Made some Cheesesteak Sandwiches

robnybbqrobnybbq Posts: 1,829
Made some cheese steak sandwiches last night.  Used a flank steak that I marinated for ~45 minutes in (Soy sauce, steak sauce {butcher], garlic powder, Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express, and Guldens Brown mustard).

Got the Egg up to ~350 and put a frying pan on the Egg to cook the Vadalia onions with butter until soft. Once the onions were done I cranked up the Egg to 500.  Put the steak on and cooked to 140 - took about 15-20 minutes I guess (drinks were flowing).

Let the steak rest while I put on my indirect ceramic stone on the Egg, lowered the temp and waited for the Egg to come back to ~350 (~10 minutes).

Cut up the steak and put the steak onions and provolone cheese on the rolls and on the Egg until the cheese melted.

Came out GREAT!  I want more now but there are NO leftovers.  Friend came by and loved it as well.  The best was my young daughter coming up to me a little later and giving me a hug telling me the steak was delicious.

    I agree. The best part is your daughters approval via hug. Well done. Looks good from here

    Looks great Rob!  Steak sammie with a side of tots...can't beat that!  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    That's a great looking sandwich and the hug is the best reward for egging...

    Now, being from the Philly area, while they are a great looking and I have no doubt tasty sandwich, they are not cheesesteaks :)

    These are cheesesteaks... Just the most notable(not necessarily the best in town by any means)

  • Great looking sandwiches!

    I made some "cheesesteaks" from leftover bottom round that I did up for deli roast beef.  Sautéed some onion and green pepper, then seared off the thin beef.  Topped off with provolone then tossed on a hoagie roll.  As "Hapster" mentioned I know it's not the right beef or Amoroso roll, but it's the best I could do here in Tampa :)
