  1. Cut up beef chuck roast into 2 inch pieces. Put salt and black pepper on each side.
  2. In a large sauce pan, put 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil on high heat.
  3. After butter has melted, add the beef and sauté both sides for about 2-4 minutes each.
  4. Then add 4 cups of water to the beef and bring to a boil.
  5. When the water boils, set the heat to medium and let the meat cook for about an hour and a half or until meat is tender.
  6. When the meat has completely cooked, remove it with a strainer and save the beef broth.
  7. Cut up one onion and one green bell pepper into julienne uniform cuts.
  8. In a medium sauté pan, add one tablespoon of vegetable oil and set heat on high. 
  9. Add the chopped onions and green bell peppers to the oil and set the heat on medium/high.
  10. Sauté them for about 10 minutes. Then add, salt and pepper to taste and one teaspoon of all spice and combine and stir frequently.
  11. Add the cooked meat to the onions and peppers.
  12. Mix everything together and remove from heat right away.
  13. Assemble everything. Chopped or shredded provolone cheese in one bowl, broth, meat mix and pita bread.
  14. First add the meat mix, then add the cheese and wrap the sandwich good enough and close the ends so that nothing falls off.
  15. In a panini machine, place the sandwich in there for a couple of minutes. If you do not have a panini machine then just place it on a Sauté pan and put pressure on the top of the sandwich with a plate or something heavy. Do the same on the other side.
  16. Cut the sandwich in half and dip it in the sauce/ broth.                                                                                           Enjoy 🙂
