The steak hoagie! Some might call it a cheesesteak but cheese isn’t completely mandatory for a good sandwich. Sauteed peppers, sliced and seared steak, and a butter toasted bun.
1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak, sliced thin
1 red pepper, sliced thin
1 green bell pepper, sliced thin
1 small sweet onion, sliced thin
2 tablespoons butter
4 slices Provolone cheese
4 soft Hoagie rolls
Salt and pepper
- In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add sliced peppers and onions and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook the peppers and onions for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally until vegetables are softened but not caramelized completely. The peppers should have a tiny crunch to them still.
- Remove peppers and onions from the skillet, add another tablespoon of butter, and add all the sliced steak in a single layer. Let cook, undisturbed for 3-4 minutes. Season steak with a big pinch of salt and pepper. Ideally, the steak will get a little crust on it, but it’s okay if it doesn’t. Stir steak and cook for another 1-2 minutes until the steak is mostly cooked through. Remove steak from the skillet.
- Wipe skillet out. Slice a hoagie bun in half and lightly butter or oil it. Place on the skillet, cut side down. Add a big handful of steak and peppers and onions on the other half of the skillet in the shape of the hoagie. Turn heat down to medium.
- Let bun cook until it’s toasted. Once steak and peppers are steaming, add cheese if you are using it.
- Remove bun from the skillet and add a lid to melt cheese completely. Then scoop the steak and peppers onto the hoagie bun and eat while warm!
