This is our favourite sandwich to have for dinner on a lazy weekend. I like to serve it with sweet potato fries and a Caesar salad. Mmm . . . mmm . . . scrumptious!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Season steaks with salt and pepper; allow steaks to come to room temperature, about 15 minutes.

  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat until very hot; lay steaks in pan and cook until they are beginning to firm and are hot and slightly pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Transfer steaks to a warm plate; cover and let rest, about 10 minutes.

  • Melt butter in same pan over medium heat; stir in mushrooms and peppers. Season with salt and pepper; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Toast buns under the broiler until golden, about 2 minutes. Divide mozzarella cheese over bottom halves of buns; return to broiler until cheese melts, about 2 minutes.

  • Slice steak very thinly. Pile steak slices over cheese-topped bun halves; top with mushrooms and peppers. Spread mayonnaise on top halves of buns; place over sandwich.

Cook's Notes:

If you like spice, add some Sriracha or adobo sauce to your mayo.

You can use your favourite cheese: mozzarella, Monterey Jack, Cheddar, or Swiss.

this is my fav go to sandwich! it sooooo tweakable (lol is that a word?). it never turns out the same way twice. sometimes i change up the seasoning on the steak and may season up the mayo with hot sauce or mustard or whatever i feel like at the time. sometimes it's the bun! it's very delicious and nutritious (i'm throwing that in for good measure lol) AND deeply satifying!

This was Awesome! I used leftover steak from last night which i just heated through. I used a red bell pepper from my garden (1st one picked) and added some sliced red onions and garlic to the mushroom mixture. I love how you can really make this sandwich your own..i used BBQ sauce in place of mayo and Monterey Jack cheese because that's what i had on hand. Thanks for the Delicious recipe..will be making this again! Read More
