Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs flank steak, sliced thin & against the grain
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced into thin strips
  • 6 cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 sweet mini peppers, deseeded & sliced
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar
  • 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella
  • 1.5 tbsp steak seasoning, divided
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, room temperature for easy spreading
  • 5 Bolillo rolls can use hoagie or french rolls
  • 4 tbsp olive oil, divided

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, heat two tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.  Add the flank steak & one tablespoon of seasoning & cook (stirring occasionally) until no longer pink.  Remove from heat. 
  • In a cast iron skillet on a different burner, heat the remaining olive oil over medium heat.  Add the onions & mushrooms.  Cook until caramelized & nicely browned all over, about 5-7 minutes.  
  • Add the mini peppers to the onion mixture & stir & cook for another 2-3 minutes.  
  • While the veggies are finishing up, slice the steak into little bite sized pieces.  Add the steak bites & any remaining oil/seasoning from the skillet they cooked in to the cast iron skillet with the veggies.  Stir everything together & let rest while you prepare the bread. 
  • Slice the rolls in half length-wise.  Use your fingers to tear out the centers of the bread slices to make a canal in each half.  (Reserve the removed bread for a different use.)  Lay them in a single layer on a baking sheet that's been lined with foil for easy clean up. 
  • Spread each slice of bread with a little bit of cream cheese.  Sprinkle the top of each bread half with the remaining steak seasoning.  
  • Fill each bread half with the steak / veggie combo. 
  • Mix the shredded cheeses together & use it to top each sandwich with about 3 tablespoons or so (or more, to your desired liking).  
  • Broil about 4 inches from heat for 3-4 minutes, or until cheese is melted & tops are just beginning to brown.  Voila!

Notes

It only takes a split second to burn food under the broiler so be sure to watch your food constantly.
