Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

I like kind of soft inside crusty outside bread for my cheese steaks….

I had a package of steak in the fridge I was going to have John do on the BBQ this afternoon.  But I had all these tomatoes turning ripe from my tomato vines too. So I was thinking it might be fun to do Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches instead. I love them and they are really, really easy to make.

Philly Cheese Steaks are really easy if you find sirloin steak on sale….

The trick is to slice the raw steak really, really thin with a sharp knife. That is kinda tedious. It is easier if the steak  is still a little bit frozen.

Slice it thin…season it….fry it up in a frying pan…that’s it! 

They are good with tomatoes too and I have like a gazillion in my garden ready to eat. And luckily I had a big onion ready to pick too. So that’s what we are doing today.

These tomatoes and the big onion are straight from my garden!

I sliced the steak really thin on the cutting board and seasoned it with Montreal Steak Seasoning. Then I fried it up in a fry pan with a little olive oil. I fried the onions in butter and olive oil with a shake of garlic salt until they looked caramelized and soft.

Coarsely chopped onions
These are from my garden! 
They’ll be great on Philly Cheese Steaks! 

I just buy a big loaf of french bread for the Philly Cheese Steaks! 

Then when both were about done I put them in a pan and added the provolone cheese, just like 6 slices all around the top of the meat and onion mixture.  Then I got my french bread ready. The sandwiches really are better the more cheese you add…I know that’s not very healthy, but it is the truth.

Now don’t those Cheese Steaks look super yumm?

I really like fresh tomatoes on mine….these tiny ones are the newest ones ripe off the vines in our  backyard garden. 

You could add sauteed green peppers to this sandwich too and sliced tomatoes like we like it. That is just personal preference. But you could just go with the steak and cheese and onions on your rolls.

I don’t think these are low calorie…but they are so delish!  Just try not to think about it…..

I always look for some steak on sale and this meal is really yummy but very inexpensive too.
Here’s our Tuesday night Cheese Steaks!  I made some strawberry shortcake too. I had to do
something with all my frozen strawberries I’ve been keeping!

Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches….yummy and easy! 

They take literally 10 minutes! 

Next time you are at the market get a small steak and try making your own. You will love them.
