Introduction: How to Make a NOT Philly Steak NOT Hot Roastbeef Sandwich
I was in the mood for something different , warm , filling and inexpensive, At first I was thinking about a faux philly cheese steak but I wanted to ramp up the taste so I added a packaged brown gravy.. Here's how I did it.......
Step 1: The Ingredient List
Here's the stuff I used
packaged gravy mix
torpedo roll (or any hard roll, pita, burritto wrap etc)
Step 2: Slice and Chop
slice up the green pepper, jalapeno and onion
Step 3: Fire Up the Pan
Did I mention bacon drippings? no? Oh well, melt a tablespoon or so of bacon drippings in a frying pan.
Step 4: Peppers and Onions
drop the sliced peppers and onions in the hot pan, salt and pepper to taste
Step 5: Prepare the Meat
Usually I just break up the minutes steaks but this time I sliced a stack of 7 into slices and added some steak sauce
Step 6: The Meat
Once the peppers and onions are softened a bit move them to the side of the pan and add the steak, put on a lid to promote faster cooking. Lift the lid a couple times and stir the meat
Step 7: Combine
Once the meat has lost most of its pinkness mix the meat and veggies together. Push the mass off to the side of the pan and add the packaged gravy mix and either water or white wine per package directions. Stir it all together and let cook over low heat for 10 minutes
Step 8: Time for Cheese
Put a couple or 5 slices of cheese over the meat and veg mix, cover with a lid to help the cheese melt and then stir it all together
Step 9: The Roll
slice open the torpedo roll leaving a thin bottom and thicker top, open the roll and tack out some of the stuffing (gives more room for the filling) You can either save the innards for bread crumbs or do like I do and give the dog a treat
Step 10: Its DINNER
Load the roll with the meat mixture, put some french fries on the side ( I like my fries with ketchup and steak sauce) Serve with cold beverage of choice
We have a be nice policy.
