Oh My Goodness. Who doesn’t love a cheesy steak sub? I truly have no other words to say right now…..yum. Excuse me while I get some napkins.
Cheese Steak Subs
2 lbs rib eye steak, frozen and cut very thin
4 (8-inch) soft sub rolls
1 onion, sliced thin
2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
8 slices white cheddar or provolone cheese
If you are slicing the steak yourself, freeze it first. Using a sharp knife, shave the frozen steak as thinly as possible against the grain. Mound the meat on a cutting board and chop coarsely with your knife, 10 to 20 times.
Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and heat oven to 400 degrees. Split rolls open, spread on baking sheet, and toast until lightly browned, 5 to 10 minutes.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat until just smoking. Add half of the meat in an even layer and cook, without stirring, until well-browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir and continue to cook until the meat is no longer pink, 1 to 2 minutes. If adding onions, do that now and sauté with your steak.
Repeat until all meat is cooked. Drain on paper towel to absorb grease. Wipe out skillet with paper towels.
Return steak to the skillet over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper and saute for about a minute or two. Lay cheese on top of steak and allow to melt completely. Then fold the melted cheese throughout the steak and remove from heat.
Reduce heat to low, sprinkle with Parmesan, and lay American cheese over the top Let cheeses melt, about 2 minutes. Fold the melted cheese into the meat thoroughly. Divide the mixture evenly among the toasted rolls and serve.
