Why I Love This Recipe
If you're really looking to do the big honest cheese steak, you need to start with great meat like a well marbled rib eye. But we found this shortcut a few years ago. Boars head "london broil" Roast beef is arguably the best deli product they make. We buy a pound and a half, it's already sliced, we simply cut it into strips. It's already cooked, so it doesn't need much time in the pan. It's already very well seasoned, so you might not even want to add any more spices like salt and pepper. Oh, and it comes out Yummy!
Ingredients You'll Need
Fresh Hoagy (or sub) rolls. Depending on Size, 4 - 6
1.5 lbs of Boars Head "london Broil" deli lunchmeat
10 slices of White American "cooper" cheese
1 large onion or two medium sliced
1 large or 2 medium Green or Red bell peppers sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 -2 teaspoons of salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
8 ounces of sliced white button mushrooms
put your olive oil and butter in a pan, on medium - high. When good and warm, toss your onions and bell pepper in the pan. Cook them "soft" where the onions and peppers are no longer crunchy, but aren't cooked soft as you would for onion soup. You still want some body to them. Call it 7 - 8 mins.
When you're about half way into cooking the onions and peppers down, toss in your sliced mushrooms. Stir to mix well.
Once the veggies are where you'd like them, take your cut up London Broil Roast beef and place it in the pan. Turn down the heat to medium low, as the meat is already cooked, we just want to get it hot. Using a spatula, mix it really well with the veggies.
Now is the time to add the salt and pepper and hot flakes IF YOU WANT THEM. Because the Deli meat is so well seasoned, you might not want to. Grab a piece of the heated meat and give it a taste.
At this point, you have a couple options. Option 1 is to take your American White "cooper" cheese and tossing it in the pan to melt with all the meat and veggies. Then once it is sufficiently melty and gooey, and all mixed up, simply spoon it onto your sub rolls and have at it. this is the easy way out, as you're still only using one pan, on one burner.
Option two, is this. Set the pan on low just to keep the meat and veggies warm, and fire up your broiler. Spoon the meat and veggie mix onto your sub rolls, and layer the sliced cheese on top. Then pop into the oven to broil for a few minutes, and let the cheese "envelope" the meat and veggies inside the roll. This is my preferred way of doing it, but it takes more time,
