taylor St., nor Mr. Beef on Orleans, offer that option.

I have been eating Italian beef's ( hot and sweet, dipped) since my childhood in the Father took me to Carl's stand on 146th ( I think), when I was a youngster!

We'd bring home a dozen for everyone. ...the best gardinerre being at Mr. Beef. Your seasoning should be sold in quart jars! I use a whole one each time I make it! The best part about your fantastic seasoning is giving these old hippies out here a taste of the best of what the Chicago meat packing district still has to offer.

I've tried others... but none that I lie about and tell people I made! Thanks for my notoriety out here....I've even posted your seasoning in Facebook!" Skylar Blue - Hydesville, CA

Chicago-Style Italian Beef Seasoning is availabe online only. So give it a try and let us know what you think and we'll send you a free copy of our ebook Mia Cucina Pazzo. We would love to hear from you.
