An easy meal that feels like a treat. There used to be a great little restaurant in our city that served cheese-steak sandwiches and that was about it. Unfortunately it closed and we don't have anywhere to go to fill that craving that now comes. A craving I'd never had before because I'd not experienced a cheese-steak sandwich prior to going to this particular shop. I think it was only there for a couple of years. In light of this new craving for something unavailable to me I decided I'd figure out how to make it at home. Here it is;
Now, go home with your steak and remember you'll need; Vidalia or sweet onions (1/sandwich if they are small), 1-2 green bell peppers, some type of white cheese-we like mozzarella, swiss, or provolone, and bread. Hoagie rolls are the best, hot dog buns work well in a pinch, and if you have neither plain sandwich bread is fine.
Slice onions (preferably Vidalia because they are sweeter) and green bell pepper. Just make 1/4-1/2" wide strips(no I don't get out a ruler, just eyeball it). Put these on your stove-top griddle (if you have one) at 250-300 degrees Fahrenheit with a touch of olive oil. Cook, turning regularly so they don't burn, until they get soft/limp, and move to a plate. If you don't have a griddle, just cook them in a skillet until they get soft. Next take your shaved ribeye and put it on the griddle laying each piece out flat. They will only take a few minutes to cook. Maybe 1-2 minutes on each side. Continue the process until all meat is cooked. On your bun/bread layer first the cheese, then peppers, then steak. If you are using sliced bread put a piece of cheese against each slice of bread. The end. Eat, enjoy. It's fantastic. I don't put any seasoning on the meat. My husband likes a touch of malt vinegar on his sandwich, I prefer it dry.
