Mozzarella Cheesesteak Sandwiches


makes 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 of your favorite sandwich rolls, split and toasted if desired
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 sweet bell peppers, sliced (red, yellow, or orange)
  • 6-8 thinly sliced frozen sirloin portions (the kind used to make cheesesteak sandwiches)
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley, crushed in the palm of your hand
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a very large skillet over medium heat, saute onions and bell peppers in 1 tablespoon of olive oil; stirring frequently until the onions caramelize and the peppers soften.  
  2. Remove from the pan and set aside.  
  3. In the same pan over medium-high heat, cook the frozen sirloin patties in remaining tablespoon of olive oil; stirring frequently until separated and fully cooked.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.  
  4. Blot any excess fat from the pan with paper towel and discard.  
  5. Lower temperature to low.  
  6. Arrange cooked beef evenly in a single layer in the skillet.  
  7. Evenly distribute the onions and peppers in a single layer on top of the beef.  
  8. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the onions and peppers.  
  9. Crush the dried parsley in the palm of your hand and sprinkle over the cheese.  
  10. Cover skillet with a lid until the cheese melts.  Alternately, you can place the skillet uncovered in a 300F oven to melt the cheese, about 5-10 minutes.

Note:  my husband insists his cheesesteaks be served on a toasted roll that has a healthy schmear of Dukes mayo.  Enjoy!
