Philly Style Cheese Steaks
This is MY version of these amazing sandwiches!
24 count box of Steakumm's
2 Green peppers cut in 1/4 inch slices
8 shallots sliced and separated ( or diced)
1-2 cans of mushrooms(optional)
Provolone cheese ( 10 slices 2 per sandwich)
Preheat griddle to 375-400 degrees
This works best on a griddle but can also be done in a large frying pan just would have to separate the the veggies and use just enough for each sandwich
On your preheated griddle add the peppers and onions and mushrooms if you included them. Cook them for about 10 minutes or just until soft stirring them around often. Its ok if they get a bit crispy they will add more flavor.
After veggies are cooked through move them towards the center of the griddle so that the outer edges are clear and lay out 8-9 pieces of the meat ( they are doubled do not separate). Let them cook for about a minute then start shredded them with your spatula. Once you have them all shredded mix them in with veggies and cook about another 3-4 minutes stirring often. Once everything is fully cooked separate enough veggies and meat ( total mixture about a cup to 1 1/4 cups) per sandwich. You should be able to have enough for 5 sandwiches. Lay 2 slices of provolone cheese over each one and let melt( takes about a minute) once cheese is melted pick the entire section up with two spatulas and lay it on your bun put mayo on it ( or whatever you prefer) and you are done.
Should make about 5 sandwiches
*Note I toasted my hoagie bread prior to putting the sandwich together. All I did was spray it with some non stick butter flavored spray and threw it in a HOT skillet just until lightly browned ( edges were on darker side)... This is up to you if you want to do it as close to the real thing.
