I snagged this beauty from David Rocco. It is truly one of the most delicious sandwiches I’ve ever tried. Next time, I’m going to do some crusty French rolls so we can really soak up the broth! As my daughter Alberta says, “Tummy yummy!”

Bollito with Salsa Verde and Chili Sauce

8 cups (2 L) water
2 lb (1 kg) stewing beef, cut into 1-inch cubes
2 carrots, halved
2 celery stalks, halved
1 onion, quartered
1 garlic clove, crushed
salsa verde*
chili sauce*


To start your Bollito w/ Salsa Verde & Chili Sauce:

Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Add beef, carrots, celery, onion and garlic. Cook for 2 hours or until meat becomes tender. Remove meat from the pot.
Serve the boiled meat with the salsa verde and chili sauce or on a bun as a sandwich.
*See David Rocco’s Dolce Vita recipe for ‘Salsa Verde Sauce’ and ‘Chili Sauce.’
