I got hungry for a steak sandwich tonight. Not just the kind that you buy here in central Pennsylvania, but the kind I used to eat when I worked at Pizza Outlet in Pittsburgh. These steak hoagies used slab steak for the base – the ones that look like “steak-umm”. My favorite one would be stacked tall with mushrooms, onions, green peppers, mozzarella cheese, lettuce and loads of Hellman’s mayo. To take me back I had to whip up a batch of my hoagie rolls.
While the rolls cooled, I heated the slab steak and seasoned it with salt and pepper. Once cooked, I placed them on the roll with the veggies and cheese and broiled them until the mozzarella melted and browned. Next, I added the cold toppings and served.
The taste was pretty close to the ones I used to eat while on pizza delivery runs. This sandwich is delicious and quick so there’s no doubt I’ll be doing this again soon. It’s no Philly Steak, but it is a very different and tasty steak sandwich experience.
