Cheese Steak – Recipe of the Week

In the first installment of my “Recipe of the Week” segment, I’ve decided to start with one of my favorite foods of all time:

The Cheese Steak Sandwich.

I’m not talking about a Philly Cheese steak here, because some people prefer to use that term in reference to a very specific  recipe… and to be quite honest, I think some of the best cheese steak sandwich recipes these days don’t even find their origins in Philadelphia.  So anyways… scroll down for an absolutely delicious cheese steak sandwich recipe.

1 cup mayonnaise
2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound beef round steak, cut into thin strips
2 green bell peppers, cut into 1/4 inch strips
2 onions, sliced into rings
salt and pepper to taste
4 hoagie rolls, split lengthwise and toasted
1 (8 ounce) package shredded mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano

1) In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and minced garlic. Cover, and refrigerate. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C).
2) Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute beef until lightly browned. Stir in green pepper and onion, and season with salt and pepper. Saute until vegetables are tender, and remove from heat.
3) Spread each bun generously with garlic mayonnaise. Divide beef mixture into the buns. Top with shredded cheese, and sprinkle with oregano. Place sandwiches on a baking pan.
4) Heat sandwiches in preheated oven, until cheese is melted or slightly browned.
