We got some new toys for Christmas that we did not ask for but were very glad to receive – an electric pressure cooker and a deli slicer! This is the first of many possibilities that these new pieces will lead to. They both debuted on this dish which is mostly inspired by Travel channel type shows about Chicago Italian Beef Sandwiches like Al’s. I have never been to Chicago but would love to visit and seeking out one of these sandwiches would be one of my first stops. These toys made this a really quick and easy dish because we had the right tools!

I love Italian food and I love spicy and this is a great combination of the two. I looked up Fra Diavolo and the not always wise internet says that it translates to “brother devil”. I knew of the devil part in reference to its spiciness, but am not sure about the brother part, but sure we will go with it. I served this over pasta with shrimp, but like many Italian sauces, once made it is very versatile and could be used in many different ways.
