10 pounds top inside beef round
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 quarts water
1/2 cup chopped oregano
1/4 cup salt
1/4 cup black pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
35 freshly baked French rolls
1 1/2 pound sliced mozzarella cheese


For roasting times, figure on 10-12 minutes per pound for medium. Check with a meat thermometer for an internal temperature of 130 degrees F for rare, 140 degrees F for medium

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place sirloin in roasting pan and dry roast for 15-20 minutes. Remove pan from oven and add water, oregano, garlic, salt, pepper and pepper flakes. Return to oven and roast at 350 degrees F for 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

Remove from oven. Allow to rest for 15 minutes. Internal temperature will rise 5-10 degrees. Thinly slice beef and pile high on freshly baked French rolls. Add cheese if desired. Reserve cooking juices to make "wet" sandwiches. Garnish with sliced sweet bell peppers and hot giardinara.
