Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich

Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich


2 Turano Brat Rolls
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 large white onion, cut in half and thinly sliced
½ large green pepper, thinly sliced
1 rib-eye or flat iron steak (about 3/4 pounds), sliced thinly across the grain and then roughly chopped*
salt & pepper to taste
butter, for cooking
4 slices Havarti cheese (Provolone or Muenster would work as well)


Preheat oven to 250°F.

Heat a non-stick skillet with 1 tablespoon butter on medium high heat.

Add onions and cook for 5 to 8 minutes or until onions are softened and translucent.

Season the steak pieces with salt & pepper. Add to the skillet and cook for 2 to 4 minutes or until just a little bit of pink remains. Divide the mixture in half, pushing each half to one side of the skillet. Place 2 slices of cheese on top of each half; cover and let melt for 1 to 2 minutes.

Carefully transfer each half of the meat mixture to the inside of the split hoagie rolls. Wrap tightly with aluminum foil; place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until warmed through. Serve immediately.

Let cool 10 minutes then cut into squares and serve with salted caramel sauce or vanilla sauce and whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
