Cheesesteak Sandwiches Philly or Not, They’re Great!
I make sandwiches quite often for dinner because they’re delicious and easy, and can be tailored to individual tastes. One of my ‘things’ about sandwiches though are that you have to start with good bread. No wonderbread over here, thankyouverymuch. I throw together a loaf of NYT No Knead Bread to start, it only get’s better from there.
I then got a skillet nice and hot with a bit of oil and put in my steak seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper. All I did was sear the top and bottom, it only took about two minutes per side.
Take the steak out of the skillet and cover it with a bit of foil or something on your counter. Leave the hot skillet on your element and add in your onions, mushrooms, and peppers and cook them for about 5 minutes until they’re tender. After that, throw in the scallions and garlic and cook for another minute or so.
While all those veggies are cooking up, go ahead and slice up your steak nice and thin and cut out any fatty bits. Ew! Go ahead and add the steak and a handful of cherry tomatoes into the pan and season with a bit more salt and pepper. While this is heating up, cut your bread to desired thickness and spread some garlic butter onto one of the halves and then add a slice of cheese. I’d suggest mozzarella or provolone or even swiss but feel free to use whatever you like.
Then top with the meat veggie mix.
Not sure how many calories this is, but it’s a lot. Bread, meat, cheese. Yum! The meat mixture would be great for fajita’s too I bet, this made lots so we had some for a few days; and since I bought that steak on sale it was a super cheap dinner.
Here are the ingredients:
oil for skillet
Steak about 10oz
salt and pepper to season
handful of mushrooms, sliced
one medium onion sliced
one yellow pepper, sliced
2 scallions, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
15 cherry tomatoes, sliced
your choice of cheese
Bread (I highly suggest the No Knead Bread but feel free to use whatever you like best, just nothing that gets soggy easily)
I hope you give this a whirl, you’ll love it! I usually serve it with soup or salad depending on whatever I happen to have in the fridge.
