Add these easy Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches to your list of quick dinner or lunch ideas – you only need a handful of ingredients and less than 30 minutes to make them!
I love the relaxing feel of a fresh breeze wafting in through the window after a light rain. Our weather has been so perfect yesterday and today that I almost can’t believe it. (I mean, highs around 70 during the day and lows in the 50s at night in late April? Florida, you’ve outdone yourself.)
Although, I am anxious for some sunny days at the beach. So, while I am loving these mid-range temperatures, I won’t complain when it warms up a little and I can go swimming. 😀
As the weather moves toward the hotter days of summer, I tend to leave behind the soups and heartier dishes that I cook during winter and shift to quick and easy one-pan dinners or sandwiches. The house stays cooler that way and I generally prefer not to eat heavier foods when it’s sweltering outside.
In light of that, I am sharing a sandwich recipe today! Bring on summer!
A moment of honesty: Since I’m from the South, I’m completely willing to say that I don’t know exactly what the “authentic” version of a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich is supposed to taste like. The following recipe is the result of some experimentation/ideas from other recipes until it has morphed into what Casey and I enjoy. I just wasn’t sure what else to call it…? So, Philly Cheesesteak it is.
For my sandwiches, I like to use whole wheat sub rolls, but I think that a hoagie roll is the more traditional route, if you prefer to do that. 🙂
Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches
- 1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
- 1 onion, sliced into thin strips
- 1 lb deli roast beef, medium rare
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 12 slices provolone cheese
- 6 whole wheat sub rolls or hoagie rolls, 6-inch
In a large skillet, saute pepper and onion in olive oil until tender. Add roast beef and garlic powder and cook until meat is heated through. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Slice rolls almost in half lengthwise. Divide beef mixture between the 6 rolls, and top each with 2 slices provolone cheese. Place sandwiches on large baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for 5-8 minutes or until edges of sandwiches are slightly crispy.
