Hot Steak Sandwich

    25 minutes

    This is a wonderful steak sandwich. If you have time, freeze the steak ahead of time. Then, with your sharpest knife, slice the frozen steak as thinly as you can.

    Serves: 1 

    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1/4 medium onion, sliced
    • 4 large fresh mushrooms, sliced
    • 1/4 green capsicum, sliced into long strips
    • 250g well-marbled steak of any type, sliced as thinly as possible
    • 3 tablespoons chopped pickled hot peppers
    • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
    • 2 slices sharp Cheddar cheese
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 1/3 baguette, cut in half lengthwise

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a large frypan over medium heat. Add the onion; cook and stir until tender. Push onion to the side of the pan and add the mushrooms. Cook and stir until softened then add the capsicum and cook just until tender, about 3 minutes. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.
    2. Add the remaining butter to the frypan. No need to clean the pan, just let it heat up a little bit. Place the steak in the frypan along with the pickled peppers. Season with salt and pepper. The steak cooks really fast, just a couple of minutes. Once the steak is mostly browned return the onion and capsicum to the pan. Cook until heated through.
    3. Turn off the heat and place the slices of cheese over the top of the pile so they can melt. Scoop the whole pile into the awaiting bread, making sure to pour some of the juices onto that wonderful sandwich.

    Just so happens, this sammie is the same in northeast MA. I made one yesterday for the first time and a hint would be to get the rawest deli roastbeef and have them shave the meat at .04 on the slicer. I can't get a really good cheesesteak where I live now in AZ, so I got going on my own and it came out great. I carmelized onions, charred a red and yellow pepper. Incorporated the prepared onion/peppers with the pan-fried shaved steak, topped with white american and it was delicious. I will probably expand with pepper rings and different cheeses but this one was great on a sub roll.  -  25 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was the easiest steak sandwich to make and my family loved it! I used provolone instead of the sharp Cheddar which gave it a smoky flavor. I will fix this again.  -  08 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is the "quintessential" Massachusetts cheese steak! Pop the thing under the broiler for a few mins., if you like toasty bread. Serve with chips, pickle and a coffee shake!  -  01 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
