PHILLY CHEESE STEAK...
Here we are at the end of Healthy January and we can indulge, yes sirreee Bob! Not saying we should become total slobs for the rest of the year but one "cheat" can't kill...
I love bread in all its forms and when that bread comes stuffed with meaty goodness and doesn't need a lot of ingredients... sigh*
Baguette/French Roll/French Stick...
250 Grms Beef Sliced Thinly
1/4 Cup Grated Mix of Cheddar & Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 Cup Sliced Red and Green Chili Peppers
1/4 Cup Sliced Green Pepper
1/2 Cup Sliced Red Onions
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Tablespoon Garlic Sauce (Optional)
1 Teaspoon Hot Sauce (Optional)
Salt & Pepper
Add half of your butter into a dry sautee pan and sweat down your onions until they are translucent but not brown, we still want it to have a wee bit of crunch. 4 minutes.
Take out of pan and set aside.
Add your peppers and soften for about 2 -3 minutes (with no extra butter) until you can just begin to smell them.
Take out and set aside.
Now the best way to get proper thin slices out of your meat is this. Pop it into the freezer for about 30 minutes to firm up then go at it with a sharp knife. Simple!
Add remaining butter to pan and pop in your meat. Season with salt and pepper and allow to brown. it will let out its juices and as the cooking goes on re-absorb them then begin to fry a bit with the butter. 5 minutes.
Re-introduce peppers and onions and let them hang out for another 30 seconds.
As that cooks, cut out length of bread you want and rub garlic sauce on both sides and add hot sauce. Now, before i would rub on some butter and toast up that bad boy but my ways have changed and we are going for a hot summer bod... :p
Pile on your cheese...
...pop in into the microwave for a minute to get all melty...
Indulge and pass out for 2 hours like someone, who isn't me by the way, did.
