  • Heat olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Stir tri-tip steak slices into the hot oil and cook, stirring constantly until they begin to brown, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Add onion, yellow pepper, orange pepper, sweet hot peppers, and garlic basil spread; cook and stir until onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in mushrooms, capers, Marsala wine, and anchovy fillet and cook until mushrooms are browned and wine has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

  • Place provolone cheese and Gorgonzola cheese on top of the hot beef mixture and gently fold until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Remove beef-cheese mixture from heat.

  • Spread each hoagie bun with about 1/4 cup artichoke aioli. Spoon beef-cheese mixture into buns and garnish with basil.

What a blend of great flavors. I needed a larger pan, so did meat, mushrooms and basil in one and and carmelized the onions and peppers in the other, combined for last couple of minutes to blend the flavors. Read More

Oh my! I wish the photo I posted of this recipe did it justice :( This is wonderful. It is less complicated than it looks though I will prep the ingredients in advance next time.....and there will be a next time. I did forget to add the mushrooms and next time I will skip the anchovy, but it is definitely a hardy & tasty meal on a cold winter night. Get things going early in the day and this will be done in a jif at dinnertime. Thanks so much for sharing:) Read More

Phenomenal sandwich. Best I've ever made. Only thing wrong with the recipe is that you've gotta use a toasted bun, and I would suggest getting a good chibata bun. Read More

This was FABULOUS. What a flavour! One of the best sandwiches I have ever made. I used parmesan bread as I didn't have any rolls and toasted it sensational. It was so good I forgot to take a photo. Must be why there is only one...everyone is too busy eating! Read More

Absolutely delicious sandwich. Couldn't find tri-tip steak so used sirloin tips instead. I've made this three times in lessthan 6 months my husband puts this at the top of his favorites. My only complaints are that it is time consuming to prepare and it is always too soupy. I drained off about 1 cup of drippings after cooking the steak and at least another cup at the end. My wine NEVER evaporates as the recipe states. Even with these cons it's worth it! Read More
