15 Minute Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches

One of the things I love best about Pinterest is that is has led me to find great new blogs!  Recently, I discovered High Heels and Grills which has some really amazing recipes and fun, quirky writing.  I highly recommend it if you like "real people food."

We tried their Philly Cheese Steak recipe and let me just say, it makes the most amazing cheese steaks!  It's not that much different than the way I usually make them, but the addition of the garlic and little bit of butter make a huge difference.  Fresh garlic is a magical thing. 

I did leave out the mushrooms because the hubs is not a big fan, but check out the original recipe if you want to add them back in. 

Does anyone else have a hate/hate relationship with the broiler?  It's my biggest cooking challenge, but I'm determined not to let it beat me! advice is to watch your bread carefully while it's in the oven because it quickly goes from almost ready to ready for the garbage can. 

The hubs enjoyed these Philly cheese steaks so much, he asked for them again a few days later.  Pin this gem and keep it in the arsenal for quick weeknight dinners.  You won't be disappointed.

Adapted from High Heels and Grills
1 Tbsp. butter
1/2 white onion, cut into thin slices
1 clove garlic, minced
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 lb thinly sliced roast beef
salt and pepper, to taste
4 ciabata rolls, cut in half horizontally
4 slices provolone cheese
  1. Preheat broiler to 450 degrees and place rack in the middle of the oven.  Lightly butter cut side of rolls and place them open, cut side up on a baking sheet. 
  2. Melt butter over medium heat and add onions, garlic and green bell pepper.  Lightly salt and pepper them.  Saute 4-5 minutes or until softened.  Stir occasionally.  Turn down heat if they start to brown.
  3. While onions and peppers are cooking, place rolls in oven and lightly brown (2-3 minutes).  You don't want to brown them too much because you are going to put the back in the oven again.  Watch carefully because they can go from pretty to pretty ugly in seconds.  Remove from oven and set aside.
  4. Once onions and peppers are to your desired tenderness, add roast beef and stir until beef is heated though.  This only takes a minute or two.  
  5. Divide meat and pepper mixture between rolls.  Top with cheese.  Leaving the sandwiches open, place them back under then broiler for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Watch carefully.
