Me Want Cheese Steak

What is not to love about a Philly Cheese Steak? It has steak, loads of cheese, way too much bread, and my most favorite fungus. I seek out this HEALTHY treat at every mall food court. We have even delved into the most frightening parts of the City of Brotherly Love to find the best cheese steak around. We were not disappointed. So, when I found this incredible recipe for cheese steak, I almost cried tears of joy. You have to check out this blog ENVY MY COOKING to find some great ideas to spice up your meals. Here is the cheese steak recipe. ENJOY!!

For 2 sandwiches you will need:
1/2 package of fresh baby bella sliced mushrooms
1 small to medium onion (I like sweet onions but white are fine)
Steak sliced rolls (these look like sub sandwich bread)
4 slices of Swiss cheese
1/2 pound of roast beef sliced from the deli

Heat griddle to 400 degrees (these sandwiches work best with a griddle but you could make one at a time in a frying pan). While griddle is heating up cut up onions into straws no more then about 1 1/2 inch pieces. Spray griddle with cooking spray. Put onions and mushrooms on griddle and use a spatula to move onions and mushrooms so they don't burn. Wait until the onions are almost translucent and add roast beef slices. It is easiest if you pull the roast beef slices apart into chunks before cooking. The roast beef doesn't need to be cooked so just wait until it turns a deeper brown then the pinkish color that it has. Mix it together with the onions and mushrooms and separate it into two equal rows. Place two slices of Swiss cheese on each sandwich and then put the steak roll on top like a tee pee. Hold the top like a hot dog bun and put a spatula under it. Gently turn over sandwich by trying to keep as much as you can inside the sandwich as you turn it. Anything left over scoop up and stuff inside. It doesn't have to be perfect. Then put whatever condiments you like on it. My favorites are Mayonnaise, tomatoes slices, red or green peppers and lettuce.

This looks really yummy Melisa! I just want to add that one of the BEST things you can put on a Philly Cheese Steak is CREAM CHEESE!! I mean . . . what's more Philly than Cream Cheese? It is so yum, and I wish it was a regular part of the Cheese Steaks that restaurants sell. Try it out sometime! Thanks for the recipe!
