Ingredients

4 (8-inch) hoagie rolls, homemade preferred

2 3/4 ounces blended canola/olive oil, 60/40 ratio

10 ounces sliced thin sweet onions in 1/16-inch slices

28 ounces sliced thin rib-eye steak in 1/16-inch slices

2 ounces melted sweet butter

1/4 teaspoon salt

Provolone cheese

Optional ingredients: homemade tomato sauce, bell peppers, mushrooms, or your favorite cheese

Directions

  1. For the hoagies:
  2. Preheat frying pan over medium-high heat. Cut the hoagie rolls horizontally to open up and make a pocket. Add the blended oil to the pan and stir in the onions. Put the steak on top of onions and add 1/2-ounce of the butter. Cover the pan for 2 1/2 minutes. The meat should have a cooked appearance on top and rare underneath. Using a fork and spatula separate steak from the onions. When the meat is cooked add the salt, remaining butter, and provolone. Cover to the pan to melt the cheese. Divide the steak mixture among the hoagie rolls and serve. If you like, you can add the optional ingredients to the steak mixture before serving.

Cook’s Note

If you desire, feel free to add mushrooms, bell peppers or homemade tomato sauce to the onion-steak mixture or use a different type of cheese.
