This product is currently sold out.

Italian Beef Sandwiches are as synonymous with Chicago as any food can be and for as long as they’ve been a part of the Windy City, the Buona family’s been a part of making them. Buona, The Official Italian Beef of Chicago Sports, starts with lean all-natural choice sirloin which is seasoned with Italian spices, seared at high heat then slow roasted for hours to produce their famous gravy. It is then hand-sliced thinly, layered on Italian bread and topped with Chicago’s finest extras: peppers, giardiniera, cheese, red sauce or extra gravy—however you like it! This kit also includes a quart of The Original Rainbow Cone ice cream for dessert.

10 out of 10!!!! Had a party and served this on French rolls with Provolone. Everyone loved it!

It was more than perfect, I followed the step by step instructions and it was great. I have been wanting to have one of those sandwiches since I first saw them on a travel TV show years ago. I think Goldbelly has done a superb job bringing all this together. I was a little surprised at the coleslaw as I am used to the mayonnaise based kind, this reminded me a bit of sauerkraut. But it is all good!

The meat was beautifully seasoned and the giardiniera was insane! I wish the meat came in two small containers instead of one large one - that way I can freeze one and use the other right away.

The Buona Beef was the same as being in a Buona Beef restaurant and eating it there. I wish we had a choice between Hot and Mild Giardiniera though. The Hot is way too hot for my taste.

We love the beef and gravy. My husband is from Chicago so it was a birthday treat for his birthday. We live in Santa Fe now.

We moved from the Chicagoland area 21 years ago. No one in our area of Arkansas even knows what Italian beef or a combo is. So we order a couple times a year when the wave hits us. Buona Beef is wonderful. We will order again soon!

It is the tastiest Italian beef sandwich in the country. The perfectly seasoned beef with the scrumptious gravy and the spicy giardiniera and mini baguettes were out-of-this-world delicious! Don't go through life without having at least one of these magnificent sandwiches!
