Philly Cheesesteaks

This is what we are having for dinner tonight, jealous? You should be. These are amazing, and super easy. This picture is from when we had them for dinner last week, and we are having them again this week, they are that good. And so easy to prepare. These days how much work it takes has a lot to do with how good the meal is for me. There was a bit of chopping, but I did it during nap time and I was amazed how quickly it went without 100 interruptions.

I love a good Philly Cheesesteak. There is an amazing restaurant in Michigan where my sister lives. I actually had my first Cheesesteak there at Big Johns, and I was in love. Once my Mom was visiting my sister and she actually got one, got a cooler and brought it home with her all the way to Idaho. For years no other has compared to Big Johns, until this recipe.

Heres a shout out to Our Best Bites, where this recipe came from. Those girls are amazing, check them out.

This recipe calls for a food processor, and I don't have one, but honestly it wasn't bad at all. I froze my steak for about an hour and a half before I sliced it, easy as can be. Just remember to slice thin. That is what will make it tender no matter what cut of meat you do. So with out further ado here is the recipe for the picture you have been drulling over.

Philly Cheesesteaks

1 lb. steak (you really can use any cut; since you're going to cut it up and season it heavily, there's really no need to splurge on a fillet mignon.)
2 Tbsp. butter
1 green bell pepper
1 medium yellow onion
White cheese (mozzarella or Swiss or provolone)
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper
Hot sauce -I didn't have hot sauce, and still super yummy!
4-6 Hoagie rolls

Slice bell peppers and onions . Set aside. Slice frozen meat . Set aside. Heat 2 Tbsp. butter over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add steak and stir-fry. Season heavily with salt and lots of freshly-ground pepper. When meat is about half-cooked, add peppers and onions. Stir occasionally, cooking until most of the liquid is evaporated and meat is cooked through. Season with hot sauce to taste. It's up to you, I didn't use any and I thought they were great. Slice buns and spoon steak mixture inside. Top with cheese and place under broiler (I used my toaster oven) for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is slightly toasty. Enjoy

I need to remember to come by more often, this looks sooo good. And now I have to have! Pregnancy cravings are something I can't ignore.
