Can anyone else confirm this? If that's true, then you'll need to trim all of the ribs off the pepper and it should be pretty mellow when you use em.
I think there is heat in the seeds as well. Look at crushed red pepper as an example. I do agree about the ribs of the peppers adding heat to a pepper. I know this from making ABT's. However I have found that some peppers are hotter than others when making them. LOL I'm still learning!

Just wondering how much it really adds, as compared to beef stock. I also wonder how much it varies depending on if it is Guinness v. Guinness Extra Stout v. PBR, etc. ;) .
I think any liquid would be fine however its always nice to day we cooked with beer tonight!

I'll be giving this a try in the not too distant future, the only qustion is: how many jalapenos. I like a bit of spice (my wife, not so much). Ah well, easy enough to add more, very tough to take out.
The jury is still out in my kitchen! I think cooking some up in a separate tin and then adding to the sandwich might be a good option if spicy is not preferred. I'm going to try again with one to see.

You living in the Chicago area you can appreciate jardiniere peppers. I think it would be a great idea. I will say when we ate these the best way to describe the taste was a combo between Chicago style Italian beef sandwiches and pot roast with a kick all on a bun! I really enjoyed them and I hope others do as well. Vince
