Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches

Oh my heck... I though Id surprise my hubby a few months ago with one of his favorite sandwiches, really came through with this recipe! So easy and so good. The only piece of advice, don't get the most expensive choice of meat to make this or you will pay a hefty price! So delish, but I paid a fortune to have my local butcher slice up some rib eye for me and I didnt realize until after he had sliced and packaged it for me how much it would be! Yikes!

Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches

1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
1/2 of a green bell pepper, thinly sliced
4-6 oz button mushrooms, sliced
salt and pepper for seasoning
1 and 1/4 lbs top sirloin or skirt steak (or if you want it extra delish use rib eye)
1-2 Tblsp vegitable oil
4 soft hoagie rolls (get good quality)
8 white american cheese slices or 8 pepper jack cheese slices ( I used provolone as well)
mayo or chipotle mayo

Chipotle Mayo Ingredients

1/2 cup mayo
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
1/2 Tblsp sauce from the adobo pepper can
1 Tblsp lime juice
dash of salt
dash of pepper

1 hour before cooking, place steak in the freezer. (If your local grocery store butcher will slice your meat thin for you, you can skip this step).
When your ready to start cooking, pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
Melt 1 Tblsp butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook veggies until tender.
While the veggies are cooking, remove the steak from the freezer and use a very sharp knife to slice the meat as thinly as possible against the grain.
When the veggies are done cooking, heat 1 Tblsp canola oil over medium high heat.
Place 4 hoagie rolls in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until nice and warm, but not crunchy.
Add half the meat to the pan and season with a bit of salt and pepper. Cook for a few minutes until it is cooked through. Set aside.
Heat a bit more oil if needed and cook the other half of the meat, seasoning with salt and pepper. Return the first batch of meat to the pan, stir in veggies if you wish, and top with cheese. Use 8 pepper jack cheese slices for a spicy version, or 8 white american cheese slices for a classic version. Place the cheese over the meat and when it starts to melt, stir the cheese into the meat and veggie mixture.
Divide the meat among the 4 hoagie rolls.
If using chipotle mayo, combine all ingredients in a blender (may, chipotle pepper, chipotle sauce, lime juice, salt and pepper) and slather desired amount on each roll. Otherwise spread a thin layer of regular mayo on the roll. Cut in half and serve immediately. EnJOY!
