When it comes to making dinners, easy is key. Although David is the one who stays home during the week, it’s up to me to create a meal plan for the week and write up the grocery list. He then executes the dinners every night. Last night we decided to have some homemade steak and cheese subs, especially since I had received some delicious Piantedosi bread. (They were left over from a company event; this post is not sponsored.) If you’re local to Massachusetts, this bread is amazing!
First step is to chop up a sweet onion, mix it with olive oil and sauté them until they soften.
Next up is to have your awesome husband slice up the steak. Normally we like to get it already shaved but Market Basket’s selection had previously been frozen; I looked for a thin cut steak instead. We ended up with top round that was a little over 1 pound.
Something to note when slicing steak for sandwiches, make sure to go against the grain so that it is easy to pull apart and eat. (David used a Dexter brand knife, picked up at R.M. Flagg in Maine.)
Once the steak is in manageable pieces, add them to the sauté pan with the onions and a couple of slices of provolone cheese.
I added another slice of provolone to the roll; loaded it up with the filling and had a side salad to balance things out.
Seriously though, the bread really makes this dish. The rolls are soft, doughy, and they don’t fall apart. I could have easily eaten 2 or 3, but I was able to keep it to the one. The filling makes about 6 sandwiches.
This will easily be added in to our monthly rotation. We like to indulge in steak dishes every so often, and nothing is better than adding it to a soft roll with melted cheese and onions.
What easy dinner do you enjoy making? Where have you had the best steak and cheese?
