I love, love, love Philly Cheese Steak Sandwichs. I unfortunately, don't like too many places that make them. I mean I do live in Texas and not in Philly. Darn it. But that's ok, I love our Texan BBQ.
I can't seem to get my husband to want to eat at the Deli every time I get my cheese steak craving, so I had to come up with my own recipe. I have trialed and error-ed my way through a couple of different ideas. Ya, I could have just Pinterested it, but I had a certain vision of the perfect sandwich, and well Pinterest is cheating, sorta-kinda.
Ok anyway, you wanna know about my recipe or NOT? Ok, then on with the PHILLY!
First things first, you could do prime rib or steak meat like that, but I love roast beef, and the good news is its already cooked and sliced so what could be better or easier?
I sometimes buy mine in the deli at my local grocery store, but when the line is too long, or this kind is on sale, I get the packaged kind instead. I like this kind as it has a great flavor and I don't feel like I need to season it at all during the cooking process.
Next you need a 1-2 Bell Peppers and one onion.
Saute the sliced onions and bell peppers first with some Olive Oil and then add in your roast beef slices.
Add some extra olive oil to keep the meat from drying out, plus it adds a wonderful taste.
When its browned up nicely, its done!
I love to dip my sandwiches in Au Jus, so I get the Au Jus gravy mix by McCormick, and cook it per the directions.
Put the beef, onions and bell pepper in a fresh baked hoagie and add mozzarella cheese.
I've also been told it taste good with Provolone and or Monterrey Jack Cheese. I suppose I'll try it one day.
Now, my husband likes his with Cheddar cheese/Mexican blend cheese. So I added pre-shredded cheese to his hoagie instead.
As well I did the same for our kids but I take out the veggies as they don't like the onions or bell pepper.
I hope you enjoy, your Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich. Maybe I should call it the Allie Cheese Steak. What do you think?
Thanks for tuning in! Until Next time...
