These were delicious and came out looking great too. The only change I made was I had a large muffin tin and 8 inch tortillas so I didn't cut them. Took a bit longer to cook. Great for brunch

Made this tonight and I thought it was very good, if you don't really like lemon I'd look for something else, but I still didn't feel the lemon was that strong. Sauce came out great..I used salted butter and didn't put as much salt in the end..

Very good, can't wait for the guests to arrive tonight...I didn't add the olive oil to help with a few lower calories..fat from Pancetta was fine and I used thyme instead of rosemary. Seems like a great make ahead dish and will probably flavor thru even more."

I have never had a "real" Chicago sandwich but I thought this is wonderful, nice and spicy. I read all the reviews and was a bit confused about the roasting pan and covered or uncovered etc. I did mine in a dutch oven covered and my steak didn't have a fat cap. Sauteing it was a bit difficult since the meat was bigger than the pot. After I did"
