Yield:
4 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • Onions:
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan
  • 2 large yellow skinned onions, sliced very thin
  • Coarse salt and pepper or steak seasoning blend
  • Meat:
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 drizzles
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean beef tenderloin or sirloin, ask butcher to slice the meat very thin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 slices provolone cheese, from the deli counter
  • 4 soft Italian sandwich hogie rolls, split 6 to 8 inches long each, split lengthwise
Directions

Heat a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan. Add onions and season with salt and pepper or steak seasoning blend. Cook onions, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until onions are soft and caramel in color.

Heat a heavy griddle pan over medium high to high heat. Wipe griddle with a drizzle of oil using a paper towel. Sear and cook thin sliced steaks until brown but not crisp, about 2 minutes on each side. Cook steaks in single layers in 2 batches and tenderize by cutting into meat with the side of your spatula while they cook. When the steaks are browned, just before you remove them from heat, sprinkle them with garlic salt and pepper. When all of the steaks are cooked, line each of your split rolls with 2 slices of provolone cheese. Pile 1/4 of your meat and onions on to the griddle and mix together with your spatula. Pile the meat and onions into rolls on top of the cheese. The heat from the meat and onions will melt the cheese. Repeat for remaining servings and serve.

Recipe directions...slice the meat thinly...if we have a butcher. I have a butcher BUT the extra labor to slice the meat...cost too much. Did myself. Putting that issue aside...this recipe makes a delicious sandwich. Thanks Rachael. Annie, Fremont, CA item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was wonderful! My family loved it. Also, added a cheese sauce to top it off with green bell pepper! DELISH! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think that this recipe was a good basis, but could use some definite modifications. I put the rolls in the oven to make them more crispy, and also after I put all the ingredients on the sandwiches, I put the cheese on top and put the sandwiches in the oven. I think that the steak could have used more flavor (I put steak seasoning on it). Also! do not cook the steak for two minutes per side, WAY TOO LONG! Only 30 seconds per side is more than long enough.

Reminds me of these two http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85gYUBIZ2YI. Great Steak Sandwich needs some aged prime rib! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a good recipe for a short cut. Our deli Provolone never really melted ooey gooey into the meat and sandwich. It would be better to make small piles of meat on the griddle, place slices of Provolone on the meat and let the heat melt it a bit before scooping up and putting it on the rolls. But, if you want to emulate the Cheez Whiz consistency, try Bobby Flay's Provolone cheese sauce--its YUMMY and makes it easier for the home cook to assemble the sandwich. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm a college student at Texas Tech University and I just finished making these for some red raiders right before the hugh TTU vs OU game. They were a hit! I did add green bell pepper to the onion mix and it turned out really well. Hopefully the game will go just as well as this meal. Wreck'em tech! item not reviewed by moderator and published
