Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 lb Boneless Sirloin Steak
2 cups Mozzarella Cheese (other cheeses of choice)
1 Onion
Bell Pepper Of Choice
2 Tbsp Oil
1 Tbsp Butter, Melted
2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 1/2 tsp Fast-rising Yeast
3/4 cup Warm Water
2 cups Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Olive Oil


Oven Temperature: 350°F

*Place steaks in freezer for 1 hour prior to cooking; to slice they need to be solid, but not frozen all the way through; once they've been in the freezer at least 30 minutes, start the bread dough

*In a large bowl, combine warm water and yeast; stir to dissolve, and let it sit 5 minutes

*Check to make sure the yeast "woke up" that it made bubbles, then add salt and sugar; stir in flour, and transfer the dough to a floured surface to knead

*Knead the dough 4-5 minutes, until smooth; drizzle with 1 tsp olive oil to coat the outsides

*Cover and set aside in a warm place for 1 hour to rise (you can wrap the top of the bowl, then flip the bowl on the top of the dough on counter

*While dough is rising, get the steaks from the freezer, lay them out on a cutting board and use a very sharp knife to slice as thinly as possible on the diagonal through the steaks

*Transfer all the steak slices to a bowl; heat a griddle or large flat pan to 375 (or medium-high heat)

*In a small bowl, combine seasoned salt, garlic, and pepper; stir to combine the spices

*Drizzle 1 Tbsp olive oil on the griddle; add steak pieces and season with spice mix; cook 4-5 minutes or until steak is no longer pink (cooking time will depend on how thinly sliced)

*Remove from the griddle and set aside

*Thinly slice onion; heat a pan on medium-high and add 1 Tbsp olive oil; sauté onion 5-7 minutes until golden brown and tender; add sliced bell peppers and season with salt & pepper

*After an hour, remove the risen dough from its warm spot; cut in half, roll out one half into a long rectangle, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with garlic and parsley

*Flip the dough rectangle over and spread steak down the middle; top with onions, pepper, and cheese (and any other desired toppings)

*Using a pizza cutter (or small knife) cut slits roughly 1 inch apart down both sides of the dough; they do not have to be perfectly spaced or even, the braiding will fix that

*Starting at one end, cross one piece of dough over the toppings and gently press onto the other side; cross one piece from the other side, and continue crossing along the dough until you run out of dough

*Place the whole "loaf" on a large baking sheet and shape it into a heart, if desired to make a shape, cross the ends at the bottom to form the point

*Brush the top with melted butter; bake 20 minutes or until golden brown on top (makes two loaves/hearts)
