Last week I was in Portland and for a few days the week before that I was in Seattle. Portland was for work. It was really good to see some of my co-workers and even meet a few for the very first time. Since I work from home, I hadn’t got to meet some members of my team. It was awesome to get to hang out with them and I ateverywell and even hung out with an awesome friend. I was in Seattle before Portland for the BlogHer Food conference. I had a lot of fun eating, meeting new friends and seeing old friends.
While I was in Seattle, I got these panic texts from Curtis, the washer was broken or he actually said “I broke the washer”. He thought he had overloaded it but I kept texting back saying I’m sure it’s just old. It was really really old.
How To Make Cheesesteaks!
4hoagie rolls, sliced (We love the Publix hoagie rolls!)
1/2green pepper, sliced
1large white onion, cut in half and sliced thick
8 ozmushrooms, sliced
1.25-1.5 lbsbeef ribeye steaks (sliced thinly across the grain and then chopped roughly again so they are small pieces)
salt & pepper
3 1/2 Tbspsalted butter
8 slices of cheese (Provolone or Muenster)
Prepare 4 sheets of foil and slice the hoagie rolls and set aside. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Heat a non-stick skillet with 1 Tbsp butter on medium high heat. Add mushrooms and half of the onions and cook 5-8 minutes or until mushrooms are browned and onions are cooked down. Remove and place on a plate.
Wipe the skillet with a paper towel and add 1/2 Tbsp of butter and return to the stove. Cook remaining onions and bell peppers for 5-8 minutes or until peppers start to brown and blister and the onions are cooked down. Add to a separate plate (unless everyone likes peppers/onions/mushrooms then add to the plate with mushrooms & onions).
Wipe the skillet again with a paper towel and add 1 Tbsp butter and return to stove again. Season half of the steak with salt & pepper and add to the skillet. Reduce to medium heat and cook for 2-4 minutes. Add in peppers & onions or half of the veggie mixture and cook for 1-2 minutes. Divide the meat & veggies in half as pictured above. Add 4 slices of cheese on top and allow the cheese to melt for 1-2 minutes.
Add the cooked meat & veggies and melted cheese to two hoagie rolls. Inside one sheet of foil, roll the hoagie roll tightly and place inside the oven for 10-15 minutes.
Repeat the process with the remaining steak & veggies or like I did with the mushrooms and onions – for the last two hoagie rolls. Serve fresh out of the oven with chips or your favorite French fries.
Notes: If you have leftovers (if that’s possible), refrigerate inside a zippered plastic bag inside (don’t remove it from the foil). Reheat the cheesesteaks in the foil in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
