Combine the fabulous flavors of steak, peppers and cheese in hoagie buns for hot and delicious sandwiches ready in just 25 minutes!
tablespoons olive oil
medium onions, thinly sliced
red bell peppers, thinly sliced
lb beef top round (about 1 1/2 inch thick), cut lengthwise into paper-thin strips (Ask your butcher to slice the beef. However, if you prefer to slice it yourself, freeze the beef 30 to 60 minutes or until it’s firm but not frozen to make it easier to slice.)
teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
hoagie buns, split
cups cheese dip (from 15-oz jar)
In 10-inch skillet, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of the oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat until hot. Add onions and bell peppers. Cook about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and tender. Remove skillet from heat and remove onion mixture from skillet; set aside.
Toss beef with salt and pepper so seasonings are evenly distributed. To the same skillet, add remaining oil and butter and increase heat to medium-high. Add one-fourth of the beef and cook 1 to 2 minutes, turning once, until beef is browned. Remove beef from skillet, and repeat to cook remaining beef.
Return beef to skillet with onions and bell peppers. Stir in Worcestershire sauce. Divide beef evenly among bottom halves of buns and spoon 3 tablespoons cheese dip onto each. Cover with top halves of buns. (If your cheese dip has been refrigerated, spoon it into a microwavable bowl and microwave 10 to 20 seconds on High or until warm).
Why it Works: Say Cheese!
Everyone loves the taste of melted cheese, but making a cheese sauce can be time-consuming. And if overheated, cheese can separate. Processed cheese, made up of a combination of different types of natural cheese (usually an aged cheese for flavor and a young cheese for texture), was invented to make melting cheese foolproof. Processed cheese manufacturers can change the color, flavor and texture of their product by starting with different cheeses. These cheeses are melted and then mixed with emulsifying salts—chemicals that stop the cheese from separating. The result? Melted cheese with no fuss.
