A note about serious food allergies

You got your Philly, you got your Italian Beef (Chicago's finest, go Bulls!), but not every beef sandwich that's great comes from America. Let's go well south of the border to Argentina, home of the chimichurri, which tastes as fun as it sounds. Spicy, light, and lively, it dresses the steak sandwich up in something truly lovely. Sprinkle on a little cheese, and you've got your new go-to steak sammy.
