Prep Time: 8 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 16 minutes
- 32 oz. thin sliced rib eye or eye roll steak
- 6 T soya bean oil
- Cheese (we recommend Cheez Whiz®), but American or Provolone works fine
- 4 crusty Italian rolls
- 1 large Spanish onion
- Optional: sweet green and red peppers sauteed in oil
- Optional: mushrooms sauteed in oil
Heat an iron skillet or a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 3 tablespoons of oil to the pan and saute the onions to desired doneness. Remove the onions, then add the remaining oil and saute the slices of meat quickly on both sides.
While the meat is cooking, melt the Cheez Whiz® in a double boiler or in the microwave. Once the meat is done, place 8 oz. of the meat into the rolls. Add onions, and pour the Cheez Whiz® over top. Garnish with hot or fried sweet peppers, mushrooms and ketchup.
