I can do more than elaborate, Master Jedi.

Star Wars: The Old Republic is massively multiplayer online roleplaying game, somewhat like Star Wars Galaxies, but hopefully better and longer lived.

I spent a couple of years there, and sometimes I really miss the skies of Corellia. My alter ego there was Mayor of our town and second in command of our guild. I still keep up with some of the friends I made there.

Portillos or Buono Beef. Both are very good. Wet = dip in the au juice Hot = Giardiniera http://www.viennabeef.com/products/i...?PRODUCT_ID=23

The sandwich should be so sloppy it is hard to eat without a bib

The key is good beef. We are so time pressed we rarely cook a tenderloin of beef Italian style. Boar's Head out of the deli counter works well.

I learned to cook from my grandmother and mom. They never measured anything, except in the palm of the hand. I cook the same way. It drives my wife nuts because she wants exact measurements. What we are making is an aromatic, robust Italian au juice. Add a little at a time and you'll get it just right.

In a mid size pot add once can of beef consume' and one box of beef stock.

Seasonings:

Fresh Basil Leaves, tear or chop them into small bits. It helps bring out the flavor if you wake Basil up with a little rubbing before you tear or chop.
Anise Seed, grind them to a pepper like consistency with a mortar and pestle.
Fennel Seed, grind them to a pepper like consistency with a mortar and pestle.
Fresh Garlic, use a garlic press over the pot. Use the juice and pulp.
Fresh Ground Pepper
Celery Seed, grind them to a pepper like consistency with a mortar and pestle. Not too much.
Kosher Salt, as needed.

Cover the pot and simmer for an hour. Let the pot coil a bit then add the thinly sliced beef. Tear the beef into smaller pieces. We just want to warm the beef. If the beef discolors quickly and becomes tough the au juice is too hot.

Buns are the hardest part. Try to find an Italian style bun with a light to medium crust. The heavy artisan style breads are too tough. No whole wheat or sweet wheat. The buns have to be a salty dough style. If the buns are packaged in plastic bags, freshen them in an oven pre-heated to 400. It doesn't take long to crisp them so they feel and smell like fresh bread.

Slice the bun length wise about 80% of the way. Fill with tender beef. Quickly dip the sandwich. Too long and it will fall apart. Not long enough and it won't be the right consistency. Spoon on the giardiniera along with oil from the jar. Wrap in wax paper and let it stand for 5 minutes.

Enjoy!
