Ingredients
Loaf dough
Italian Beef “stuffing”
Au Jus Dipping Sauce
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl or stand mixer; add the warm water, honey, yeast, and let foam. Mix in the olive oil. Add the flour and salt and mix using a dough hook or a wooden spoon and eventually your hands. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes. (The dough should not be sticky, add more flour if needed) Leave the dough in the large bowl and cover with a towel for 1 hour.
  2. While the dough is resting, saute the onion and peppers in a medium skillet with a tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Let the onion and peppers cook for about 15-20 minutes or until they are soft and onions are translucent. Set aside.
  3. Once your dough has doubled in size, roll the dough on a floured surface. Try your best to roll the dough into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick.
  4. Layer the roast beef on top of the dough, leaving about an inch of bare dough on the sides and a few inches at the bottom. Spread the green peppers and onion over the beef and top with the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  5. Begin at the top and roll the dough into a tight log. If there is access dough on the sides, trim it down with a knife and pinch the sides closed to cover the “stuffing”. Try your best to seal the dough by pressing down on the ends.
  6. Lay the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, seal size facing the pan. Let the log rest for 15 minutes. While the loaf is resting, preheat the oven to 410 degrees.
  7. Whisk the egg with the tablespoon of water in a small dish to make an egg wash. Once the log has rested, brush the loaf with the egg wash covering all sides.
  8. Place the baking sheet in the oven and back for 25 minutes. The top of the loaf should be golden brown. Remove from the oven and let rest 5 minutes before slicing with a bread knife.
  9. While the loaf is baking, add all of the ingredients for the Au Jus in a small bowl and whisk together.
  10. Serve the au jus as a dipping sauce for the Stuffed Italian Beef Loaf
Recipe Notes

Don’t worry if your loaf comes out of the oven looking a little funny, it will look much prettier once in slices!
