Cheesesteak Sandwiches

This is definitely NOT an authentic Philly cheesesteak sandwich, but it’s good nonetheless. While it looks like there are a lot of steps, this is a really easy recipe.

1-3 lb. eye of round roast
1 small onion
1 green pepper
1/2 c Worcestershire sauce
1-2 t seasoned salt
6-8T butter
Hot sauce
4-8 slices provolone cheese
4 good quality buns, ciabatta, etc.
salt and pepper to taste
  1. If the roast has thawed, place it in the freezer for approximately 20 minutes. If it has not thawed, remove it from the freezer and let it thaw for approximately 30 minutes.
  2. Slice the onion and the pepper into strips.
  3. Very thinly slice about half of the roast. Having the roast partially frozen will make this process easier.
  4. Melt 2T butter in a heavy frying pan.
  5. Add the onions and cook until softened.
  6. Remove the onions, add more butter if needed and cook the peppers until just starting to soften.
  7. Transfer the peppers to the plate with onions.
  8. Melt 2T butter in the pan, and add the meat in a single layer.
  9. Let it cook for approximately 1 minute until it has started to brown.
  10. Flip it over and cook the other side until brown.
  11. Add the Worcestershire sauce.
  12. Sprinkle in hot sauce to taste (5-6 shakes for spicy, 2-3 for mild).
  13. Add another 2 T of butter to finish the sauce.
  14. Return the onions and peppers to the pan and stir to combine.
  15. Turn off the heat and layer the cheese over top of the meat and place a lid on it.
  16. While the cheese is melting, toast the buns.
  17. When the buns have toasted, ladle onto the buns being sure to spoon the sauce on top.
