Everyone knows what a steak sandwich is. One would immediately think it’s shredded beef seasoned and cooked with onions and bell peppers placed in between a hoagie roll with mayonnaise and cheese. However, so many think that it’s very complicated to make. You have no idea how easy it is.
When it comes to making a steak sandwich, I’d rather prepare it at home rather than buying one. I can’t eat steak, but I love a steak sandwich with lots of onions and bell peppers and smothered with cheese. I dislike it when the cheese is just placed at the bottom or on top layer of the sandwich.
I have been preparing it this way for as long as I can remember; so cheesy and so appetizing you just want to devour it! Mm-mm…good!
Okay, let’s make it. Prepare the ingredients.
*Note: Depending on the heat of your stove, cooking time may require adjustments.
- 1 bag with four pieces of frozen shredded sirloin steak plus 1 piece ( available at Costco. )
- 4 slices of Havarti cheese or Provolone cheese
- 4 pieces of mushrooms, sliced
- 1 medium onion, sliced lengthwise
- 1/2 green bell pepper, sliced lengthwise
- 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced lengthwise
- 1/2 orange bell pepper, sliced lengthwise
- 2 hoagies rolls
- salt and pepper to taste
- mayonnaise (optional)
Heat a skillet with a lid over medium-high heat and add the shredded beef. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and let cook for 7 minutes* or until the shredded beef sweats and turns brown.
Remove the lid and separate the beef. Cover. Let cook for 2 minutes.
Remove the lid. Push the cooked shredded beef to the side of the skillet.
Wipe the skillet with paper towels to remove excess fat.
Turn down heat to medium and add the mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes.* Then, add the onions and bell peppers.
Stir-fry for two minutes. Cover and let cook for additional 2 minutes.* Turn off heat.
Add the cheese.
Cover for 1minute or until cheese melts.
I wish I took a picture, so i could show you how cheesy it was, but the cheese was melting so fast I didn’t want it to melt to a point where it will end up at the bottom of the pan.
Immediately, scoop the cooked shredded steak with melted cheese and place in between the hoagie roll with mayonnaise.
I bet you feel hungry just by looking at it. I could see you salivating. Okay, go make it to appease your hunger. Enjoy! 🙂
