Ditkas’s Chicago Style Italian Beef is outrageously good. I’m personally involved in the selection of all the food products that carry my name and I have spent a lot of time on this one. I wanted a truly authentic-tasting Chicago Style Italian Beef and Gravy. I called the team together and we came up with a recipe that has the perfect blend of Italian Seasonings, which has a big, bold taste. Chicago is the birth place of the Italian Beef Sandwich. My recipe of ALL Natural Cooked & Sliced Italian Beef and Gravy is the best possible expression of it’s origin. It is convenient and quick…microwave in minutes! Ditka’s Chicago Style Italian Beef now lets you and your family enjoy the same great Italian Beef quality that you find in Chicago’s famous “Beef Stands”…right in your very own home. Da Coach’s Hall of Fame recipe is truly unique in taste, texture and flavor. It’s a winner!
