Steak Hoagies with Mushrooms, Onions, and Peppers
-recipe from Cook’s Country Magazine
Steak hoagies are traditionally made with thinly shaved pieces of beef that are quickly cooked on a griddle and then layered into rolls with thinly sliced cheese. To translate this recipe for the home cook, here’s what we discovered:
•Skip the tedious step of shaving the meat and simply pan-sear steaks and then slice them thin.
•Use high-quality strip steaks for their beefy flavor and tender texture.
•Sliced mozzarella or American cheese can be substituted for the provolone.
•The sliced steak, sautéed vegetables, and cheese are piled into the rolls and then quickly baked in a very hot oven to melt the cheese. Make cleanup easier by lining the rimmed baking sheet with foil.
2 strip steaks (also known as top loin or shell steaks), about 1 inch thick
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion , sliced thin
1 red bell pepper , seeded and sliced thin
8 ounces white mushrooms , sliced thin
1 tablespoon steak sauce (such as A.1.)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
4 (6-inch) sub rolls , slit partially open lengthwise
6 ounces thinly sliced Provolone deli cheese
Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Pat steak dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Cook steaks until well browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to plate and let rest 5 minutes, then slice thin against the grain.
Meanwhile, add remaining oil, onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to empty skillet and cook until vegetables are softened and golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Off heat, stir in steak sauce, oregano, and sliced steak until well combined.
Divide steak mixture among rolls and top with cheese. Arrange sandwiches on rimmed baking sheet and bake until cheese is melted and rolls are golden brown around edges, about 5 minutes. Serve.
