The Philly Cheese Steak sub
A classic American fast food that has its roots in Philadelphia in the 1930’s and continues its popularity today.
This is a meal that will without doubt impress your family; it is perhaps a Friday treat as opposed to a regular meal!
The main ingredients for this are some fresh rib eye steaks, some strips of cheddar cheese and some soft white submarine rolls. It is a wise idea to add some leafy salad on the side.
You can also add onions and peppers to the mix if desired.
If you are using a cheaper cut of steak, it is important to tenderise the meat before cooking to ensure a great texture of the meat.
• Slice onion and/or peppers into quarters and fry in a little olive oil.
• Slice rib eye into thin strips, being sure to remove all of the fat from the steaks as this can add an unwanted chewy texture. Cook the steak in either a griddle or frying pan to your liking.
• Slice cheese into similar sized strips.
• Once the steak, onions and peppers are cooked, warm the rolls in the oven.
• Mix the onions and steak together and place some of the mixture into each sub roll.
• Layer the cheese strips over the mixture and close the roll.
Serve with a great salad and some chilled drinks, you’ll be hard pressed find a better sandwich at meal times!
